Not connected with this fella...thought you might enjoy the video as over the years there have been several threads here at GTT about the topic.
No sir. I'm interested in an engineered package that will operate faithfully for many years to come. Reliability and parts availability is key to longevity.Now-i bet them fellas who have flames on their :greentractorride:'s would be highly interested in this.:flag_of_truce::laugh:
Mine is shoving air into a 1.5 liter Yanmar,, that adds 15% to the maximum HP,,,At the end of the day you are shoving air into a 1 liter engine, you can only shove so much. T

Isn't this an "fuel economy" thing??
The excess fuel is not used, unless you need the power.
If the mowing is easy, the engine loafs along,, hit some tall grass,, the injectors pump in more fuel.
Otherwise, a naturally aspirated engine would have to be over 2 liters for the same HP and torque??
This engine has a heck of a big cooling fan for the small engine,,, :flag_of_truce:
I know even less,, so today, I had to test the new-to-me 1.5 liter turbo Yanmar.I know only enough to be dangerous here but find this interesting.
That's what I got out of the video, a chill guy goofing around for the most part. I don't think he made any outrageous claims or empty promises. I basically got from the video that all he was trying to do was make some sound, which he did accomplishGuy seems pretty chill. Nice to see experimentation. I would think he should get a small gain even if he doesn't adjust fuel, but I would not mess with adding a turbo if I didn't have a way to adjust the fuel and monitor egt. I'm confused by something he said though. He stated the tractor would only use a small percentage of the boost that turbo would produce and talked about blocking off the wastegate passage. Wouldn't that scenario actually mean that much of the boost produced would in fact get diverted out the wastegate more or less constantly under load?
