How does a turbocharger work?
The main benefit of installing a turbo is, of course, more power and better performance. The turbo increases the amount of air that enters the engine. It is driven by the engine’s crankshaft through a gear train and an overriding clutch, delivering aspiration for combustion. After combustion is achieved and exhaust gases get up the correct temperature, the overriding clutch extricates the turbocharger from the gear train and the turbo-compressor is operated solely by the turbine which is propelled by the exhaust gases.
What kinds of performance gains can I expect after installing my turbocharger?
A larger turbo will provide more air, which in turn keeps the engine cool resulting in more power, torque and a better running engine. The more air your engine gets, the better it will perform and extend the life of you truck. More air has always equaled more power and that hasn’t changed.
