A turbocharger is an extraordinary piece of work, about which we would like to tell you something more. Every engine provides a certain power. In an internal combustion engine, this power can be obtained thanks to a combination of fuel, oxygen and the ignition temperature. By changing any of these three elements, the power of the engine can change. If more power is needed, one should have more fuel and oxygen, which leads to a larger cylinder capacity that makes the engine heavier, larger and more expensive. This is not really desirable considering the severe demands of emission, the higher fuel consumption of a larger cylinder capacity and the higher costs in production. A turbocharger can offer you the solution to this problem.
There is a lot to tell about the turbo and its technology. Turbo’s Hoet has bundled the entire story into a Turbo manual. In this manual you can read all about the workings of a turbocharger. Manual will also help you in making the right diagnosis in case of damage in the turbocharger.
