exhaust pipe combustion chamber piston exhaust valve driving turbine wheel driven compressor wheel charge air cooler exhaust manifold warm-air outlet intake manifold exhaust gas admission

exhaust pipe click to hear : exhaust pipe

Tubular conduit conducting the exhaust gases from the turbo-compressor to the muffler.

combustion chamber click to hear : combustion chamber

Part of the cylinder in which the pressurized air/fuel mixture is ignited and burned.

piston click to hear : piston

Metal moving part in the cylinder and attached to the connecting rod; it compresses the air/fuel mixture, then receives the thrust from the burned gases.

exhaust valve click to hear : exhaust valve

Part that opens to allow the burned gases to escape.

driving turbine wheel click to hear : driving turbine wheel

Part converting the energy from the exhaust gases into rotational energy to activate the compressor.

driven compressor wheel click to hear : driven compressor wheel

Part integrated with the driving turbine wheel; it spins very quickly as it draws in air and compresses it.

charge air cooler click to hear : charge air cooler

The heat exchanger cools the compressed air before it enters the cylinders.

exhaust manifold click to hear : exhaust manifold

Set of pipes at the exit of the cylinders; it captures the exhaust gases and conducts them to the turbo-compressor.

warm-air outlet click to hear : warm-air outlet

When compressed, the temperature of the air increases greatly, which can make it less effective.

intake manifold click to hear : intake manifold

After cooling, the air is again conducted to the combustion chamber, which takes in more air.

exhaust gas admission click to hear : exhaust gas admission

The flow of the exhaust gas is conducted directly from the combustion chamber to the turbo compressor to drive the turbine.
