As much as your local car club might like you to think it, well, turbocharging the naturally-aspirated car isn’t simple.
There are the lot of different thing you will need to do to add forced induction to the car that didn’t come with it from a factory. Thanks to this neat explainer clip, we learn exactly what you will need to change.
For example, the builder of this wild twin-turbo Chevelle SS drag racer shown above had to worry about cutting giant holes in a hood!
Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained put together the video pointing out all of the modifications you will need to make to your vehicle when preparing to turbocharge it.
These mods aren’t for additional power, and rather to ensure the engine and drivetrain can handle extra boost.
Of course, adding the turbo means you will need to think about compression ratio, ECU mapping, and the fuel delivery.
But you might not realize you will also need to consider your vehicle’s cooling capacity, and if you are really adding the lot of power, your clutch’s ability to get it to a ground.
But those are only the small portion of the items that need addressing when when you slap the turbo on your car. Watch for yourself to learn more.
