Why Should I Get A Turbocharger?
A turbocharger allows you to get more power out of the same engine. Powered by the engine’s exhaust, turbochargers force more air (including oxygen) into the cylinders. This increase in air consequently allows for fuel to burn more quickly which increases power. These are great if you want the power of an engine with more cylinders, but don’t want the weight of a bigger engine.
What About “Turbo Lag”?
It used to be that cars would experience a big “turbo lag”. This term is for when the turbocharger would all of a sudden take effect, causing a dramatic lurch forward. If you are accelerating at a normal rate with new turbochargers, you won’t experience that jolt thrusting you to the back of your seat.
The technology has come a long way, so the only way to get that jolt is stomping on the gas (maybe fun, but bad for fuel efficiency). Since the turbocharger is powered by exhaust, there is still a short “lag” before the exhaust fumes kick in. The difference is that now the effects are much more gradual.
