The folks at Boost Brothers Garage on YouTube thought it would be a good idea to swap an 07K five-cylinder Volkswagen engine sourced from a junkyard for $300 into this Porsche 944 to see how much power it would make.

Thanks to a Garrett turbocharger and some smart tuning, the car was able to produce 454 horsepower and 356 lb-ft of torque on a dyno. For some context, that's over 70 more horsepower than a new six-cylinder Toyota Supra. And, as a bonus, it sounds delightful.
