Turbocharger Basics and Tutorials

As we get closer to the release of the Genesis Coupe, I thought it would be prudent to list some sites that had some basic information on turbochargers and how they work. There is also a few links to some more advanced stuff. I do realize many of you already know the basics but there will be those who don't and these links will be good reads. If anyone has any other links post them up. The Garrett turbo lessons (PDF) are available for download as well. Enjoy!

Man, I finished all the classes & I've been taking my final exam trying to plot my graphs & determine the right turbo for me. This is some hard shit, I feel like I'm back in college studying calculus, physics, chemistry, something til' I'm getting dizzy.:confused:

Here it is 2am in the morning, knowing I gotta get up for work in 3 1/2hrs & I'm seeing double.:zzz:

I really want to understand this shit, but can't ya'll just tell me what to get? :stab: I trust you guys.
Nice excel sheet.

Try putting in the stock HP values at max RPM and see if your PSI is zero. That should be a good double check. At 306HP I'm still getting about 3.75PSI. In order to get it to be 0 PSI (atmospheric) your A/F Ration would have to be 9.94
