is true that it gives more power with the same fuel?
Im sure it uses much much more fuel :S

#1 not exactly.

With a turbocharger, you (of course) will get more Horse-power, which for the same speed, let's say 100Km/h (~60Mph) a car with a turbocharger, requires less effort from the motor than a car without a turbocharger, that have to push more (higher RPM = more fuel consumption (and not only)).

#1 MORE air into the engine + MORE fuel to keep the air/fuel ratio correct = MORE power

The turbo uses the expanding gasses from the exhaust to push more air into the combustion chamber, so it works more efficient when you push the throttle to the limit. at normal speed, it makes the air-intake more accurate. At low speed it can even cause a lower airflow into the engine, thats why high performance engine stall, when you do not hit the throttle properly.

them latencies and automatic gear shifting, thrill.

with a turbo you can increase the yield of the engine so with the same load output it can uses a little less fuel
but that's not true at all engine speed and load.

Internal combustion engines are just air pumps....the more air you can pack into them the more fuel you can add for a more powerful burn which equals lots more horsepower.

It's amazing what a modern turbo can do. A decent sized diesel truck (lorry) can have enough power to operate normally even with a mere 2-liter engine. This enables pretty impressive fuel savings. I guess the downside is that having two turbos makes an engine more unreliable, and obviously more expensive to build or repair.

nice...didnt know that turbochargers were for efficiency and not just for fancy cars wasting fuel...:P

I wonder how many they will be building when electric rules. 8-):squirrel:
