Turbochargers Increase Engine Efficiency

VIDEO: The Current Spin On Turbochargers

To really understand a turbocharger, it’s important to be familiar with its components.

In the past, a turbocharger was considered a high-performance piece of equipment. Today, however, it’s becoming far more commonplace, and with good reason.  

When you consider that a normal internal combustion engine operates at a 20% thermal efficiency, there’s a lot of fuel energy being wasted out the tailpipe. A turbocharged vehicle uses some of that wasted energy to increase performance.

What Are Direct Ignition Coils?

The stick coil eliminates ignition wires and utilizes wasted space by fitting neatly into the spark plug bore.

Ignition coils transform battery voltage into the higher voltage needed to jump the spark plug gap and efficiently ignite the air-fuel mixture in an engine.

Direct ignition coils are by far the most common type of ignition coil found in modern direct ignition systems, and they’ve been adopted by most of the major automakers. In this design, the coil mounts directly on top of the spark plug, eliminating the need for an ignition wire.
