The Audi A4 had the distinction of being the first vehicle from the Volkswagen Group to be powered by the now legendary 1.8 liter 20 valve turbocharged engine which has gone on to be used in nearly every model line from each of Volkswagen’s major brands. If you think about it, there probably isn’t a day that goes by where you don’t see a car powered by one of these engines. In fact, Volkswagen is still producing it to this day while it continues to provide motive power in all of their brands as well as their industrial offerings. There’s even a version that is used in the FIA Formula Two Championship capable of 450hp!

  • 2007-2012 Dodge Ram 6.7L Cummins Turbocharger Problems

    June 29,2016

    Halfway through the 2007 model year, Dodge replaced the venerable 5.9 24v Cummins diesel with a new 6.7 liter model, in order to keep up with the ever-increasing competition from Ford and GM. In addition to a massive power increase, this also brought the Ram up to emissions standards not scheduled to go into effect until 2010, three years later than it was released. With small updates, this engine is still in production in Ram heavy-duty pickups today.

  • The 2016 Honda Civic 1.5 Liter Turbo: Next-Generation Advancement or Four-Wheeled Rolling Grenade?

    June 8,2016

    The 2016 Honda Civic Turbo represents a major change for an established platform. This is the first Civic ever offered in factory trim that also features a boosted engine of any kind. Previous versions of turbocharged or supercharged Civics were only achieved through the aftermarket or Honda’s race teams. This is, in fact, only the second try Honda has made at equipping a production model with a turbocharger, the first being the Acura RDX (more on that from the perspective of a parts professional later). Being only their second attempt, the stats aren’t unimpressive: 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque and 15.3 second quarter mile out of a 1.5 liter turbocharged engine

    How The Government Shutdown Affects The Automotive Industry

    As I am sure most of you know by now, our government shut down at midnight last night due to our elected officials not agreeing on how to fund the government. The last time this happened in 1995, the government was shut down for 21 days. If this government shutdown lasts as long as the one in 1995 we will start seeing larger effects into different parts of our lives. In this entry, I will go ahead and explain some of the ways the automotive industry might be affected.

    The automotive industry depends on the federal government to provide many regulations that consumers use in purchasing decisions. Regulation is very important, the longer this shutdown drags on, the longer the industry will go without important regulations such as fuel economy certification, federal safety recalls, and crash tests. Experts also speculate that if this goes on for too long, the lack of these regulations or the backlog of these tests, could lead to consumer distrust, which might cause car sales to slow.
