  2. I own a 2008 Subaru Legacy GT. It has over 222,000 miles and still has original turbo, head gaskets and exhaust. If you take care of your car it will take care if you. What destroys most turbo cars are improperly done mods. If you're gonna modify a turbo car make sure you have the money to do it right, never go for cheap.

  3. Hey Scott my names Brendan I just got a turbocharged 1.8 03 Jetta when I test drove the car the first time the reverse didn’t work the dealer promised he’d fix it wish he seemed to do but 31 days after purchasing the car the reverse went out again now it works when it wants to sometimes it does sometimes it doesn’t drives fine he explained that there was a Solenoid issue does this sound Plausible or am I looking at replacing my transmission? Any words of advice?

  4. I totally agree. My VW Jetta 1.8 Turbo, costed over $6,000 in maintenance, and MANY repairs, from New to 83,000 miles. I used synthetic oil, top filters, oil changes around every 4,000 miles. So, I just traded it for a new '17 Toyota Camry 2.5L I4. Sadly fewer and fewer cars are being made w/o Turbo's. For 2018 Honda dropped the Accords NA 4 cylinder and optional V6, for two Turbo 4's. Thankfully Toyota kept the NA 2.5L I4 and V6, but added both Direct and Port Fuel Injection, adding power and mileage and keeping the intake valves clean by maintaining MPI, instead of DI only like Honda. Toyota also kept geared transmissions.

  5. I dont think smaller displacement engine should wear out faster. You can just make bigger piston skirts – meaning less pressure on cylinder wall – meaning longer life. Also you can enlarge crankshaft bearings, so they also last longer. solved

  6. "you get better gas mileage because the turbo puts more air in" cmon Scotty, you should know, along with more air, there must be more fuel to mantain the Stoichiometric combustion. If you only ram more air in, without extra fuel, the engine runs lean, and that leads to problems. So i dont agree with your simplified assertion that the engine will consume less. Now you may be comparing with bigger displacement engines, but you didn't specify the comparison, so…

  7. Scotty missed saying this. You are more likely to have trouble replacing engine parts in a turbo charged car as fewer are sold. My Colt 1986 had to be junked although everything was like new at the factory but it needed two pistons and rings of a lower compression as the turbo required those special parts. More than 10 years had elapsed and even Japan didn't have the pistons. No new pistons, no engine,,,,,no engine, no car. The non-turbo versions are still on the road!

  8. With this video he's down on turbos, but on his latest video he's promoting 4 bangers with turbos over a V6. The high powered 4 cylinders he's recommending are turbocharged. The man has me confused. However, I still love his personality.

  9. I always prefered cars that were turbocharged. To me they are more efficient because the engine is working less to get up to speed quicker and saving fuel as well. Volkswagen and several other european cars were this way for a reason and they are fantastic. If I could add on a turbo to my V8 Cadillac, I sure would to be even faster.

  10. How about this. Direct injection plus turbo= carbon fouling of the intake, ports, and valves. Though this can be negated by a catch can they don't come with it from the factory. Ford's remedy is to replace the head!

  11. My first car, many years ago was a 1984 Mustang with a 2.3 Turbo (it was a GT Turbo, not an SVO). After that experience I have shied away from turbocharged vehicles since then and have not bought another. Granted some of the fault was my own since I was an idiot teenager at the time.

  12. Wow, this video is so full of fail it's unbelievable:
    1: Most people driving ANY type of engine will get worse economy if stepping hard on the gas pedal. It's not rocket science! The whole point of the smaller engined turbo car is that IF DRIVING THE SAME STYLE AND SPEED AS YOU NORMALLY DO, you will get better fuel economy with a smaller, more thermally efficient engine.
    2: "I drive like a maniac". Well that explains your abysmal fuel economy then, nothing to do with the turbo is it? (News flash, you'll also get poorer fuel economy on a non-turbo car if "driving like a maniac").
    3: If you don't maintain your car properly with the correct interval oil changes, it might go wrong….well duh!
    4: There is significant 1-2s turbo lag – Yes, if you live in the 80's. Modern twin scroll turbos and multi turbo set ups have all but eliminated the problem for NORMAL everyday driving. You will only notice the microsecond lag if really gunning it on a track day. How many folks regularly drive on track days? For MOST normal people going about their NORMAL daily lives in NORMAL modern urban traffic/rural smaller roads, turbo lag is NOT a problem any more…..hasn't been for ages.
    5: You NEED higher octane fuel. Er…no you don't. Yes, higher octane fuel provides more power but this is true for ALL engines, whether turbo or not, whether petrol or diesel. They ALL get more power if using fuel with a higher octane rating! I fail to see the point being made. If you mean to say that turbo engined cars must ALWAYS be run on higher octane fuel then that's doubly FAIL because modern turbo cars run fine on lower octane (e.g. 93 as c.f. 98) fuel for their whole lifetime and never experience an increase in problems.
    6: Most modern turbos are designed to last 70,000-100,000 miles before failing which isn't too bad imo. What, were you expecting them to last 1,000,000,000 miles? Reconditioned turbo units for replacement cost $300-$500, hardly going to break the bank after 7-10yrs of motoring is it?
    Sorry but Scotty simply hasn't got many of his facts right here.

  13. Agree with all points. I've had several turbo cars. But if you live in the high country, such as in the rockies in cities like Vail or Aspen. You don't want anything but a turbo charged car. If you don't have one, you won't have any power at all. And a turbo is really in it's element up there. Up in the high country all the negatives of turbos are more than worth putting up with.
