"Turbo: Real World High-Performance Turbocharger Systems," to be released next month, is a complete book on turbochargers
that explains how turbos work, design aspects, parts nomenclature, service options, and is an authoritative reference for turbocharger failure analysis.
Turbocharger technology continues to evolve as today's engines produce ever higher output from smaller displacements while meeting emissions standards. These facts place many stresses on turbos and are why turbocharger education has become an increasingly important part of vehicle fleet maintenance for both gasoline and diesel engines. Turbo provides service industry professionals with a better understanding of this vitally important engine component to assist in proper maintenance and troubleshooting.
Author Jay K. Miller uses more than 300 photos, graphs, and illustrations to make this book a complete, detailed, up-to-date resource on turbochargers. He discusses the various components of a turbocharger and explains how to decode complicated turbocharger model numbers, compressor maps, and other specs. The detailed chapter on failure analysis will help teach service personnel to understand why turbochargers fail, how to determine the cause, how to avoid repeated failures, plus a complete step-by-step turbocharger tear-down and rebuild.
