I mean, I don't know about the rest of the F 175 but, that turbo design is just wrong.johnny comelately wrote: ↑Mon Sep 12, 2022 10:35 pmIf this Chronos stuff is not completely fanciful, it may be that the compressor ingress is reversed and the end plate is shaft bearing support. Guessing you people may have already figured this out, bit slow here.
The claim is a 2 kg weight reduction in the vee located water intercooler with more efficiency

It mustn't be inside the V, I imagine it like the Mercedes compressor, like part of the front engine cover.ringo wrote: ↑Thu Aug 11, 2022 1:54 amYes, based on what I have seen of the other engines.Clubman1d wrote: ↑Wed Aug 10, 2022 5:43 pmI don't believe it's a special compressor.
The setup must be something like, turbine, mgu-h, compressor, intercooler.
The compressor has only one exit that comes out the top turns to the front of the car and into the intercooler.
Are they still allowed variable intake runners?
I believe the compressor can be in the V. But why would it be so small?
I though the teams were moving away from small diameter compressors?
It seems Ferrari has very good response and low down torque.. but could this be because of the compressor size?
But how do they benefit to get peak power without a compromise.
