Supercharger vs Turbo

Supercharger vs Turbo

Dave1/18/2018Saturn Sky

This is one of the questions that come up a lot, the old turbo vs. supercharger debate. Technically, anything that forces more air into the engine then it would have ingested naturally aspirated is a supercharger. Superchargers that are driven off of exhaust gas through a turbine are technically called turbine superchargers, but more commonly just called turbos. All of the forced induction systems have the primary goal of forcing a higher mass of air into the cylinder, which when fueled correctly, generates higher cylinder pressures and more torque on the crank, which makes tires go up in smoke faster

High Flow Catalytic Converters and the P0420 engine code

High Flow Catalytic Converters and the P0420 engine code One of the more popular modifications that we sell and install here at DDMWorks is a high flow catalytic converter. Although newer cars produced in the last 10 years have had more efficient and better flowing catalytic converters then in the past, aftermarket catalytic converters can typically still outflow them. This better exhaust flow can yield more power from the engine and also on turbo cars, the benefit of faster response from the turbo.
