Turbo and Superchargers

Parent Category: Fuel and Engines
Turbo and superchargers are engine components that pump pressurized air into the engine via a compressor. Their function is to increase the power generated by the engine by providing it with increased air pressure inside the cylinders.
Yes and no... Yes - it is possible if you use really small turbos... No - it would be a waste of money and because you loose too much flow rate going with too little of turbos you would be limited to a very low gain of power. Yes - you could use 2 turbos on a 4cyl by doing it bi-turbo which...
Yes it does ... these are made for specific engines - engines who by design are different from one car maker to another, so you need the proper one to guarantee that if will fit and line up with the bolt holes and other connections.
yes, actually it does cost about $1000 have fun savin up money!
A pulley on the end of the crankshaft, where you find the harmonic balancer on your vehicle.
Answer . You would have a clearance issue as stated before. Either way your going to have to do electrical and cutting work. . You'll have to make more room whether you turbocharge the motor now or swap the motor with a twin-turbo one.. You'll also either buy a reprogrammable ECU for the twin...
You don't, the oil running through your supercharger or turbocharger (regardless of which you have) is the same oil used to lube your engine so check your dip stick ;). In the case that you need to diagnose your charger, you need to be concerned about any oil pressure regulators on the oil lines...
Turbo diesel - a idesel engine with a turbocharger to increase engine performance. Most of the time used to increase power which reduces fuel economy. In some cases, the gain of power sometimes grants the gain of fuel economy by added exhaust gas back pressure. Back pressure on exhaust increases the...
No, it is different because the Renault 5 gt turbo was made for the exhaust fumes to run through the turbo creating boost. On a non turbo version the piping will be made simply to leave the engine directly out of the exhaust.
Only if you use the Turbo to pre-compress the intake before the supercharger. This would be the closest thing to a compound Turbo application but would be a waste of money as you'd be spending twice the money to do it compared to a MUCH more efficient setup using two turbos, one smaller than the...
You do not necessarily need to do so in most factory applications BUT on after market applications you should do 30 seconds to 3 minutes depending on the build EI size of Turbo(s) *turbos for twin, bi-turbo and compound*. The bigger the engine/Turbo setup the longer you want your timer set to burn...
The purpose of butter fly valve is to maintain one way opening during induction stroke and exhaust stroke.
the 300zx is cheaper to buy a turbo'ed engine and all the managment that goes with it. otherwise you have to buy a differenct ecu and a turbo. modify the block and run oil breathers and all the running gear, intercoolers and sensors.
Cobra mustangs came with the M112 While most recent Roush have the new bigger TVS 2300 If those are the ones your talking about, get the TVS hands down, more efficient, Roush's site says they should be good for 1000hp.
One way to gain a significant amount of horsepower in the 3.8l is to add a supercharger. For example, the RIPP supercharger made for Wranglers with the 3.8l.
In reality, you can do it. . It's a question of either you have enough money and mechanicalskill to make the upgrade correctly or not. . There are many videos over the web, but honnestly, most of themshow a wrong setup. When turbocharging a engine with a carburetor, you will have to putthe turbo...
Super chip is a brand name like , Diablo, banks, etc. Only on old OBD1 car did you actual change a chip on the ECU/PCM circuit board. Cars now a days you just hook up the programmer to the 16 pin/OBD port and change, ignition timing, fuel, boost levels, etc. to gain HP.
is a centrifugal compressor powered by a turbine which is driven by an engine's exhaust gases.
You can get them from any auto parts store, just need to give them the yr/make/and engine. They are screwed into the head.
It installs between the turbo and throttle body in the intake piping. It installs with hoses and clamps. It has a vacuum line that connects to the manifold that open the valve when the throttle closes and vacuum is present in the manifold.
of all the s/chargers i installed in my shop pro charger has the best systems. check superchargers4less.com
modifying or installing an adjustable wastegate.
Just needs to be inspected, every once in awhile, to check for paper/leaves-debris from blocking the air flow through it.
No as long as the hybrid turbo is the right size. You get the turbo that fits the motor.. not the other way around.
If I remember correctly, look under dash on right side of car and reach in and CAREFULLY pull back at the front edge of carpet near console.....it should be right under the edge
Turbo driven engines have more high-speed moving parts and so can be prone to wear and tear more than superchargers.
Answer . Turbokits.com is a good place to start. Or Google search it. Most kits should run between $4k and $10k. It might be worth the extra to get a kit with the intercooler and hoses.
Diesel cars are relatively slow so the turbo give it that much needed kick
Under the dash, near the steering column.
The whistling sound is the turbochargers at work.. The turbines inside the turbos creates the whistling sound as the exhaust gasses pass by each blade of the hot turbine and the cold turbine blades drive air into the engine.
Yes, but 1 turbo is really to small for a 5.0, you will need 2. Also you will need to get a manifold that will fit the turbine mount, shouldn't be a problem for a ford 5.0, look on turbo mustang sites/kits. There are about 5 different turbos that where used on the 5.9 whc1,hx35, hy35, he341, he351,...
Didn't give the year? BUT, For the Normally aspirated 3.8 L36 ZZperformance offers a kit, base cost is $1550 and $300 for them to install, 2-6hr installation time base on your skill level. Stage 1 add 60+hp/60+lb-ft.See link below.
Since it is turbocharged aready, main modifications are to the exhaust, You will need another or new exhaust manifolds(depend on current setup I4,V6,V8). Will also need another wastegate, oil lines for 2nd turbo. Another intake, tube, filter, down pipe, and either a 2 into 1 pipe to connect to your...
The fact that you asked that question is the reason you probably can't. The turbo itself is just one small part of the intake and exhaust systems. They would both need to be modified along with different wiring and a different engine management computer (Fuel injected). If you have a vehicle where...
You measure the wheel size of the turbo. fr example you will get 50mm and this will tell you how big the actual turbo is. you cant really tell by the trim
of course you can i mean the engine bay allow it but you need to install the ECU and engine/injectors/ecu arnes as well and if you ,re going to swap from automatic to manual you'll need the transmission shock too. good luck!
IDK if it will fit, but it did I dont think you could even get that turbo spooled up on a 3.9L engine.
Procharger and vortech make kits, the price is $5,800-$6,400. Vortech has downloadable installation instructions for you to check out.
It depends on the specific car. Some will be undriveable without the turbo, but in any case it will be severely out of tune. With the turbo missing you can expect, at best, reduced performance, reduced fuel economy, and increased emissions.
Here is a link below of a company specializing in blow thru carbs. Their 750cfm carb is good for 1000+hp.
It depends on what you want to spend, is the motor stock and how much do you want to make. Most street kits run 6-10psi, especially if it is an automatic. You can save money a use a turbo from a car that had one from the factory(junkyard turbo). Here are some that would work, and will still work...
not nesscearily but i suggest when you do that your car will be fast n better of quality
Because the exhaust is not cooling enough before its cycled through the turbo which causes the turbo to heat up and turn red.
Yes, you can put a turbo charger on just about any engine.
check oil pressure and oil volume going to turbo make sure the oil return is not clogged are youletting you car idle 10 minutes after every use you cant be running 2 bar of boost and just turn off your engine you need a tubo timer to cool down your turbo or you will fry your seals if you email with...
These BOV's are called super-sequential blow-offs . HKS and Greddy make excellent, top-of-the-line SS-BOV models.
Because of Ring burnt, engine heat-up or loose piston in sleave.
The normal direction of airflow is air filter to turbo, to intercooler, to engine. The normal direction of airflow is air filter to turbo, to intercooler, to engine.
the best way to make sure your diesel starts in extreme cold is purchase a engine block heater unit. there are varietys the best i like are the ones that replace a freeze plug with a heater element. you rig a extension cord through your grill and plug it in to a normal 110 volt receptical starts...
Hi there, . It all depends what model/engine you get. Ive got the 1.6hdi engine (DV6TED4). This engine is used in most fords/masdaz etc. . In the 407 however, this engine is susseptable to turbo failure. Mainly because its always under load. (such a heavy car and such a small engine). My engine has...
They both can make insane amounts of power, but I would say turbo because... 1. The boost on turbo systems can easily be adjusted 2. There are way more sizes avail. to best match the motor 3. Are more economical MPG due to the fact they are load based and don't cause a parasitic load on the motor...
Its a tappet adjustment that to be done for diesel engines to overcome the noisy sound from the engine which get loose by continueously uses of the vehicle .
All turbochargers compress air to increase the volumetric efficiency of an engine.
If it's a 98 diamante, it could very well mean that your o2 sensors are sending a bad reading to your engine. Sometimes it'll send to much fuel & air. Take it to your local parts store and have them hook it to a reader to be sure.
The turbocharger was invented by Swiss engineer Alfred Büchi in 1905.
yes, they both use the same input. HOWEVER, the transmissions are different in length and your rear-crossmember won't line up if swapping them
The two biggest killers are a lack of lubrication (lack of oil or broken down oil) for the bearings and debris coming through or around the air filter. The two biggest killers are a lack of lubrication (lack of oil or broken down oil) for the bearings and debris coming through or around the air...
Diesel engines use propane to go faster, only gas engines use NOS
There are many supercharger kits for the chevy 350, need to search by yr/make/model. Vortech, procharger have centrifugal supercharger setups. B&M, Wiend, edelbrock, magnuson have roots style kits. Kenne bell and whipple have screw type supercharger setups. Just need to decide how much power you...
Boost pressure is the amount of pressure above normal atmospheric pressure the turbo/supercharger is producing. Can be expressed in PSI (US used) or BAR (mainly outside the US). BAR = (boost pressure) * 14.7 (atmospheric pressure) / 14.7 (atmospheric pressure), an example 8psi of boost equals: 14.7...
A turbo uses the exhaust gases to spin a turbine wheel which is connected to the compressor wheel. As it speeds up the compressor wheel draws air in a compresses it in the compressor housing. The pressurized air is forced into the engine, increasing volumetric effiecencies and cylinder pressures...
complicated take it to a shop
With a scan tool with the proper software, or take it to the dealer.
your better off getting awreck some kid couldnt handle and getting a front clip engine trans computers and complete wire harness. there are great bolt on accesory drive superchargers complete with intercoolers injectors pullys and all you need factory off the top of my head ill sayy 15,000---22,000...
Depending on where you live. In most places you just need to get all the modifications checked and get some sort of certificate.
Simply put, a turbocharger uses the exhaust to spin a turbine thuscompressing air which is then forced into the intake. Asupercharger is driven off the engine crankshaft and forces airinto the intake. They both do the same thing but the turbochargeruses the exhaust gases to compress air and the...
check for low alternator charge voltage when heater fan is on if alternator has anything lower then 13.5 volts have alternator load tested.. idead charge voltage is 13.8 to 14.5 volts is alt checks good scan abs codes and see whats up auto computers are very sensitive to voltage loos or overcharging...
Incorrect pump timing, . low compression, . fuel cut solenoid may not be working,
yes, but there's not gains or reason to
it is a power of force because it forces compressed air into the engine!
Really depend on how many miles, how well maintained and how hard were those miles, But in general Yes. only bad diesels are 6.x fords.
46 liters equals - 2807 cuin. If you meant the 4.6 liter mustang motor is 281 cuin.
no 306 is a xud9 te/l and the 406 was a xud9 sd.
It is a gear or chain driven compressor, piston or rotor(like new oil pumps). It is feed fuel by a normal fuel pump at around 43psi and compresses it up to 25,000psi.
It could be a completely different engine; without knowing what engines you're comparing it's hard to say. On a lot of diesels the only differences between power ratings are the fuel system, so it very well could be the fuel rail is the only difference.
hook up a fuel pressure gauge to injector rail measure pressure with engine running,then pull vacuum hose off regulator pressure should jump up about 10 psi. also make sure fuel is not leaking from fitting.this indicates a ruptured diaphragm in regulator, also make sure it holds 18inches of vacuum...
A turbocharger would be more better because you can get more power efficiently than superchargers. Answer Yes turbos are more efficient, but a supercharger will give more low RPM torque which can help a lot for towing, especially at low speeds.
If you just set the can near it, none whatsoever. However, if you put gas in the tank, and run it, it will do things to that motor that would take 3 pages to explain and you still wouldn't understand. If you're trying to destroy someone's truck, this would do it. If it's your truck, don't ask...
Yes it is possible to run a supercharger and turbo on the same engine but the process is very complicated and is very inefficient. As turbos annd superchargers create heat while they work so when you use both, the air going into will become very hot unless you use a very large intercooler. They do...
bearing failure is the most common failure of turbos since there arent many components of a turbo. if there bearings are failing it should be accompanied by a roaring or slapping noise audible to the ear or at least with a stethoscope. in addition, if you remove the induction boot you can spin the...
