Yesterday’s turbo lag was eliminated thanks to years of development and a bit of clever engineering.
It is estimated that by 2022, 50% or more of vehicles sold in the U.S. will have one or more turbochargers under the hood.
How does a turbocharger work? Let’s talk about it in simple terms. This video is sponsored by Standard Motor Products.
Turbocharger kits come with many different parts that all require attention when buying – quality matters.
New, no-core turbochargers reduce returns, inspections and inventory, according to SMP.
The two most important parameters to look at are the desired boost pressure and actual boost pressure during a test drive.
This turbocharger allows manufacturers to develop a low-emissions engine with excellent performance.
Whether it’s a diesel or gas engine, the turbocharger will have a wastegate. This video is sponsored by MAHLE.
A turbocharger is a complex unit with precisely matched components.

They are most vulnerable to lubrication-related issues (e.g., poor quality oil, not changing the oil often enough, dirty oil, low oil level or low oil pressure), but turbos can suffer other complications as well.
Turbochargers are great for adding power to any gas or diesel-powered engine, but are especially useful in small displacement engines. The boost to airflow that a turbocharger provides increases the breathing efficiency of the engine for more horsepower and torque.
