  Howstuffworks "How Turbochargers Work"
In order to achieve this boost, the turbocharger uses the exhaust flow from the engine to spin a turbine, which in turn spins an air pump.
Where the turbocharger is located in the car.
The typical boost provided by a turbocharger is 6 to 8 pounds per square inch (psi).

  Turbocharger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Turbochargers are a true gas compressor, as the gas (air) is compressed inside of the turbocharger.
Turbochargers are typically 70-85% efficient, at peak efficiency, due to having to heat the air during the compression.
Turbochargers with foil bearings are in development which eliminates the need for bearing cooling or oil delivery systems, thereby eliminating the most common cause of failure, while also significantly reducing turbo lag.

 Engines: Turbocharger   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A turbocharger is an exhaust gas driven compressor used in internal-combustion engines to increase the power output of the engine by increasing the mass of oxygen entering the engine.
The term supercharger is very often used when referring to a mechanically driven turbocharger, which is most often driven from the engine's crankshaft by means of a belt (otherwise, and in many aircraft engines, by a geartrain), whereas a turbocharger is exhaust-driven, the name turbocharger being a contraction of the earlier "turbosupercharger".
Sequential turbochargers are usually much more complicated than single or twin-turbocharger systems because they require what amounts to three sets of pipes-intake and wastegate pipes for the two turbochargers as well as valves to control the direction of the exhaust gases.

 Turbocharger Information
A turbocharged engine may also have reduced power, but the reduction will be less dramatic because the thinner air is easier for the turbocharger to pump.
If a turbocharger with too much boost is added to a fuel-injected car, the system may not provide enough fuel -- either the software programmed into the controller will not allow it, or the pump and injectors are not capable of supplying it.
A small turbocharger will provide boost more quickly and at lower engine speeds, but may not be able to provide much boost at higher engine speeds when a really large volume of air is going into the engine.

 Turbocharger Histroy   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Turbochargers were used sparingly on aircraft in World War I, but their development occurred on a widening scale in the 1930's and 1940's - first in Europe and then in the United States.
To better understand turbocharging, thought must be given to engine operation and the relative pressures and flow rates in the cylinders and manifolds during the four cycle process.
Because the turbocharger delivers more air to the engine, combustion of the fuel is more complete, cleaner, and takes place within the engine cylinders where its work is accomplished.

 TurboCharger
Some turbocharged vehicles have too small a wastegate and under sustained WOT the boost actually increases.
It was the first Merkur (or turbocharged car of any kind) I had driven any distance, so I was completely unfamiliar with expected turbo behavior and boost levels.
If operated at or beyond this line, the compressor stalls and surges in and out of stall until external changes are imposed to keep the compressor away from this zone.

The oil is then scavenged from the turbocharger via an electric oil pump which returns the oil to the engines valve cover through another long length of tubing which again cools down the turbo-heated oil before entering the engine.
With the turbocharger located where it is exposed to ambient air rather than trapped under the hood, the turbocharger quickly cools down as well so cool down times after runs don't need to be 5 to 10 minutes.
Secondly, since the turbocharger is driven by exhaust gasses, the more air the turbocharger puts into the engine, the more exhaust gasses the engine produces, which in turn produces more turbocharger RPM's and air discharge or "Boost".

 Ram Turbocharger Diagnostics
Remember, what is heard as turbocharger noise may not be caused by a noisy turbocharger.
This condition is most often the result of a loose clamp/hose at the turbocharger compressor outlet, charge air cooler (CAC) inlet, CAC outlet or at the intake manifold.
Generally turbocharger replacement will be related to turbine shaft failures or turbocharger housing seal leaks.

 How Supercharger & Turbocharger work
All superchargers, except turbochargers, are driven via a pulley that is connected either to the engine's accessory belt, or to its own belt that goes directly to a crank pulley.
Technically, a turbocharger IS a type of supercharger - one that is driven by exhaust gasses rather than from a pulley that draws power from the engine's crank.
Because the turbocharger relies on a technology substantially different from the three traditional supercharger technologies discussed above, it is beyond the scope of this article.

 Project Sidewinder | Banks Power: Holset Turbochargers’HY-55 VGTturbocharger was selected by Gale Banks ...
The variable geometry of the design should allow the Sidewinder Project Dakota to achieve the 210 MPH target speed and be driven to Bonneville towing a trailer with race parts and equipment.
In simple terms, the variable geometry technology helps the turbocharger to maximize and totally control the boost pressure over the widest range of engine operating speed as possible.
A Holset HY40 turbocharger that does not have VGT is also being evaluated for possible street use on the Sidewinder, although the VGT HY55 may provide all the flexibility that is needed for both competition and street use.

 Turbocharger Basics
A turbocharger is an air pump that is driven by exhaust gas.
Factory turbos are usually sized for around-town driving, not top-speed autobahn use, so they're smaller turbochargers with low lag and modest maximum boost levels.
The 95-99 turbo cars have very small turbochargers, but also exhibit almost no "turbo lag." The 90-94 cars had a bigger turbo, with a bit more lag, but still very fast spool-up.

 APS D/R Series Ball Bearing Turbocharger   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Whilst turbochargers began to be applied to passenger cars in the late 1970's in response to the energy crisis, the first generation passenger car turbochargers were derived directly from commercial diesel engines.
By encasing the turbocharger bearings in intricate water passages, engine coolant is used to significantly reduce turbocharger bearing temperatures in order to eliminate the coking and lacquering issues that fouled old fashioned turbocharger bearings.
The APS water cooled turbocharger on the other hand remains cooler than the coking threshold at all times and the bearing temperature increase through heat soak immediately after shutdown is reduced drastically.

 Enjoy The Drive -- How Turbochargers Work
"What a turbocharger does is to make the air/fuel mixture more combustible by fitting more air into the engine's chambers--which, in turn, creates more power and torque when the piston is forced downward by the resulting explosion," notes Garrett.
Hot exhaust gases leaving the engine after combustion are routed directly to the turbine wheel side of the turbocharger to make it rotate.
That turbine wheel is connected by a shaft to a compressor wheel.

 Turbocharger Replacement
Replacing the turbocharger on a 951 is not extremely difficult.
If you are installing a turbocharger other than a factory replacement (K26-6 or K26-8) there are some things which you should know.
Be sure to install a new o-ring at the turbocharger flange and new seal rings for the banjo bolt at the balance shaft housing.

 Turbocharger Installation
If the turbocharger stay bracket was removed, I would leave it off, and install it later, but if it was never removed just leave it as is.
If the turbocharger stay was removed, now is the time to install it.
Since the exhaust manifold is very loosely installed, and the turbocharger stay is loosely installed, it can be slightly moved around so as to get enough clearance to install the dump pipe.

 1.000 horsepower E36 M3 Turbocharger Kit for S50B30 & S50B32   (Site not responding. Last check: )
On some turbocharged cars boost pressure is reduced most of the time and on certain occasions boost pressure is increased via an electronic boost controller, such as on Mitsubishi EVO 8s and Subaru Imprezas.
As there is not enough space for locating a single big turbocharger on the right side of the engine, we had one chance: installing the turbocharger on the left side of the egine.
Any turbocharger kit is successful as long as top quality hardware is used and as long as top quality software is used.

 Howstuffworks "Inside a Turbocharger"
This serves two purposes: It cools the shaft and some of the other turbocharger parts, and it allows the shaft to spin without much friction.
With air being pumped into the cylinders under pressure by the turbocharger, and then being further compressed by the piston (see How Car Engines Work for a demonstration), there is more danger of knock.
Cars with turbochargers often need to run on higher octane fuel to avoid knock.
