My understanding is Turbos cram more air/fuel into the engine for a gas-wasting event, like WOT performance, not always but when needed.

So when most of the time driving, not needed is the plan for economy. I feel I don't need one for my main uses. I get my G-Force kicks at amusement parks and save the ticket expense for extra fuel for travel, save tires for the sake of not buying more. Pick Scenic routs also often.

Yes my Chevy Cruze's 1.4L engine has a low pressure turbo. Good torque and sounds decent too.

Reply to >>> Awing1 <<< I'm thinking Turbocharger is an optional energy Boost of a performance engine device... Like >>>>>> To/Utterly/Release/Bigger/Omnipitents-Causing/Huge/Amounts/Reserve/Energy/Released >>> for racy/sporty performance of the vehicle(Extra Scat) when needed! I don't have one.
