How a turbo system works

Engine power is proportional to the amount of air and fuel that can get into the cylinders. All things being equal, larger engines flow more air and as such will produce more power. If we want our small engine to perform like a big engine, or simply make our bigger engine produce more power, our ultimate objective is to draw more air into the cylinder. By installing a Garrett turbocharger, the power and performance of an engine can be dramatically increased.

So how does a turbocharger get more air into the engine?

1. Compressor Inlet
2. Compressor Discharge
3. Charge air cooler (CAC)
4. Intake Valve
5. Exhaust Valve
6. Turbine Inlet
7. Turbine Discharge
