What is a Turbocharger?
A turbocharger is a small turbine that sits between the engine and the exhaust. Plumbed to both, as well as the car’s air intake, a turbocharger uses the exhaust gases to spin the turbine which then forces more air into your car’s engine and increases the car’s power. There are four parts that allow a turbocharger to work.
How does a turbocharger work?
The turbocharger on a car applies a very similar principle to a piston engine. It uses the exhaust gas to drive a turbine. This spins an air compressor that pushes extra air (and oxygen) into the cylinders, allowing them to burn more fuel each second.
What is the advantage of turbocharger?
Basically, a turbocharger is connected to an engine to give it more power. This allows smaller engines to put out more horsepower and torque than they ordinarily would. Turbochargers utilize the engine's hot, expelled air to spin the compressor wheel and take in outside air. This reduces the amount of waste produces.
