Collection: Vital Gauges for Turbocharged Engines

Every turbo car driver is always tempted to race with other cars during long drives. If your rearview mirror shows some sports cars behind you trying to overtake, you will surely turn on your boost to speed off and maintain the lead. 

But if the other driver also boosts the car, the race can be a heart-pounding drive and highly competitive. You will push your turbo engine to the limits as pride takes into play. But how long can you boost the engine? In cases like this, more boost can be damaging. It is best to monitor the boost level of your turbo. Otherwise, you will have a busted engine.

A turbocharger requires constant monitoring during its use since the engine is pushed harder towards optimum power. However, more boost is not always good. There are limits to observe. Beyond certain points, some engine issues will start to occur. The possible damages can be massive. But you can avoid potential problems by installing replacement gauges. These instruments will allow you to monitor the real-time boost levels and engine performance.

 

 

4 Essential Gauges Every Turbo Engine Must Have

  • Boost gauge
  • Air/fuel ratio gauge
  • Oil pressure gauge
  • Boost controller

Boost Gauge

The boost gauge lets you monitor the pressure of your supercharger. It must be within the safe range for maximum performance. The gauge can further tell you that the boost level is approaching the dangerous range. Thus, you can avoid being too aggressive with the use of the accelerator.

Keep in mind that regular bouts of aggressive driving can take a toll on the engine, leading to costly consequences. Therefore, cruise gently and spare your turbo by taking advantage of the boost gauge's valuable information.

Air and Fuel Ratio Gauge

To ensure you're getting the most out of your turbo's potential power, install an air/fuel ratio gauge. The AFR gauge tells you if your car is running too lean or too rich. A lean AFR means that there is more air compared to fuel in the mixture. If left unattended, this can lead to high engine temperature that can burn some motor parts. In contrast, too rich AFR means that your engine is losing power. Therefore, keep the air and fuel ratio within the normal range for the best performance.

Oil Pressure Gauge

Oil pressure is an indication of the health of your car’s lubricating system. Low oil pressure means there is little oil left in the system. On the contrary, high pressure is a warning sign of serious engine trouble that requires urgent attention. It is for this reason that an oil pressure gauge is a necessary accessory. By installing the device on the dashboard, you can ensure that the pressure is within the normal range from 25 to 65 psi.

Boost Controller

The boost controller lets you manage the pressure in the manifold by adjusting the pressure rushing to the wastegate. The controller accurately changes the pressure signal to the wastegate actuator to force the turbo to create a new but higher boost. This instrument is not installed on the dashboard but near the turbocharger. However, it performs a vital role.

Don’t wait for your turbo engine to get busted. An aftermarket Hyundai Genesis boost gauge can protect your supercharged car and keep it in top shape. Likewise, a boost controller can significantly enhance the performance of your turbo engine.
