Honda Car, a subsidiary of Honda Motor Company (NYSE: HMC), is equipping its new 1-litre turbo petrol engine with BorgWarner's Compact Wastegate Turbocharger.
At fixed torque output conditions, however, this effect may be reduced depending upon the throttle, turbocharger wastegate, and variable valve actuation strategies being employed.
The new wheel loaders also feature a wastegate turbocharger (WGT) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) with a diesel exhaust flued.
The exhaust note has been tuned for a raucous effect and this combined with the wastegate sound effects means that you won't miss an approaching 4C.
It was a fixing within the wastegate mechanism of the turbocharger that failed (for Massa)," said head of performance engineering Rob Smedley.
Tom |finished by the end of the day's third stage, his engine was misfiring and a failing turbocharger wastegate actuator was diagnosed as the problem.
Optimizing the flow path of the twin-scroll turbocharger brought a 20%/o improvement in low-end torque, while switching to an electronic wastegate actuator improves boost control.
Cooper Standard products, including exhaust gas recirculation modules, electronic coolant pumps and valves, electronic wastegate actuators and electronic throttle bodies, as well as related assets from operations in North America, Germany, France and the Czech Republic along with certain engineering and other resources in North America and Germany are intended to transfer to existing HVCC locations over the next several months as a part of the transaction.
This exhaust note, another focus of the engineering team, was achieved by adding a tuned exhaust to a complex web of equal length manifolds to provide the evocative Ferrari sound even with the turbos, the latter almost unnoticeable other than some wastegate chatter as you change up at the 7,500 redline [grin].
La conversion consistio en la adicion de un carburador de biogas para la mezcla de aire-combustible, la reduccion de la relacion de compresion de 16:1 a 8:1 mediante la aplicacion de un separador en la cabeza del cilindro, la sustitucion del sistema de inyeccion de combustible por un sistema de encendido por chispa y la modificacion de la valvula wastegate del turbo cargador para regularla presion de sobrealimentacion.
I don't know if it increases the power at all but you can hear the turbocharger whining and the valve in the wastegate popping off excess boost.
