Watch These Dudes Feed Random Objects Into A Spinning Turbocharger
Will it boost?
Meet Cleetus McFarland, turbo extraordinaire by way of his C6 Corvette's 88mm turbo. Not contempt with running the quarter-mile in the seven second range, he also put an 850psi shot of nitrous through a turbo keyring.
Not satisfied with that either, he set up his Corvette's turbo with the exhaust pointing towards a target, and decided to see what it can consume without blowing up.
Although his scientific credentials suggested by his lab coat are questionable, it's still fun to watch McFarland (who's real name, fittingly, is Garrett Mitchell) and his crew feed everything from bananas to Twinkies and even breast implants into his Corvette's turbocharger when it's spinning at several hundred RPM.
