Honeywell DualBoost Turbocharger for Medium Duty Diesel Engines

Honeywell's Dual Boost turbocharger promises a new range of design options for engine designers. It has a dual sided unit: Intake compressor and exhaust turbine on a single shaft enclosed in one common overall housing. This unit is lighter and smaller than two turbos in series, allowing it to mount in the channel of a V engine. Pedestal mounting of the unit onto an engine also reduces NVH and it allows direct transfer of lubricant and coolant from channels in the engine head (usually) to the turbo unit without using tubes and hoses. Dual Boost contributed to the Ford 6.7L reaching 400 bhp, higher than the engines of competitors.
