How does Subaru anti lag work?
The higher exhaust pressure and temperature combined with the increased mass flow is enough to keep the turbocharger spinning at high speed thus reducing lag. When the throttle is opened up again the ignition and fuel injection goes back to normal operation.
Can anti lag damage engine?
Anti lag is actually quite brutal. All of that backfiring can cause extra wear and damage to the rally car engine and turbo. Turbochargers are manufactured to extremely fine tolerances and not designed for explosive pressure waves.
Why does anti-lag shoot flames?
Why Does Anti-Lag Shoot Flames? In reality, anti-lag systems shoot flames because the air/fuel mixture is very, very rich and the unburnt fuel and exhaust gases ignite and send flames out of the exhaust.
Why do turbo cars spit flames?
The air+fuel mixture takes a while to vaporize and ignite around the spark, but since the engine is still in high rpm, the exhaust cycle begins. The gases are still burning while the valves are opened. Thus we see flames coming out of the exhaust.
Can turbo lag be fixed?
There isn’t a single solution to eliminate turbo lag, although there are a lot of strategies that can help. Most importantly, though, is building a combination that has the converter, cam, compression ratio, displacement, gearing, and even correct braking system for the turbo that’s being used.
At what speed does turbo kick in?
When a turbocharger “kicks in” is based on exhaust pressure, so RPM’s (Revolutions Per Minute) are a better indicator of when your turbo is activated. You could be driving 60mph at 1800RPM and the turbo might not be working, but at 20mph your turbo would kick in if you are hard accelerating once you pass 2200rpm.
Can a stock car shoot flames?
Yes you can. Add a working spark plug to the exhaust tip. Then pull on the choke lever while you turn off the main ignition for a second or two. Huge flame.
