Dales Super Store - Turbo Housings
Turbo housings are critical components of turbochargers that enclose and direct the flow of exhaust gases and compressed air within the turbocharger. They play a crucial role in optimizing turbocharger performance, ensuring efficient operation, and maintaining proper airflow dynamics.

More About Turbo Housings
There are two main types of turbo housings: the turbine housing and the compressor housing.
- The turbine housing is located on the exhaust side of the turbocharger and houses the turbine wheel. Its primary function is to direct the flow of exhaust gases from the engine into the turbine wheel, where the gases impinge on the blades, causing the turbine wheel to rotate. The turbine housing is designed with specific inlet and outlet sizes, angles, and shapes to control the exhaust gas flow and optimize turbine performance. It plays a crucial role in determining the turbocharger's exhaust gas flow characteristics, boost response, and overall efficiency.
- The compressor housing, on the other hand, is located on the intake side of the turbocharger and encloses the compressor wheel. Its primary function is to channel ambient air into the compressor wheel, where it is compressed and forced into the engine's intake manifold. The compressor housing is designed with specific inlet and outlet sizes, shapes, and angles to control airflow and maximize compressor efficiency. It also includes features such as a diffuser and anti-surge ports to optimize compressor performance and prevent surging.
