Do You Need Turbocharger Replacement?

Some of the most common reasons behind turbocharger failure include lack of lubrication, sucking in foreign objects, over-speeding & fatigue, along with general age & wear. Some common signs that you are experiencing turbo failure include the following: 


Loss Of Power & Acceleration

This should feel obvious as your turbos is designed to reach top speeds quickly. If that isn’t happening, get it checked out.


Check Engine Light

There are a number of reasons this light comes on. One of which is issues with your turbo. Have Pyle diagnose the problem.


Burning Oil (Smell)

An oil leak in the turbocharger is a sign of a gradually failing part. If there is any oil in the down-pipe it is something to get checked.


Whining Turbo

As a turbo begins to fail you may start to hear a loud, whining noise that will continue to worsen.


Smokey Exhaust

Oil will enter the exhaust on turbos with worn seals and cracks. This results in a distinct bluish grey smoke.


Boost Gauge Malfunction

When you accelerate you should see a responsive boost gauge representing your thrust. If that isn’t reading properly, come see us.

How does a turbocharger work?

A turbocharger, in simple terms, functions as an air pump. It works by taking in air at ambient pressures, also known as atmospheric pressure, and compressing it to a higher pressure. This high-pressure air is then passed into the engine via the inlet valves. This mechanism has been prevalently employed in diesel engines of cars and vans as a means to enhance performance. However, with the continuous tightening of emission control regulations, there is a noticeable shift towards the implementation of turbochargers in production petrol engines.

Why turbocharge?

The introduction of diesel engines marked a significant shift towards the quest for compact yet powerful engines. Today, turbocharged cars are answering this call, offering enhanced speed, power, and handling that far outstrip their naturally aspirated counterparts. The turbocharger’s role is pivotal in this revolution—by increasing the engine’s power output by around 30%, it provides an excellent engine response and reliable reserves of power as and when required. Beyond the raw performance benefits, there is a profound impact on efficiency. The improved power-to-weight ratio means the same size engine delivers more power, reducing the need for weighty vehicles to carry typical loads. Moreover, the rise of turbochargers also addresses contemporary environmental concerns, such as lead pollution, and offers economical benefits for users. Thus, the turbocharger emerges as a significant player in the automotive industry, melding power, efficiency, and environmental consciousness into one dynamic package.

Should I supercharge or turbocharge, to boost my engine?

The age-old question and debate in the automotive aftermarket: supercharging or turbocharging? Which method is the most effective for enhancing engine performance? The answer isn’t straightforward, but let’s dive into some characteristics that favor turbochargers as an influential and cost-efficient power boost for your engine.

Turbochargers exhibit remarkable versatility, suitable for both mild street applications and intense drag racing events. When correctly paired, a turbocharger can deliver excellent responsiveness and the ability to run boost levels that will challenge your driving skills.

Lag, often associated with turbochargers, has significantly diminished with the advent of modern GT-series high-flow wheels. These wheels, smaller than ever, decrease inertia and, combined with the ball bearing system, offer a throttle response that needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated. Plus, the compact size of a turbocharger allows for a wide range of installation options.

When it comes to efficiency, turbochargers reign supreme. They harness energy typically wasted through the exhaust, whereas superchargers suffer from high parasitic drag as they derive power from the crankshaft directly. The contemporary GT-series compressor and turbine aerodynamics from Garrett push the boundaries for stage efficiency and flow range.

In terms of durability, the simplicity of a turbocharger’s design — consisting only of a rotating assembly and lacking pulleys, belts, or geared transmissions — ensures fewer potential points of failure.

In conclusion, in this comparison of power enhancements, turbochargers take the win!
