READ THE SPEED

Super Street - - Tech -

One lim­i­ta­tion of a tur­bocharger is that it can only spin so fast be­fore parts be­gin to fail. Typ­i­cally, when this hap­pens the blades of the tur­bine and the com­pres­sor be­gin to break away from their hub, re­sult­ing in what is known as “burst.” Nat­u­rally, all of Gar­rett con­sumer tur­bos are burst con­tain­ment tested to en­sure that if such a fail­ure oc­curred, the tur­bine and com­pres­sor hous­ings would con­tain the bro­ken wheel pieces. One way to en­sure that your en­gine man­age­ment cal­i­bra­tions stay within the op­ti­mal op­er­at­ing range is to in­stall the op­tional G-se­ries shaft speed sen­sor. The com­pres­sor hous­ing comes with a ma­chined speed sen­sor port pre­set to the proper height. By mon­i­tor­ing and log­ging this sen­sor, the en­gine man­age­ment sys­tem can be op­ti­mized within the tur­bocharger’s op­er­at­ing pa­ram­e­ters.
