Watch a turbocharger crack under the stress of a hydraulic press

All things must end.

There is something soothing about watching a series of objects meet their fate at the hands of a foul-mouthed man from Finland and his hydraulic press. Everything, from a pot of non-newtonian fluid to a small ball bearing, eventually succumbs to the pressure. The occasional explosion of both sparks, curses, and/or understated commentary only serve to enhance the experience.

For this video, the Hydraulic Press Channel has brought in a turbocharger manufactured by Finnish manufacturer Turbotohtori. They even hook up an air line to the inlet to spool the turbo as the press slowly smothers the device. Did it survive? No, of course not. Watch the full video to see the destruction unfold.
