So teach me some turbo

Post by wooderson » January 14th, 2009, 6:57 pm

I know the general principle of turbos. But I really dont know anything about which turbos are what and when certain turbos are used on certain applications.

Anyone care to give me turbos 101.


Ive kicked the idea around of doing a turbo on my chevelle. Not many people doing it but the ones who have have seen some crazy numbers

Yes anthony. Check out that site, and look at the 101 102 and 103 links.

I'll be happy to answer any specific questions to the best of my ability. Its a pretty big subject to cover generally though.

Turbo's are pretty much universal. You can put a Gt42R on anything from a 2.0 4g63, to a Ls1. THe powerband will vary greatly. The one you pick just depends on the goal you have and how you want the car to behave.

Self Cooling Intercooler
Is there such a thing? What I am thinking of is something like like air/water intercooler but instead of water passing thru it, the turbo sucks air thru it, then feeds the charge thru the side where it normally would on an air water intercooler. Thus cooling itself

All I have to say is that TUNING is one of the MOST IMPORTANT things for a turbo'd car or truck. Good Tune will last a long time if you treat your car good and also keep up the maintence, bad tune will blow shit up!!!! Also going cheap on parts isn't always a good time with turbo related items...there is a reason why its cheap and that usally is not good. Some of these things i learned the hard way. Just my :twocents:
You are still missed...

OP, read the book Maximum Boost by corky bell cover to cover.

As for oil, any good quality synthetic will be good.
