SA Design Books: Turbo: Real World High-Performance Turbocharger
Turbochargers are incredibly appealing to performance enthusiasts because of their ability to add "free" horsepower - and lots of it - to almost any engine or vehicle. Today, it seems easier than ever for the average gearhead to harness the incredible power-building capability of turbochargers. Those who want to increase the performance of their existing turbo system, or those who want to add a turbo to an existing engine, have never had so many components, vendors, and resources to choose from.
Unfortunately, this wealth of options and opinions can be hard to understand and navigate. That's where Turbo: Real World High-Performance Turbocharger Systems comes in. This book is the most complete, detailed, up-to-date resource on anything and everything to do with turbochargers. Whether you're running gas or diesel, 4, 6, 8, or more cylinders, this book will teach you to test, install, and maintain your high-performance turbo system. You'll learn how turbochargers work, how to choose the right turbo or turbos for your engine by reading flow maps, and how to tune your engine to run perfectly with your turbo system.

If you run into problems with your turbo system, there's also a detailed chapter on failure analysis to help you figure out what's wrong and how to fix it - plus a complete step-by-step turbocharger tear-down and rebuild.
