Well here is a wierd one,
My sister has a Reno Twingo Turbo,
This car was built by the Tuning company called Van aaken, and they used a Vw Tdi Turbo on a 1.3cc petrol engine.
If ive just read that right, that someones put a diesel turbo on a petrol engine, then that wont last long. Im lead to believe that the turbo cant handle the extra strain, revs and more boost and therefore extra heat created by a petrol engine. The blade angles are also wrong for a Petrol.
I think you can buy massive diesel turbo's for about 50p on on ebay, perfect for a big power skyline or supra, based on the petrol variant, whereas the petrol equivilent costs over £1000 purely because of the abuse their designed for.
Can anyone shed light on that for us if im right?
Funny subject actually, petty DIEsel cars, i recently read somewhere that theyre trying to create spark combustion engines running on diesel to allow greater fuel economy and emmisions aswell as greater control of engine management and timing.
