Still smaller than the ones I worked on back at Halliburton.
i wonder how much oil the turbo alone takes...
probably as much as a b-motor... or more.
SO WILL THAT WORK ON MY FUCKIN D15??!?!
lol that small one is about the size of the turbo im going to use
I would LOVE to just fab up an exhaust manifold to run to that, just to see if a Honda Motor could even SPIN that turbo! LOL! Let alone make boost on it!
Eh, I have worked on larger ones, that is actually quite small compared to what is out there, aircraft carriers and container ships have massive turbos.
and don;t they also have a stroke length of like 2 stories?
How big are the aircraft turbos? Could you compare it to something? Like the size of dub?
Aircrraft turbos are not really all that big...they are not there to add gobs of power like a car...they are mainly used to add positive pressure to the intake at high altitudes...granted some do boost, and they boost very well...and they do add a lot of take off power...but not in the since that people whodeal with cars think of.
aircrafts main goals are to fly longer, higher, faster, and use as little gas as possible, cause gas is just heavy...and at over 6 lbs per gallon.....a lot of gas is needed to take a 20,000 lb plane a long distance.
So a fine medium is found, and used....flight is more of an economical sport...or a business.. Use more gas, get there faster, but have to land many times to get gas=not good. Fly with just the right boost, use just the right amount of gas, and not waste any gas or useable fuel load...and save money...aircraft gas is not cheap...and infact...plane tickets go up....when the price of gas goes up...
And there was something on the news a few days about how most airlines are chargeing fat people more money...cuase they have to use more gas to get their lard asses in the air.
LMAO i saw that thing about fat people- fucking hilarious
holy shit...and thats wrong to do that to a bigger person
America's Overweight problems=higher gas prices for everyone who fly's.....a known fact.
Add a Fat Tax...and some poeple will start considering to diet....why make a skinny guy pay more for a plane ticket?
Good point...I guess i'm skinny so why should i pay more?Ok now to get america to diet :roll: not gonna happen <_<
