Why Turbos Are The Best – /ENGINEERED
This great video on an explanation of why turbos are the best type of supercharging option out there, we have the one and only Gale Banks of BANKS Engineering to explain the history of the naturally aspirated engine and why supercharging an engine anyway possible will benefit the horsepower output. He also explains about using what he calls a “parasitic” device on an engine to get boost isn’t the best way to go when a turbo takes the unused exhaust gasses and turns them back into power for the engine.
I’m really excited about this video because he show the twin turbo 1989 Trans Am GTA that he set speed records with at the Bonneville Salt Flats back in the 90’s. I use to read about this car in Motor Trend back in the day and just think that turbos were for people that had tons of money to put in a car and figure all that stuff out. Wow, how things have changed these days and most everybody with a little help from the internet can install a turbo and wire up fuel injection in there own garage and come out with a ton of horsepower for cheap! Turbos can be use for all applications of racing or street use and is on diesel truck, speed boats, and cars that need to make better fuel efficiency.
