Turbos & Components

Why use a Turbo?

 

Stringent emissions regulations throughout the world are challenging automobile manufacturers to create engines that meet the needs of the environment whilst still producing vehicles that are enjoyable to drive. Turbochargers meet that challenge and deliver significant benefits to end users.

 

 

More Responsive:

In standard applications, it is realistic to double the power of a given engine through turbocharging, making vehicles more responsive to drive. Turbochargers also prevent the loss of power at high altitudes, thus providing significant advantages to turbocharged trucks and off-road machinery.

 
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.

 
More Enjoyable:

Turbochargers deliver greater torque, which, in turn, translates into improved performance on the road, making driving a real pleasure.

 

How to Identify a Turbo ?

Correctly identifying the turbo means you'll get the right replacement first time, saving you time, money and hassle. Look for the label or nameplate on the turbo's outer casing.
