The heavy duty diesel engine market is changing. B.M.E.P. levels are rising, requiring higher pressure ratios and service overhaul lives are being extended. The demands made on the turbocharger manufacturer are, therefore, becoming greater, with improvements in performance, response, reliability and durability being required.
