Turbochargers are a type of forced air induction system, they compress the air entering the engine. Turbos are powered by the hot exhaust gasses that exit the engine. As the exhaust gasses leave the engine, they pass through the turbo and spin a compressor wheel. This wheel compresses the intake air and forces it into the engine. The advantage of compressing the air entering the engine is that compressed air is denser air, and denser air has more oxygen molecules in it compared to naturally aspirated, uncompressed air. Forcing denser air into a cylinder means that more fuel can be added while keeping the correct fuel air mixture intact. Because of this, you get more power from each explosion in each cylinder. A turbocharged engine produces vastly more power than the same engine naturally aspirated. Turbocharging drastically improves the power-to-weight ratio of an engine, while also decreasing EGT’s significantly.
Installing an aftermarket upgraded turbo offers several crucial advantages. An upgraded turbo is one of the most significant upgrades that you can make to your diesel. Though high end turbos can be expensive, they are one of the most cost effective ways to drastically change the performance of any diesel truck. Aftermarket turbos are available in many different configurations that can be advantageous to your specific needs from your diesel truck. Whether you need better quick spooling, high pressure turbo performance to keep up with your towing needs or more high end power to obliterate the competition, an upgraded turbo can give you everything you need and more. Compound twin turbo systems can also offer the best of both worlds, a smaller, fast spooling turbo for low end power and a large turbo for unbeatable high end power.
