Cobb, Eben C
The goal of this project was to determine the performance gains associated with adding a turbocharger to a naturally aspirated engine, used in a Formula SAE race car. This involved selecting the correct turbocharger for the engine, designing and fabricating the entire turbo-system, selecting and configuring an engine management system, tuning various engine variables, and performing before and after tests to determine any performance gains. This project was meant to provide future teams with design information to help them determine whether or not using a turbocharger is a viable design consideration.
