  Auto info - Turbo Charger Works   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
A turbo is a basic "air pump" that pushes a volume of air into the engine, which increases the power output.
This turbo is driven by a turbine in the exhaust system, connected by a direct shaft to an impeller in the intake system.
One of the most common causes for turbo failure is a lack of lubrication, or abrasive material in the oil supply.

 Turbo Basics - What Is A Turbocharger?
A turbo charger is basically a device that uses exhaust gasses produced by the engine to blow air back into the engine.
The turbo charger, or "turbo", is mounted directly to the exhaust manifold, where exhaust gasses pass over a turbine impeller that is attached to a short shaft.
Since the intake manifolds on the early Turbo I engines were so close to the turbo, an anti-swirl fin had to be installed in the turbo outlet duct to stop this air motion from effecting the flow characteristics of the intake manifold.

Transient situation may be calculated, where the acceleration of the turbo shaft is evaluated, as the user may enter different start up conditions for the turbocharger in terms of initial gas state conditions at compressor and turbine ports and in terms of initial turbo shaft speed.
The displayed diagram plots the pressure time histories for the turbo charged engine running at 4000 rpm and where the load pressure is controlled to be 2.0 bar.
The diagram indicates, that the turbo charger reaches, in the case where the engine is running at 8000 rpm, its maximum allowed speed of 250.000 rpm and then stays at this level.

Turbo Lag was really the biggest problem preventing the early turbo cars from being accepted as practical.
For a view on how difficult a Turbo car can be look at some reviews of early 911 turbos, which still have a reputation for wild behaviour when the boost arrives.
NB: The early 911 turbo are still regarded as wild on off beasts despite the attention of the finest German brain power.

 Ultimatecarpage.com forums - Turbo Charger Question
Why is it advised for cars with turbo chargers to let the engine idle for a couple of minutes before switching it off.
No he is right i have seen some turbo cars which have had the engine on for a while after you take the switch out, some electrical system (Turbo Timer as pmurf125 mentioned) which keeps the engine running for a while and turns it off itself, (the actual engine, not a fan).
As the turbo slows down and cools you are pupming oil through the bearing as normal, but now the oil gets a chance to build the necessary 'cushioin' for the bearing to come to rest.

 MVRIA - Media:Storybook-Turbo Charger
The turbo charger is used to pressurise the incoming fuel and air, and this forces more air-fuel mixture into the engine.
A turbo charged engine must have clean oil and most manufacturers recommend that the oil and filter be changed twice as often as normal.
Before fitting a turbo charger, boosting pressure, or carrying out modifications to an the engine, such as lowering the compression ratio, motorists should write to the vehicle manufacturer for advice.

The car was brilliantly packaged too and paved the way for a simply magnificent 'Turbo Era' in the automotive world.
Swedish giant Saab took its cue from this, and its ensuing 900 series was one of the most characteristic turbo cars of its time.
Turbo engines were banned in Formula One too with the idea of restricting the performance of the cars (and thereby making them safer too).

 Turbo charger   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
Turbo charges and super charges are add on’s that car manufacturers use to get more power and performance out of their cars.
One way to decrease turbo lag is to reduce the inertia of the rotating parts, mainly by reducing their weight, allowing the turbine and compressor to accelerate quicker, and start providing boost earlier.
This helps the turbocharger to accelerate more quickly, further reducing turbo lag, but this addition is more likely be used in a larger turbocharger than a smaller one.

 Get Here Your Khaos Super Turbo Charger by Pablo Planas   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
Technically, Khaos Super Turbo Charger is an air-regulating device which introduces the right amount of additional air to the engine to obtain the proper air-fuel ratio for better combustion.
Khaos Super Turbo Charger will regulate the air entering the engine during idling close to the ideal fuel ratio (14.7lb) for efficient burning.
The device will then augment the necessary air needed, due to the inefficiency of the sensors and motorized valve controllers to comprehend the excessive and unusual variability of incoming streams of data which, at some point, feedbacks could not be processed immediately by the microprocessor.

This gives a "Turbo lag" effect at low to moderate RPM, and then a burst of power as the RPM reaches red line.
A Supercharger on the other hand needs no exhaust modifications, does not generate additional heat under the hood (so to speak)unlike the turbo, bolts on easily (therefore can be be removed quickly for a warranty claim if the engine blows) and costs $4,995 USD parts only or under $6,000.00 USD installed with parts.

 Re: Replacing Turbo Charger
Anyway since your turbo is not bad, why worry about replacing it.
When I bought my 83 three years ago it had 113k on the turbo, I knew that the turbo was basically shot then, but the car has an excellent body, is a two door, and was cheap, so I bought it anyway.
It had been leaking, noisy and losing power for about a year, when it really bit the dust at 134k on 2/12/98 on the way to work by making an awful groaning noise under boost.

No, it came with a 60 trim, just measure the inder and you'll see, it has a 1.8x" inducer, the super 60 has a 1.9" inducer and the regular 2.367" exducer, the super 60 compressor wheel is made by turbonetics.
turbo g60, i think the super 60 is a little late boostin unless you can build your set up to spool it up a little faster then itd be great.
Either way the turbo is a great match for 15-17psi on a g60 motor.
