How to add a turbo to a non turbo car.

Adding a turbo or supercharger is a fairly complex modification so we’ll cover the basics of adding a turbo upgrade in this article.

In computer games we just tick a box, and within seconds our car is fully turbocharged and running much faster. In the real world things are very different.


Twin scroll turbos

We look at the advantages of twin scroll turbos, discuss how they work and how to set them up. People have used twin turbos in the past to address many of the problems you hit with a single turbo and the twin scroll turbo offers a neat drop in upgrade and provides many advantages.


Wastegate and Blow off valves

We look at wastegates vs Bovs and explain the differences between them. Find out where the wastegate and bov goes and what they do in our informative article. We find that many people are confused by the two devices and see the terms wrongly used.


Anti lag systems

We look at Anti lag systems in cars and how these keep the turbo spinning ready to provide boost from low RPM speeds. When you lift off the throttle the engine power cuts and the turbo starts to spool down.

From this low spool state there is a delay while the turbo spins up again before it can provide any useful boost. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of ALS and look at alternative options.
