What is a turbo?
A turbocharger is basically a pump driven by the exhaust gases passing out of the exhaust manifold . The unit consists of a wheel with vanes – the turbine – that fits inside a housing in the exhaust system . From this turbine a short central drive shaft runs to a similar vaned wheel called the compressor that feeds into the engine’s air intake.
When the exhaust gases flow
from the engine, they spin the turbine, which in turn spins the drive shaft to turn the compressor. So, when the engine is running, the exhaust gases drive the turbine which makes the compressor pump air into the engine.
A fixed amount of fuel is automatically sucked in with the air if the engine has a carburettor. If the engine has fuel injection , the computer control unit is programmed to suit the boost pressures.
The faster the engine is running, or the larger the throttle opening or both, the faster the turbocharger will spin. The faster the turbo spins, the more pressure, or boost it develops and the more air it forces into the engine to create more power.
