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 if boost is too high, fuel air ratio is not correct or the engines mechaincal parts are not up to the power level.
You can, but it would be difficult due to placement, I wouldpersonally throw a CX Racing CT26 Turbo in there, it kicks a hellof a lot more and easily fits to the car. Hope this helps! P.S. TheCX turbo runs for around 385, so I would not charge you if you wereto need assistance.
supercharger is belt driven and turbo is exhaust driven. supercharger boost is based on rpm and turbo boost is based on load and exhaust volume.
The turbo increases the pressure of the air entering the engine, so that there is more oxygen inside the cylinder when the spark plug ignites it - and the piston is pushed down with more force therefore delivering more power. But when you take your foot off the accelerator, if there is no blow-off...
Could be the bearings/pulley. until you fix the issue you should remove the charger belt, so it doesn't get worse (blow the supercharger).
No such item -- "relay sensor". However, relays themselves are located: 1. in the Relay Center -- behind the glove box (open glove box, pull rear wall tab toward you while continue opening: dump glove box contents on floor). Behind and to the right, at kick panel. 2. in the engine compartment, at...
I would say that for more power and efficiency, you should go with the twin turbo.
Both twin turbo AND Twin superchargered, you could..but it would be a complicated installation. Also it would be a very expensive to do, and not worth it...horsepower wise. Volkswagen did have a car with both a supercharger and a turbo. The real reason to run twin - anything... Is that there isn't...
A few years, and Emissions standards. MEMS3 is remap-able and MEMS2 is not. However MEMS2 gets more gains from Induction and Exhaust mods than MEMS3 does without a map.
Answer . Boost is positive pressure in the manifold, so you only see boost when you give the gas pedal heavy load. The best way to check the boost pressure is to connect a vacuum hose to a boost gauge. This will tell you the exact boost pressure when you are in wide open throttle.
supercharger is belt/gear driven of the motor, the turbocharger is driven by exhaust gases from the exhaust.
It is inside of the FUEL TANK. Must remove the tank or raise the bed up to remove the pump from the top of the tank.
In the engine compartment at the outlet of the exhaust manifold.
In the case of engines, turbo is used as a contracted name for the turbo charger.
no...... you tear the engine up
The Turbo charger function is to provide extra air. also to add or to increase the efficiency of air in the cylinder to provides a high pressure to meet the combustion power and air-fuel mixture.
Direct is designed to low emissions and should allow for higher performance due to better atomization and a more accurate air/fuel mixture.
Yes, but with today technology, it would be a waste of money(not needed/expensive.)
No it is not needed, yes usually a performance intake adds power, the real question is why would you run 1psi?
obviously its the same 4g63 engine
You would be better off getting an actual SC motor from a parts car than trying to swap an SC onto a standard 3.8L LX. The SC motor is designed for the boost application, as it has forged crankshaft, rods, and better pistons to handle the boost. A normal 3.8L would not handle the boost you can get...
When it comes to performance, yes.
Answer . yes you can as long as the lug pattern is right and you have tires to fit them.
It probably wwon't run correctly, but if it did, it lose 40%-60% depending on the model/amount of boost.
Answer . \nAlot think about what your parents pay then triple it
Look under the hood, if it has a supercharger you'll see it, SC thunderbirds have badging on the fenders saying it also.
the exhaust spins a turbine to make it spin
sea foam.......from parts source
Turbo charged engines must be idled down to allow the turbo to spool down and even out the temperature in the turbo this is done either by using oil cooling or the engine coolant or both in combination.The engine needs to be running to circulate the oil and coolant if you shut the engine down...
Turbos use hot exhaust gases to spin the turbine wheel when the engine is under extreme loads(think a big truck going up a steep hill)the exhaust temperatures rise which makes the turbo work harder these raised exhaust temps (on long haul trucks max exhaust temp before the engine must be down rated...
Answer . NO! Definitely NOT! At least not by a considerable amount. A turbo charged car performs best when removing the entire exhaust system. Although I can’t advice you to do that..
hi there iv got 1990 mx6 turbo running 8psi with a ihi vj11 bhb?5 turbo hope this helps ya
Most street kits come with everything you need, If you are staying in the 6-8psi area. Depending on the car in question, most parts/modifications needed have to do with the fuel systems(map sensor/ injectiors and/or a fuel pump). Most new stock car internals can handle 6-10psi. Compression ratio and...
Anything can be done, I haven't seen any single kits for that body. You Would probably have to get a custom cover over pipe made to run a single. From engine bay pics., I think you would have to relocate the coolant expansion tank and position the single turbo in that area. Since their was a turbo...
No, there are different bolt patterns for mounting the turbo on theexhaust manifold. T3,T4, T6, KKK turbos can be different. Downpipes can be bolted o or connected with v-clamps.
Adding a turbo to a v8 that already has a supercharger, isn't worthit/cost effective. If you are removing the supercharger andconverting it to turbocharged then yes. The engine is built for theload/power and is the best candidate for turbocharging.
Yes- Whipple, magnuson, magna, vortech, pro charger, edelbrock allmake a supercharger kit for the ls7.
Yes, if it is from the same family of motor(head boltspacing/head gaskets/bore spacing/etc.). but the compression ratiowill more than likely go up. Also the turbo head might(should) havelarge cooling passages, so might have detonation issues. Need tocheck manifolds, sensorsto see if they would work.
Yes, adding a turbo to a N/A engine can, it the cooling system can't handle the extra heat the extra power will generate. It alos can on a factory turbo car, if the boost is turned up too high, causing excessive exhaust backpressure/egt.
Where to buy: . Nowhere yet. TRD has not officially released it yet. Once it is released you will be able to buy from any Toyota Dealer.
It refers to the throws of the crankshaft/distance the pistonmoves. It usually is compared to the bore of the engine. An examplea 302 4"bore x 3"stroke is a short stroke motor, by comparison a5.4L ford v8 3.552" bore x 4.165" stroke.
I would install a turbo, due to the availability different turbo kits, I think only Jackson racing is the only company advertising a supercharger for the prelude. Turbo kit has room to grow, easier to modify, better fuel economy, etc.
A turbo is an exhaust gas powered supercharger.It uses the expansion of waste gas(exhaust) to spin a turbine wheel (the hotter the exhaust gases the faster they will expand and in turn the faster the turbine wheel will spin) that is connected by a shaft to an impeller wheel that sucks in and...
Need to know year/make/model to let you know if there are any kitsavail. for your application, but there are superchargers for 3L v6fords, mazda 6, jaguar is currently running sc 3L v6 cars, audi 30v v6.
it could be a few things that cause this either it is your piston rings have worn enough that combustion pressure is being pushed into the sump which is in turn pushing oil past the seals in the upper engine or your turbo has blown a seal and is pumping oil into the intake air charge do a...
no. the v8 is an over head cam design. the v6 is pushrod. the will never fit
A supercharger runs off the engines power directly. : A turbo has two fans one that takes power from the engines exhaust.
You can put a Turbo on your 1992 engine. You will need to purchasea air intake Turbo modification kit.

A turbo timer is always a safe bet on any turbo engine. It lets the engine idle after you remove the key and lock the doors. Doing this lets the engine oil cool the bearings in the turbo which will extend the live of the turbo. Also keeping your oil changed like is outlined in your owners manuel...
I guess you could, but what would it do. A wastegate controls the amount of boost and with no turbo there is no boost to control.
Hahn racecraft, RCC and velocity all make turbo kits for GSXR1000'S, I did check ok their kits/pics. Email any questions youhave.
Ha ha yes if you have a lot of money and you have no fear of your driveshafts disintegrating when you put the pedal to the metal. My opinon get her chipped upgrade the ecu set of iridium plugs and to top it all of a front mount intercooler this will be cheaper and up your horsies and top end...
A new one? assuming you aready have one that I guess isn't workingproperly. A rebuild kit or $$$ for a replacement.
They are similar, kerosene is better in cold weather and is addedto diesel to make the winter blends. Kerosene burns cleaner, butdiesel has more btu per gallon.
Yes it will I had a tensioner pulley give out on mine that had to be replaced due to having an incorrect belt, and incorrect routing. I ran for over a week while I waited for the proper belt, and replacement pulley to get to me. The Supercharger does indeed make a difference in power, but if you...
Why not? Its mostly a question for ones self. If you are a big engine person that wants muscle and doesn't mind the massive fuel consumption then a small engine with a turbo is a bad idea. But if you don't like big engines that waste a lot of gas but hate the lack of power in a little 4 cylinder...
The 1962 F-85 Oldsmobile Jetfire, had a turbocharged aluminum 215ciV8 Porsche started in 1975 and SAAB in 1978
In the exhaust, post O2 sensor, yes. Drag racers have been doingthis to free up hp for years at the track. Using it on the streetcan get you a ticket due to noise restraints, plus by-passing theCatalytic converter is emission illegal.
yes, but it would be a complete waste of money to do both
the exhaust valve will always be smaller as the piston is forcing the combusted gases out. The intake valves have to be bigger as the piston is only drawing the mixture in through sucktion.
twin = two bi = two Answer: no difference
You shouldn't. The wastegate eliminates the extra boost when it's not needed.
Depends on what size turbo you looking at
There are 2 different short/long blocks. Thier compression,piston/ rods are not the same. check link below.
A 7-8psi intercooled kit, can add 40-50% more hp and toque.
Answer . \nCall your local GM dealer and ask the parts department personel the question. You may have to refer to the "service parts identification" sticker located in your glove box. This sticker will have a list of 3 letter/number combination codes on it. At least 2 of these codes that start...
As much as the waste gate is set at, size of the turbo, size anda/r of the turbine housing. "How much you can run" depends on... the strength of the engine(forged internals?) compression ratio if iron or alum. head head gasket material/ head bolts or studs Intercooled/alcohol injected the octance...
There is only one way. Find the leak and repair whatever is causing the leak. Bad gasket, seal, or broken part, whatever.
The waste gate controls the boost coming out of a turbo by bleedingoff exhaust gases/pressure to the turbo's turbine. By control theamount of gases/pressure the turbine see's, it controls the turbo'sspeed/pressure.
yes i want to reprogram my ECU of my bike
To increase the power output of an engine when needed, it does this by increasing volumetric efficience of the engine. The turbo compressies the incoming air and forcing it into the cylinders at above normal atmospheric pressure. Under boost the motor acts like it is bigger than it really is.....
The term "Turbofan" is actually quite broad, but can be broken down into two categories…high and low bypass. The question you are really trying to ask is which engine type (high bypass or low bypass) turbofan engine is more efficient? High bypass engines are used on most commercial airplanes...
Check the oil level, right away. The light can come on if it is very low and you brake. Oil sloshes forward when braking. And if it this low, you can damage your engine. It is common on these cars for the oil pressure sensor to fail and fill the electrical connector with oil.
In most cases you use some type of manual boost controller between the waste-gate and a good boost source. Or you can use some type of electronic boost controller but this can be expensive.
Yes the larger the engine or smaller the A/R the faster the turbowill spool for a given turbo. Given more displacement you can spoolup as fast/faster with a bigger A/R housing than a smaller engineand reduce backpressure, freeing up horsepower. A basic rule ofthumb I've heard from manufacturers: (on...
Any engine with a turbo/turboes installed. They increase power byforcing air/fuel into the engine.
Yes. However, the GT35 may make more usable power and be more drivable, depending on the engine size.
How do you turn off the electronic engine management systems light indicator on the dash
No, only a certain range(size) of turbo will work(efficiently) fora 1.6 diesel at the rpm range, boost throttle response you want.Link below is to one of the best turbo calculators, IMHO.
........Turbo means the engine has a so called air pump hooked to it, as u step on the gas the exhaust that comes out the tailpipe first passes through the turbo and the turbo forces air into your engine thus it also sucks in more fuel at the same time....this can mean a drastic increase in...
I have been running this engine in my car for 3 years now, makesthe Fiero what it should have been. Scary fast and completlyreliable if done right. There are several good references on the web to tell you how andsell you the parts.
poor pick up not running smoothly
