NOVEMBER 2019 THE SHOP 113 The new G Series turbochargers have compact packaging with increased horse- power, efficiency and turbine flow to support larger engine displacements—a benefit for enthusiasts that want the best in response and power. The outside factor currently having the biggest effect on the Turbocharger market is … … ECU systems. FuelTech, Haltech, and Holley are making some amazing products that allow fine control over the inputs and outputs of the turbo system at amazing rates, giving enthusiasts more control and data than ever. After all, the turbo's job is simple—it spins and makes power, but something must help control it. A common misconception regarding aftermarket Turbochargers is … … safety and testing. There are a lot of companies that modify and release prod- ucts without proper testing. Turbo failures can cause major damage to racers and to people around them. For example, if a GTX55 turbine wheel spinning at 130,000 rpm—well past its limit—was to fail, the energy of the wheel would be equal to three 0.50-caliber bullets being fired at the same time at the same spot. With performance being the top pri- ority of typical enthusiasts, it is important to support companies that understand this. Here's a tip shops can use to increase their Turbocharger-related sales … … it's always a good idea to forecast your inventory so you are never short on product when there's an enthusiast in need. Quality aftermar- ket ECU systems allow fine control over the inputs and outputs of the turbo system at impressive rates, giving enthusi- asts more control and data than ever.
