Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
How to Turbo - Part 1
After buying a Euro car last episode, Marty discovers he has not yet found
his perfect vehicle... In this extended episode, we reveal what he got, and
show how to make it faster.

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
Formula One V6 turbo: 2014 Rules Explained
Transforming Formula One: 2014 Rules Explained: CGI Clip
A new clip from Red Bull sees Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel explain
the 2014 Formula One regulations -- which are arguably the most complex the
sport has ever seen.
At the start, thousands of car parts simultaneously assemble around Dan to
form the RB10.
As Dan races to catch up Seb in his RB9, the World Champion's car becomes
transparent while travelling at full speed. The film then presents a visual
sequence that shows the 2014 regulation changes taking shape and coming to
life, as Seb's car transforms into an RB10.
As well as providing information on the new technical changes for 2014, the
clip also presents a unique view of the technology at work inside this
year's Formula One cars.

VW TSI ENGINE ANIMATION
Following the success of its TDI and FSI engines, Volkswagen is launching
the latest in a line of pioneering inventions with the introduction of TSI
FSI uses the direct injection of petrol into the combustion chamber to
improve efficiency and hence reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Taking
this further, TSI uses -- for the first time ever -- an FSI engine which is
then dual-charged through a combination of an engine driven Supercharger and an Exhaust gas turbocharger arranged in series.
The driving characteristics of the new TSI engine are improved over those
of the current FSI unit. The belt-driven Supercharger operates at the lower engine speeds,
with the turbocharger coming in as
engine speed increases. The result of this is excellent driveability and
performance throughout the range with no turbo lag and high maximum torque.
Key to the TSI's success is that direct injection allows an abnormally high
compression ratio of 10:1 to be used in conjunction with high maximum Boost pressure of up to 2.5 bar
absolute. This enables the relatively small engine to use very high
gearing to provide exceptional fuel efficiency for a petrol engine,
particularly at motorway cruising speeds. As an additional bonus, the TSI
engine provides driver enjoyment, producing high power and torque across a
rev range from 1,000 to 6,500 rpm.
The new TSI engine has a capacity of 1.4-litres (1,390 cc) and produces
either 140 or 170 PS. The 170 PS version has the same peak power as a
conventional 2.3-litre petrol unit but with 20 per cent lower fuel
onsumption, returning 38.2 mpg on the combined cycle. It also produces
impressive torque of 177 lbs ft (240 Nm) from 1,750 through to 4,500 rpm.
All TSI engines drive through a manual six-speed gearbox. A DSG automatic
option is also available with the 170 PS engine. This will be offered later
in the year with the 140 PS unit.
TSI technology has already received international acclaim, having been
named Best New Engine of 2006 in the International Engine of the Year
Awards. It also won the 1-litre to 1.4-litre category.

MONSTER TURBO 1200hp 1G Eagle Talon
One of the craziest AWD builds we've seen yet showed up at Street Car
Takeover OKC and put on a show! Making it all the way to the finals, even
while down on power, Darren Thomas made some badass passes in this 1G DESM,
as deep as the 5.60's range in the 1/8 and the car typically is in the 5.40
E/T's. This car is no joke!
We hope to see it back out again once the car is all sorted out!
