The pressure ratio scales almost linearly with speed so that the higher speed translates into a compressor pressure ratio that is 20 percent higher than the original turbocharger.
Key parameters such as the compressor pressure ratio and aerodynamic efficiency, temperatures of hot gas path parts, combustion dynamics behavior, as well as engine output, vibration and emissions have been validated and demonstrated.
