Stuffing more air and fuel into an engine’s cylinders is a proven way to increase horsepower. Vehicle manufacturers are finding that using forced induction systems in the form of turbochargers and superchargers can allow them to decrease engine size and increase fuel economy, and still provide drivers with the power and performance they want. Most diesel pickups are turbocharged and both turbos and superchargers can be found on performance cars.

A turbocharger consists of a turbine wheel and a compressor wheel that rotate on a common shaft in an aluminum housing. The turbine wheel is plumbed into the exhaust system and exhaust flow spins the turbine blades, which in turn drives the compressor wheel. The compressor section of the turbo is part of the air intake system. Air is drawn through the air filter and intake tube, compressed by the compressor wheel and forced into the intake manifold.

Superchargers have two multi-lobed gear-driven rotors closely meshed inside an aluminum case located on top of the engine. A shaft attached to one of the gears is driven by the engine via a serpentine belt. Air is drawn through the air filter, intake tube and throttle body into the supercharger, and is compressed by the spinning rotor blades and forced into the intake manifold. On most vehicles an intercooler is connected between the air outlet of the turbocharger or supercharger and the intake manifold to cool the intake charge before it enters the engine.

Modern turbochargers and superchargers are much more reliable than the units of decades past, but like any mechanical component, they can wear out after many miles and their lifespan can be shortened from lack of maintenance. Dirt and foreign material can damage compressor blades, so air filters must be changed regularly and the integrity of the air intake system must be maintained. Turbochargers operate at extremely high shaft speeds and temperatures, which is hard on the turbocharger bearings. The bearings can fail due to a lack of oil if the oil level is not maintained or oil that is dirty from neglected oil changes.

Whatever turbocharger or supercharger malfunction you’re experiencing, we have the replacement parts to make things right again without emptying your pockets. You’ll find everything from complete assemblies to pipes, hoses, boost sensors, boost control valves, wastegate solenoids, mounting gaskets and more on our digital shelves. Every replacement unit is disassembled, cleaned, and thoroughly inspected. Any part that does not meet specifications and quality standards is replaced with new, including all bearings and seals. The rotating assemblies are dynamic balanced for proper operation and durability.

    This article will guide you through a generic tune up on most any car or light duty gasoline-powered vehicle built within the last 20 years or so. We will presume that you are tuning up your engine because it has reached the mileage or time point to do so, and that you are NOT performing a tune up to cure an engine performance defect. We make this distinction because not all running/performance issues will be solved via a simple tune up.
  • Auto Repair Parts
    Internal combustion engines are extremely complex and feature a wide array of components that rotate, move up and down, pump, seal, or remain stationary. When repairing or rebuilding your engine, you will come across many different terms when referencing repair manuals and ordering parts. We know it can be confusing, especially when the repair is complex. Even if you are paying a professional to do the work, it’s good to be conversant with the topic. In order to help you understand the terminology of engine components, we’ve created the following glossary, listed in alphabetical order.

Product was great. Have not installed it yet, but should be no problem. Can't beat the price.
