Turbocharging enjoys tremendous popularity today. More and more drivers decide to convert their non-turbo cars. And such decisions really are wise. A turbocharger allows to increase car’s horsepower greatly without replacing an engine with the bigger one. And this is profitable due to several reasons: first of all, the weight of the car remains really the same (it does not increase because of a bigger engine), then (that it is even more important) the fuel consumption remains at the same level, you do not have to feed the hungry engine by the enormous volumes of fuel. Also, a turbocharger is perfect for diesel engines, since they are famous for their poor performance. But everything changes when they are turbocharged. And now it becomes completely clear why the turbos are extremely popular.
But there is another side of the coin about which we are going to speak in this article. Today turbocharging is so popular that there a question gets up if all the expenses are justified and a driver really needs a turbocharged vehicle or this is just fashion following.
Only think about most of the drivers. It is clear that most of them are the megalopolises’ citizens, since the biggest concentration of vehicles that ends in traffic jams is in the big cities. Then think about what are conditions these “the happiest citizens of big cities” drive in general. Most of them use their beloved vehicles for the route of “house-to-office”. So, let’s think if really they need a turbo vehicle, if they spend half of his lives in the heavy jams? I think, not really. More probably, those that strive for installing the largest possible turbochargers want to impress their friends or be as cool as those drivers who drive the last released models they have just bought. Whatever is the reason, it is only a expensive reasonless whim. Not more.
So, having realized this, most of the drivers should not confront a reality and on the contrary think carefully if they really need expensive turbocharger installed. If you live in a big city and have seen races only for the TV, it is better to shy away from turbocharging the vehicle, since this cannot justify most of the unreasonable expectations. If you still want to improve your car, better to think about technologies of fuel saving – they are very important today, when the prices of the fuel are not going to fall down at all. Or you can improve car handling due to changing the shock absorbers, wheels or even the suspension, if you have some money to spend. All these changes will reflect positively on your car and you will obtain more confidence while driving your vehicle.
