Don't you love it when your new turbo arrives and you go down to your local shop to get it fitted and tuned.

Unfortunately for this guy things could of gone a lot better, As the turbocharged machine hits the dyno in order to do what we would assume is a little bit of tuning, when the turbo proves that it’s doing its job, pulling in a good amount of air, as it yanks a shop towel right off of a nearby bench, sucking it into the turbo which immediately prompts the car to shut down.

We can only hope that the motor wasn’t damaged too badly because just watching that rag get sucked up into the turbo is really pain full. Perhaps a small grill or some sort of filter on the turbo is in this guy’s future.

After watching that clip I'd say once you do that, it’s certainly not something that you want to be a part of ever again.

  • According to Jeremy Clarkson, turbos are a 3 step process. 1) exhaust gasses spin the turbo 2) witchcraft happens 3) you go faster. This is just proving step 2 in the process.

  • And that, boys and girls, is why we use air filters. We don't leave our turbos out to swallow passing squirrels and carrier bags. or, in this case, towels.
