The patent, however, was not published until 1921. Meanwhile, during late 1917, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, to consider rapid development of the turbocharger to support the war effort, approached Sanford A. Moss of General Electric (there is no known collaboration between Rateau and Moss). Research was carried out at Pikes Peak in Colorado, approximately 4,250 meters above sea level. At that time there were altitude test chambers for aircraft engines, but not for an engine, a turbocharger, a propeller, and all the accessories.

A wide selection of turbo models and flow ranges are available. Fixed geometry, wastegated turbos, and even full variable geometry is now in production on many applications. Advanced materials and designs solve several problems of the past, and getting an engine to work with its turbo system is now so possible for virtually anyone because of the available system components and integrated electronic engine management and support systems. It used to be that large turbos required for small engines to build high horsepower suffered from excessive system lag at vehicle launch.

People tend to fear what they don’t understand and understanding the turbocharger and its use remains an area of mystery to many racers and engine builders. This book allays such fear. In just one read you will be well on your way to total turbo knowledge. No matter what your power goal, a turbocharged engine will outlive a supercharged engine. And on the same engine running a fixed octane, turbos make a hell of a lot more power before the engine begins to knock and enter detonation. But many turbocharged engines never realize their potential because the internal components aren’t up to the task or the support systems in the vehicle are not adequate or proper.
