Q: Effect of turbo

asked by on

If extra turbo is installed how it effects on engine cc

A turbo-charger doesn’t actually add any volume to the engine. The best way to explain how a turbo works is, you must first understand that an engine, in its basic form, is just an air pump. The work that an automotive engine does relies on its ability to move air through it. To do this, air is drawn into the engine by the downward movement of the piston in the cylinder, a metered amount of fuel is added to the air, the air is compressed when the piston moves upwards, and the ignition provides the spark to light the compressed air/fuel mixture to start the whole process over again. Where the turbo comes into play is, instead of counting on the piston to create a vacuum to draw air into the cylinder, it uses exhaust gas to spin the impeller, and force a larger volume of air into the cylinders. The larger volume of air means that more fuel can be added, and more power/torque can be created. So basically, it just allows for more air/fuel to be consumed per revolution, than would normally be consumed without the use of the turbo.
