Whenever there is a talk about race cars or high-performing sports cars, the topic of turbochargers often comes up. Turbochargers also come on large diesel engines. A turbo can significantly boost an engine’s horsepower without significantly increasing its weight, which is the huge fact that makes turbo so popular!
This article will highlight how a turbocharger increases the power output of an engine while working in extreme operating conditions. We’ll also learn how waste gates, ceramic turbine blades and ball bearings assist turbochargers do their job better. Turbochargers are a kind of forced induction system. They compress the air flowing into the engine. The benefits of compressing the air is that it allows the engine squeeze more air into a cylinder, and more air means that more fuel can be included. Thus what you get is more power from each explosion in each cylinder. A turbocharged engine produces more power overall than the same engine without the charging. This can significantly enhance the power-to-weight ratio for the engine
