The Turbocharger - A Vital Part of the Engine Intake and Exhaust Systems 700534

The turbocharger is a component common to both the intake and exhaust systems of internal combustion engines. The manner in which it is applied can have a major effect on the performance and durability of the engine, as well as influence the size and selection of other components in the system.
A well-matched engine-turbocharger combination can be relatively insensitive to changes in environmental temperature and pressure, whereas a poorly matched combination may suffer extreme losses in performance and life. Some of the more important factors in matching a turbocharger to an engine are discussed with emphasis on how development of the turbocharger characteristics has contributed to the highly satisfactory performance being obtained from turbocharged engines today.
