Anyone who doubts the power potential of a well-designed turbo system need only check out the results of the comparison between the four forms of forced induction roots blower, twin-screw blower, centrifugal blower, and turbos run on the same 4. Though catalogs, literature, and Web sites offered by some of the less well-informed supercharger manufacturers may have you believe otherwise, the reality is that no form of mechanically driven supercharger will produce as much absolute power as a proper turbo system. I remember reading literature supplied by one centrifugal supercharger manufacturer that indicated that the excessive backpressure associated with turbos would somehow offset the parasitic losses associated with driving the supercharger. Real-world, unbiased testing performed for this book as well as every SAE paper ever written has proven that with the exception of the positive displacement blowers run at low engine speeds, no supercharger can match the absolute or average power production offered by a turbo system. To think or suggest otherwise amounts to nothing more than marketing hype. While a huge fan and student of all things forced induction, my testing on turbo systems was somewhat limited until I hooked up with Jimmy and Nathan at HP Performance.

History[ edit ] Forced induction dates from the late 19th century, when Gottlieb Daimler patented the technique of using a gear-driven pump to force air into an internal combustion engine in Ships and locomotives equipped with turbocharged diesel engines began appearing in the s. Turbochargers were also used in aviation, most widely used by the United States. The technology was also used in experimental fittings by a number of other manufacturers, notably a variety of experimental inline engine -powered Focke-Wulf Fw prototype models , with some developments for their design coming from the DVL, a predecessor of today's DLR agency , but the need for advanced high-temperature metals in the turbine, that were not readily available for production purposes during wartime, kept them out of widespread use. Turbochargers are widely used in car and commercial vehicles because they allow smaller-capacity engines to have improved fuel economy, reduced emissions, higher power and considerably higher torque. Turbocharging versus supercharging[ edit ] Main article: Supercharger In contrast to turbochargers, superchargers are mechanically driven by the engine.

This is a basic list of parts. The final list will be determined based on engine size, power output, blow-through, fuel injection, or draw-through carbureted, etc. This type of turbo system requires someone who can weld and fabricate and has good working knowledge of engines, fuel systems, and ignition systems i. At Mr Turbo, we do not like to turn down anyone who has a desire to turbo their motorcycle, and we obviously can't produce systems for bikes that we feel will not move the product well, so we offer the Universal Kit. Information is available from our Technical Department to help with not only making a decision on this system, but also some limited help on how to proceed with assembling this system for your particular application.
