The 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 turbo pipe will ensure you get a part that fits well works effectively and ultimately lasts longer.
