What do you mean by "inverted"?
I am completely lost with this...
Like this. Frontal area would be slightly less compromised and compact like in Honda Merc case. Tho inlet pipe is compromised and entry vanes are harder too design.vorticism wrote: ↑Tue Aug 09, 2022 2:24 amI'm still on the fence. If it's split it has a unique compressor outlet which feeds directly into the cylindrical IC. Otherwise it is still a more typical joined turbo as in previous seasons, with the compressor at the rear, and we simply can't see the charge/transfer pipes beneath the VIM plenums. When you look at the 2019-21 power unit everything looks the same except for the air filter(s) and intercooler
I like that idea combined with the backward front compressor I suggested the other day.
It looks to me that the turbo intake is running through the V (atmospheric from the filter at the front), the turbo outlet (compressed) is also now running through the V into the rear of the intercooler and out through the top into the plenum (previous version had the pipe into the intercooler at the top out at the bottom (very awkward layout into the plenum!!).PlatinumZealot wrote: ↑Fri Aug 12, 2022 5:07 amIt could also be the same old compressor location too because the old engine also had an ambiguous compressor location.
Look at the compressor discharge pipe in the bottom left photo going to the intercooler and look where it is coming from...

It may be the the easiest (less detrimental) path to move the air though 90 degrees inside the charge-cooler rather than outside (as it does with the box-style cooler. By using a swirl-pot or centrifuge within the cooler the compressed air may stay within it for longer. Remember, because of the mgu-h these engines effectively have no lag (such a set-up would probably not work as well in a more standard turbo installation).
