Rich Benoit, an American auto enthusiast, spoke on episode #1849 of the Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) and described how he converted an all-electric Tesla into a powerful V8 engine, leaving Joe Rogan dumbfounded.

Benoit informed the podcast host that the company’s tightened control over all of its spare components was what ultimately motivated him to make the changes.

The auto enthusiast revealed how he used the Tesla’s accessory mode to deceive the vehicle into accepting the newly fitted V8 in response to Rogan’s inquiry on how he merged the new engine with the Tesla’s native system:

Every automobile has a feature known as an accessory mode. The engine and drive rails aren’t running, but the accessories are. After installing the V8, the Tesla basically thinks that it is now in accessory mode since all of its accessories are functional. The V-8 engine takes over since the final button that was required to activate the driving rails and start the vehicle is no longer there.

Benoit added that the automobile had a separate haltech system for the new engine to the obviously fanatical podcast host. He informed Rogan that even if the native Tesla systems failed, the Tesla would still function.

About the differences between a Tesla and the Porsche Taycan, Matt Farah speaks with Joe Rogan.

American YouTuber and auto enthusiast Matt Farah told Joe Rogan during his visit on JRE episode #1394 that the Porsche Taycan outperformed Tesla vehicles in terms of heat control.

Farah said that Porsche had more in-depth expertise of heat management because to its extensive racing background. He said that Porsche had a thermal system that was integrated for the brakes, batteries, motors, and cabins.

Farah asserts that the more effective technique can direct heat or cold to the areas that need it:

The thermal management is now the main point of difference between the Porsche and Telsa. Heat and cool management is going in the right direction… Taycan features a particularly unique thermal management system that combines the heat in the cabin, the brakes, the batteries, and the motors into one system. Therefore, it happens often that one system requires heat while the other need cooling. Anywhere in the automobile that requires it, they can transmit heat or cold.
