In an auto, the turbocharger system includes a boost controller which allows the turbocharger to work optimally. The boost control system in an automobile has three main parts: The boost pump, a wastegate valve, and a wastegate actuated by the control system. The control system for the turbocharger consists of an input manifold, a high-pressure intake manifold, and a high-pressure exhaust manifold.
Boost Controller Basics
Boost control is essential for the performance of any turbocharger. To boost a vehicle, the controller must first detect the exact level of boost necessary for the vehicle to reach its desired top speed. By measuring the levels of boost produced by the manifold and determining the exact air pressure needed to maintain the right levels of boost, the controller can adjust the input manifold to provide the proper amount of boost.
The best type of boost controller for you is one that you can easily install yourself. If you are familiar with automotive installation, you can most likely install your own boost controller without having to employ a professional. You will require some basic tools such as screws, bolts, and a nut wrenching tool. If you do not want to attempt to install the device yourself, you can always hire a professional to do the job.
