Good introduction to turbocharged engine design considerations. I read some reviews that this book contains too much engineering math. It's "techy". Well those folks that fear a high school calculator and rather squander their money on questionable upgrades for a dyno queen needn't buy this book. Go with what your mechanic guy told you. Those that aspire to develop a upgraded turbo system with confidence of achieving a well-balanced result this is the book for you.
In fact I believe this book isn't techy enough as much of the empirical date upon which these methods are based are not well documented. Nevertheless deriving everything down to bare bones fundamentals is not the intent of the book. It's intended to provide you with a solid foundation on how to develop or refine a turbo system. Especially interesting for me was learning why turbo charging doesn't significantly challenge a non-turbocharged engine internals.
Increasing an engine output by hp doesn't much hurt the engine? That's not obvious. And comforting learning what needs to be done to build in reliability -- something most gearheads aren't too interested in.
Some folks complain that the book is old fashioned because it referenced turbo carburatored systems. That's not old fashioned, that's being thorough in accommodating those folks interested in safely turbocharging their beloved naturally aspirated car.
I'm not one of them but I respect the effort of Corky and hobbyists going down this path. At least this book gives you the tools to make necessary comparisons to the usually less attractive option of re-engining the whole car. Don't need it? Don't read it. This book nicely compliments Graham Bell's Forced Induction book. It's not a substitute. I strongly recommend! Just what I was looking for.
Corky has put together a collection of formulas and uncommon sense that is needed to design and build turbo systems. I love it. I used this book to create an Excel worksheet full of needed design formulas. I can now make tradeoffs and design decisions before I build it, and I have a much better chance of getting what I expect, without a bunch of cut and try and try again attempts.
Corky's book will be a huge help to me, and I imagine it will be to you as well. This may not be the book for someone who is afraid of math, or who does not want to understand something. This book is not a cookbook approach, rather, it is a chef school delivering the reader with enough information to "cook up" his own turbo creation. If you want the ability and confidence to design and build system that work, and that work the first time, this book will help you. This is a great way to get into the world of turbocharging, almost a must-read in fact.
Though much of the information is dated, a turbocharger is still a turbocharger and this will give you a very good idea of where to start. It does not make specific recommendations for engines or combinations, but rather gives you a good starting knowledge upon which you can build. If you're thinking about adding a "hairdryer" to your engine, this is the place to start. This book does a great job of guiding you through the working concepts of a turbo system from start to finish, providing a baseline understanding of all of the related concepts and design aspects.
It lies in the often deserted landscape between a high level overview of a subject, and a dry technical engineering manual. It can easily be read for pleasure if you're someone who's technically inclined and interested in the automotive world, even if you never plan on owning or modifying a turbocharged car. This has long been known as a great work in the auto world, and while some aspects may be a bit dated, the theory is as true today as it ever was.
One person found this helpful. Solid book for getting your facts straight if you are thinking about going turbo or already own one. I've owned and driven a turbo designed car for many years. I've read a number of articles here and there and had a number of conversations, all aimed at getting an understanding of how my car worked.
This book really is a concise, yet thorough, explanation of a turbo-charged engine. A discussion of the competing dynamics that are at work and what one can do to influence those dynamics. The author has provided a ton of math, so the technically inclined can use the formulas and explanations to guide their own tuning. But the book is also practical in it's explanations, not just theoretical.
I drive an older Saab and I came away from the book with a real appreciation for how much great science went into the design of my car. See all reviews from the United States.
