High-Boost and Two-Stage Turbo Power Systems
The latest regulations for reducing emissions and raising gas mileage have again put car designers into a race to reduce, reduce, and reduce. Engines and power potential are out front in design centers, with research dollars going to miniaturization of turbochargers and overall engine displacement. One major focus is downsizing the internal combustion engine, mainly from six to four cylinders. In order to compensate for the drop in power and torque, car companies are adding turbochargers on engines that did not use them as standard equipment in the past.
