Abstract

The goal of this project was to produce a turbocharged engine system that maximized the system's horsepower-to-weight ratio and could be installed on the 2008 FSAE racecar. In order to accomplish this goal, a complete turbocharged engine system was designed and optimized based on limitations such as cost, FSAE rules and chassis size. Most necessary components were purchased or machined. Ultimately, the design was completed but the implementation could only be advanced as far as the budget would permit.
