About Turbo Pipe
The XF Jaguar turbo pipe is an important component of the turbocharged engine. The turbo pipe functions to carry the air through the system in a turbo charged engine.
The turbo charger boosts the flow of compressed air and in turn increases the flow of fuel, into the combustion chamber of the engine, improving the performance of the engine, which effectively enables the car to go faster. The turbo charger attaches to the exhaust and the engine and is driven by a turbine powered by gas from the exhaust. The exhaust leaves the engine and enters the housing of the turbine which causes the turbine wheel to rotate. The power of this rotation turns a shaft connected to a compressor, forcing the compressor to spin. As the compressor rotates it sucks in clean air and forces it through into the combustion chamber, providing extra power to the engine. The turbo charger increases the engine's fuel efficiency and provides significantly more power than the engine alone, while helping to reduce CO2 emissions. It has an important part to play, therefore, in the overall performance of the engine, boosting the performance of the engine,enabling it to work as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Connected to the air turbine housing and the turbo intercooler, the metal turbo pipe is able to supply the turbo charger with the air needed to power the engine effectively.
Naturally, very high temperatures are produced as a result of this boosting /turbo charging process leading to eventual wear on the turbo pipe. A malfunctioning turbo pipe could allow air to escape and adversely affect engine power. If the turbo pipe is faulty, the warning light will illuminate on the dashboard indicating there's a fault. Seeking advice from a reputable mechanic is always advisable to ensure the right fault has been found before buying replacement parts. When replacing this part, choosing to install a good quality XF Jaguar turbo pipe will ensure you get a part that fits well works effectively and ultimately lasts longer.
- Jaguar was bought out by Ford in 1990, but they didn't really capitalise on the investment. Eventually, Ford sold Jaguar to the current owners, the Indian company Tata Motors.
- The 2014 Superbowl advert for Jaguar featured Brit actors Ben Kingsley and Mark Strong, with a terrified Tom Hiddlestone hanging out of a helicopter as it flew across London. Not many people know that the driver used for this advert was The Stig (Ben Collins).
- Talk about testing your car! Jaguars are put through a very rigorous climate test, where they are first tested in -40 degrees for twelve hours. Once that's done, the cars are then sprayed with water while standing in a 0-degree wind tunnel. That's why they cope so well with British weather.
- When they first launched in 1922, Jaguar was called the Swallow Sidecar Company. They changed the name in 1945 because of the unfortunate use of the letters 'SS' by Germany in the war.
- Transporting a load of Jaguars isn't easy. When being loaded onto trains, every car is driven by a driver that isn't wearing a seatbelt. Those drivers aren't allowed to wear belts, and they even have to get rid of any metal eyelets on their shoes. This is all to prevent the possibility of scratches, and what's more, the drivers aren't even allowed to touch the outside of the cars!
