Homemade Jet Engine Built From…A Turbo? As one of the YouTube commenters on this video puts it, this is why women live longer than men. Those long hours in the garage can sometimes yield some questionable but cool results. With this video, we get a quick inside look at a jet engine that appears to have been made in the comfort of one’s own garage using nothing more then some materials found within an arm’s reach and a turbo. We watch and listen as the turbo aided engine spools up and spits fire in a situation that seems to be pretty volatile. That part definitely makes it a lot more fun to watch. We’re kind of interested to see what this engine ends up powering. Check out the homemade machine in action In the video below and tell us what you think of the project. Where do you think this powerplant will end up?
