The only thing I know about turo is that you have to let the engine idle for 3 to 5 minute before turning off your car. That's why so many people driving with turbo's end up trashing them before their 10 year life span is up.

i dont know much either, all i know is that turbo lags at low rpms and spools up around 3000 or so..depends how big they are..as far as new turbos, they have little or less lag..and maybe no lag at all, kinda like superchargers..anyway, there's a lot to talk about turbos, try searching the forum..lots of info here thumbsup

yeah, that's why you need a turbo timer..it allows your turbo to cool down cool

And with our luck they'll forget to make one for our Celicas or wait another 5 years before putting one out. wtf

ok thye already have turbos for all types of celis, gt and gts

the turbo compresses air by using a spool to pull air in and push it out towards the Intake. the turbo is spun by exhaust gasses, so the stronger the exhaust pulse ie, faster it is running, the more the turbo pressurises the air going into the Intake. the new turbos have variable pitch vanes that allow the turbo to spool up faster given the same exhaust speed. also know that anything that pressurises the Intake air will also increase the temperature of the air in the Intake, which is why they have air to air and air to water intercoolers.

I'm not trying to be rude at all, but do you understand what a turbo is? It's not like nitrous where it's off until you hit a button or anything. It's something that you add to your car that has a continuous effect, like an Intake or an exhaust. Once the turbo spools up, you have power until the revs go down and it has to get up to speed again.

yeah, you don't push a button or flip a switch to active your turbo. It's self spooled and you'll feel the pull at a certain rpm (your choice i think) thumbsup
