Expert Turbo Installations

What does it take to be an expert in Turbo's

Sometimes we have to wonder why anyone is trying to make N/A power anymore. We concede that there are a zillion racing rules to prevent power-adders from dominating, and turbos look kinda complicated. But you'll need to get over it. We realized this after getting hooked on watching those turbo small-block guys on YouTube beat the hell out of Vipers and any sportbike jockey willing to risk the road rash. Forget the big cam and loose converter; you won't need 'em. You don't even have to wonder how to stash a big-block under the hood or where to cut the blower hole. All you need is a turbo or two to make obscene power, and we're going to show you how to get one.

What You Need To Install Turbo

First: The CompressorBig or small? On the pressure or cold side of the turbo system is the compressor. As spent air and fuel exits the exhaust port, it spins the exhaust turbine wheel which spins the turboshaft that is connected to the compressor wheel. The size and pitch of the wheel and the shape of the housing determine where the combination of air flow and boost pressure is most efficient. The trick is to select the compressor size that delivers that efficiency in a usable rev range. A smaller compressor wheel will be more efficient lower in the rpm range but will create more heat at Higher Engine Speeds. It will also restrict the flow at higher rpms. Too large a compressor will cause boost lag and possible compressor surge in the lower rpm range and be the most efficient at higher engine speeds. Since the compressor wheel predicts the horsepower needed from the turbine, it is very important to get the sizes correct. Too small a turbine spools fast but restricts at the top end. Too large a turbine can't deliver enough power to the compressor at the low end.
