Turbochargers

A Turbocharger is an air compressor that is powered from an internal combustion engine’s exhaust and is used to increase the pressure or density of the air being provided to the engine. Since more air is being forced into the combustion chamber more fuel can be added and the result in an increase in engine power. Another benefit of a turbocharger other than increased power is ability to optimize engine performance in high-altitude environments. At higher altitudes, internal combustion engines perform below optimal operating parameters because of the lower air pressure and less oxygen present.  Turbochargers and/or superchargers can be used to combat this issue.

Pros:

•             Significant increase in horsepower.

•             Power vs size: allows for smaller engine displacements to produce much more power relative to their size.

•             Better fuel economy: smaller engines use less fuel to idle, and have less rotational and reciprocating mass, which improves fuel economy.

•             Higher efficiency: turbochargers run off energy that is typically lost in naturally-aspirated and supercharged engines (exhaust gases), thus the recovery of this energy improves the overall efficiency of the engine.

Cons:

•             Turbo lag: turbochargers, especially large turbochargers, take time to spool up and provide useful boost. Though there have been advancements for electrically aided turbos, that would use an electric motor to spool up the turbo at lower engine speeds. This provides the turbo with useful boost until the exhaust gases have built up enough pressure to power the turbo. This also helps eliminate power surge

•             Power surge: in some turbocharger applications, especially with larger turbos, reaching the boost threshold can provide an almost instantaneous surge in power, which could compromise tyre traction or cause some instability of the car.

•             Boost threshold: for traditional turbochargers, they are often sized for a certain RPM range where the exhaust gas flow is adequate to provide additional boost for the engine. They typically do not operate across as wide an RPM range as superchargers.

•             Oil requirement: turbochargers get very hot and often tap into the engine’s oil supply. This calls for additional plumbing, and is more demanding on the engine oil. Superchargers typically do not require engine oil lubrication
