Common Turbocharger Damage Causes & Remedies

Turbo DamageTurbochargers are used to optimize combustion and boost a vehicle’s performance. Turbocharged vehicles have an elevated density of air intake, which increases the volumetric efficiency, improves the efficiency of the combustion engine, and increases torque and performance. The construction and function of turbochargers is designed for the service life of the engine. However, high-performance components situated in the exhaust gas system are exposed to multiple risk factors that often contribute to immature failure.

In order for any repairs to be successful, thorough analysis and rectification of the cause must be achieved.

The Promising Future of Turbos

There was an era when different automobile companies were in a race to increase their engine output by increasing the cubic capacity. Soon the market was flooded with cars that boasted 4, 5 or even six litre naturally aspirated engines. This trend became immensely popular and it gave birth to the muscle cars. Although these engines produced astonishing performance figures, but they were highly inefficient when it came to fuel economy.

Advantages, Disadvantages, & the Future of the Turbocharger

Advantages of a Turbo
Turbochargers are often associated with high performance cars, race cars and big diesel engines. More often called a turbo, this is a type of forced induction which uses the exhaust gases to add more air back into the combustion chamber. This leads to a significant increase in power output that does not add too much weight to the engine. Compared to a naturally aspirated engine of the same displacement, a turbocharged engine produces more horsepower.
