Chevrolet Turbocharger

Chevrolet Turbocharger

Chevrolet turbocharger is a kind of supercharger for the car engine. It is in essence a gas compressor that increases the density of air entering the engine to create more power. The turbo charger is a clever design innovation in that it is driven by the engine's own exhaust gases.

Your Chevrolet turbo will usually sit 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. Chevrolet Turbos deliver more air to the engine so the fuel combustion is easier, more thorough and therefore cleaner.

A turbocharger is a mechanically complex invention. It comprises two fans, attached to either end of a metal shaft, and a compression chamber for gases. The hot exhaust gas from the cylinders drives one of the fans (the turbine), which in turn spins the second fan (the compressor). The compressor forces extra air into the engine’s cylinders (drawn from the car’s air intake). To make the system more efficient, the hot air emitted from the compressor is cooled by a heat exchanger to increase its density before it enters the cylinders, resulting in a faster fuel-combustion rate. This is what generates the extra power for the car’s drive. The magic of the turbocharging system is that all the extra power is recycled power – it is generated by its own exhaust gases – so it comes at no extra running cost.
