A turbocharger is a kind of supercharger for car engines. It is in essence a gas compressor that increases the density of air entering the engine to create more power. The turbocharger is a clever design innovation in that it is driven by the engine's own exhaust gases. The turbocharger usually sits on the front of the main engine block and has its own chamber in which the gasses are compressed. Because of the immense pressures and strains placed on turbochargers, it is important to only fit high quality turbochargers to your car.
More Responsive: In standard applications, it is realistic to double the power of an engine through turbocharging, making vehicles more responsive to drive.
More Economical: Turbochargers recycle the energy produced by automobile engines, transforming more of the fuel energy consumed into power by creating less wasteful heat and friction. As a result, turbocharged engines deliver significant fuel savings over their naturally aspirated counterparts.
Greener: Because a turbocharger delivers more air to the engine, fuel combustion is easier, more thorough and therefore cleaner. Today's turbocharged diesel engines produce 50% less NOx and CO2 emissions than conventional engines. Show Less
