Jack’s latest run from Elvington. AET Turbos are proud to be involved in helping Jack @Holshot racing compete to win records. We have provided Jack with some fancy BorgWarner EFR turbo setups. To help get the maximum out of his bikes Jack uses a wide range of Turbosmart products on his bikes including fuel regulators, wastegates and race port BOV’s.
Over the past few months, we’ve spent lots of time focusing on new turbo tec, and the developments that are refining turbocharging at a faster rate than ever before (check out these posts on electric turbo compounding and electric turbo tech).
The idea behind all these changes has been to improve the efficiency and responsiveness of the technology, reducing lag and maximising performance. Whilst on the surface, this sounds like a worthy cause – we’re not entirely convinced.
“There’s no replacement for displacement” – so the old motoring enthusiast’s saying goes…but does it still ring true in 2015?
Whereas once, engine size was THE determining factor in the power and performance of an engine, things are definitely changing.
As smaller engines fitted with turbochargers take over from larger naturally aspirated motors, we explore whether they can ever truly replicate the responsiveness and performance of a bigger engine.
