turbo

The turbo has been around for almost as long as engines themselves. Yet turbos are not in the least outdated. The turbo works as an air compressor for the engine. At 14.5 psi the turbo has doubled the amount of air going into a normally aspirated engine. The more air you can put into an engine, the more power potential the engine has. The turbo has two sides to it, one that compresses the air and the side that the exhaust gases pass through. The exhaust must pass by a cone shaped “wheel” of blades to exit the engine. As it does this it spins the wheel very fast. The exhaust side is connected by a shaft that runs to the air inlet side. This shaft is lubricated by oil that passes between the two housings. As the exhaust side spins, it turns a similar looking “wheel” called the impeller on the intake side. This side of the turbo is called the compressor.

Intercooler

Category: Auto Tuning


Intercoolers have been used on turbocharged and supercharged engines for quite some time now. When used on a supercharged engine they are often called aftercoolers. Turbos are the most common usage for intercoolers though. Any engine that uses an air compressing device such as superchargers and turbos can benefit from intercoolers. When the air gets compressed it can heat up dramatically, up to 300 degrees F. This dramatically reduces the compressed air density and limits the maximum boost. The high intake temperatures can increase the chance of detonation in the engine, causing major engine damage. An intercooler can fix this problem.
