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.
I am not an expert But lemme talk what I know.
Turbo charging is possible in petrol Cars I would say, any petrol engine can be turbo charged theoratically I am not going to copy paste from any knowledge base or make my statements systematic.
However, you will get a rough idea of what i am talking about. U can even turbo charge your maruti with EMS and Fuel injection. Couple of things which you would require First of all U need to know the amount of air been pumped into ur engine and based on the math u need to choose a turbo charger.
Small increase in power can be gained without much modifications but huge gains require lotsa home work to be done. I am gonna state a small increase in power with a boost of less that 7 PSI.
There is typically four main ports on a turbo. Two for turbo chargin intake and two for turning the turbine Exhaust. Hope you can imagine how it looks. Now Once u know the turbo, u need to setup the intake and exhaust ports on your engine since these require major modification.
Even Causes detonation coz the air burns with the fuel sometimes in the valve chamber. Well the exhaust from the engine must be coupled through the turbo exhaust port so and from the out of the turbo port to the down pipe or the cat back exhaust.
Wastegate and BOV's are used to control turbo chargind to a certain extend. Wastegates lets the turbo charged air flow out when there is excess boost located on the turbo charger itself.
BOV, a necessary evil, pumps out the air when there is excess turbo and the intake port on the engine closes, due to shifting of gears and the accelarator being cut off. These things make the whislting sound. However the BOV keeps the turbo spooling so that, there is no damage done and the turbo is still spooled up and has the charge ready to be delivered.
Now you might thinkjust implement this and everything is fine I dont think so Most of the ECU understand and know that there is only a certain amount of air that need to be pumped in at a certain RPM and throttle.
When it sense more Oxygen by the sensor, based on the programming of each ECU the engine might not work at all. So this all boils down to ECU Flashing and reprogramming. Wat about the addional fuel to the fuel injector, which means a different fuel pump and might require a piggy back module on the ECU to time that.
I don think i made any sense.
Now everything is caliberated and tuned and tested on a Dyno High end turbo charging requires Electronic Boost control or manual boost control to make the car usable on a daily usage. Sorry if i sounded like an idiot.Jun 21, · To understand why petrol engines cannot be turbocharged, you must understand the concept of a turbocharger.
A turbocharger utilizes energy of the exhaust energy, agreed! However, it utilizes pressure energy and NOT heat energy. Jun 21, · Turbocharging of petrol engines? To understand why petrol engines cannot be turbocharged, you must understand the concept of a turbocharger. A turbocharger utilizes energy of the exhaust energy, agreed!
However, it utilizes pressure energy and NOT heat energy. A turbocharger consists of two parts or compartments. In petrol engine turbocharger applications, boost pressure is limited to keep the entire engine system, including the turbocharger, inside its thermal and mechanical design operating range.
Over-boosting an engine frequently causes damage to the engine in a variety of ways including pre-ignition, overheating, and over-stressing the engine's. Oct 27, · Pros: Increased horsepower: adding a supercharger to any engine is a quick solution to boosting power.
No lag: the supercharger’s biggest advantage over a turbocharger Reviews: Using the science of compressor maps and some idea of the size and rpm range of your engine, you can add virtually any turbo to any engine.
The trick is the availability of the maps and the A/R. A diesel engine relies on the heat of compression to ignite the fuel mixture rather than a spark plug in a “petrol” motor. a turbo charger is needed to force the air into the combustion chamber, though not all diesel engines have turbos, some are still naturally aspirated.
a diesel engine, is that, an engine. gasoline or petrol are motors.
