Still probably using a turbo charger, as it can compress the same amount of thin air that would be equal to normal air without the turbo, so it will run as if it's a naturally aspirated engine on level ground with no elevation.

That sounds big, as I am not into fast cars. But you have to take into account of air/wind consumption, as o2 only consists of roughly 21% of the air. O2 in good oxydising agent (hence - the name) but derivatives of nitrogen (yeah, you know which) are even more effective.
For a custom made air/wind compressor I would reccomend a Pitot-Prandt pipe style air flow catcher, but that isn't an issue here.

to get to the point, I thumbed down your comment based on that obnoxious noise of a hampster and of inefficiency of that compressor. Although the construction of that piece is sound. You know - up or down vote.

It wasn't on a car, pretty sure it was on a diesel truck, but people would look at it and think, "huh. That + more fuel = fast" and just stick it on there. Well, yeah, but turbo's were originally designed for diesel engine, as at higher speeds, the atmospheric pressure wasn't enough for the engine, so at higher speeds performance went down, so that's why most normal diesel engines are now fitted with a turbo charger.

Well, of course N2O would be more effective, but you're not gonna fit that into a normal street car. It's less than cost effective, and women crash enough as it is, let alone if we let them drive fast cars.

speak in Kg, if you're EU.... but I am impressed with a fact that these things go in a car as I am a chemical technologist/engineer. And that thing is a wind turbine - only that it provides extra O2 in engine for more efficient fuel burning..... but it's not a clever design for that purpose

Over 20KG, since I am EU.

Well, a turbo spins by exhaust gasses. The exhaust gasses spin the turbine which in turn spins the compressor wheel as they're on the same shaft. It doesn't blow air into the engine, it compresses it, thus allowing more air to be fit into the combustion chamber during compression stroke of the engine, and more air+more fuel = bigger bang which = into more power. When you're running a high powered car, a small turbo would run inefficiently, as the smaller turbo doesn't push as much air, and tends to die out when you enter midrange revs. My turbo pushes 7 psi of boost normally, but by turning a valve it can push 24psi of boost easily and turns my little car into a rocket designed to kill you.

Some people drop turbos that size for their street legal Supra's or Skyline's or GTR's. Two in the case of the GTR.

I've seen even bigger ones than that. Lifted it, weighed over 50lbs easy. Came off a diesel engine.

And yeah, of course not normal cars. But you'd be surprised just how big some cars turbos are. I mean, I drive a car with a 1.7L turbo diesel. Relatively small turbo for what it is, but don't think it's abnormal that people switch it out with that from a 5 series BMW

Oh holy fuck, Crazy Frog. That's a trip down memory lane. Just not a very good one.

Well, yeah, a drag car would have a turbo that big, and you know, diesel engines.

Some people drop turbos that size for their street legal Supra's or Skyline's or GTR's. Two in the case of the GTR.

I've seen even bigger ones than that. Lifted it, weighed over 50lbs easy. Came off a diesel engine.

speak in Kg, if you're EU.... but I am impressed with a fact that these things go in a car as I am a chemical technologist/engineer. And that thing is a wind turbine - only that it provides extra O2 in engine for more efficient fuel burning..... but it's not a clever design for that purpose

Over 20KG, since I am EU.

Well, a turbo spins by exhaust gasses. The exhaust gasses spin the turbine which in turn spins the compressor wheel as they're on the same shaft. It doesn't blow air into the engine, it compresses it, thus allowing more air to be fit into the combustion chamber during compression stroke of the engine, and more air+more fuel = bigger bang which = into more power. When you're running a high powered car, a small turbo would run inefficiently, as the smaller turbo doesn't push as much air, and tends to die out when you enter midrange revs. My turbo pushes 7 psi of boost normally, but by turning a valve it can push 24psi of boost easily and turns my little car into a rocket designed to kill you.

That sounds big, as I am not into fast cars. But you have to take into account of air/wind consumption, as o2 only consists of roughly 21% of the air. O2 in good oxydising agent (hence - the name) but derivatives of nitrogen (yeah, you know which) are even more effective.
For a custom made air/wind compressor I would reccomend a Pitot-Prandt pipe style air flow catcher, but that isn't an issue here.

to get to the point, I thumbed down your comment based on that obnoxious noise of a hampster and of inefficiency of that compressor. Although the construction of that piece is sound. You know - up or down vote.

It wasn't on a car, pretty sure it was on a diesel truck, but people would look at it and think, "huh. That + more fuel = fast" and just stick it on there. Well, yeah, but turbo's were originally designed for diesel engine, as at higher speeds, the atmospheric pressure wasn't enough for the engine, so at higher speeds performance went down, so that's why most normal diesel engines are now fitted with a turbo charger.

Well, of course N2O would be more effective, but you're not gonna fit that into a normal street car. It's less than cost effective, and women crash enough as it is, let alone if we let them drive fast cars.

hehehe, at least we agree on that
But I wonder how they're dealing with it on high altitudes, as ciucad de mexico (estimatin around 2000m) since air is thicker.

Still probably using a turbo charger, as it can compress the same amount of thin air that would be equal to normal air without the turbo, so it will run as if it's a naturally aspirated engine on level ground with no elevation.

I'm gonna research it tomorrow on how after work, and on engine materials...

Thnx, you've given me a new thing to look into. I have to go now, see you around FJ.

Ok. But just because somebody has it rough doesn't mean you can't complain or try to improve your situation.
#229 - anon (07/19/2015) [-]
And thats why you educate youself and dont work in mcdees the rest of your life
#232 - TurtleOnItsBack (07/19/2015) [-]
I don't know about Greece, but education here isn't free. And with paying for rent, food, healthcare, car insurance, and a whole lot of other bullshit, it just isn't an option for a lot of people.

Not when the FJ store opens. It'll work with points.

Hasn't admin been saying something about the store for over a year though?
And besides, I just come here to look at funny pictures and fap.

I do the same really. Give them to someone else.
