    OK I have saw alot of cool engines and they say they have a turbo. It has a chamber at the end (where the pullsart would go) and a piece of fuel tubing going to the block. My question is how does it work does it give it alot more power? does it hum like a turbo :D just kidding

    check out the nitrous oxzide thread on here. it went into turbos and super chargers a little. it pretty much said they dont work on the 2 strokes and dont give much more power but there are a lot of details and argueing.

    ID me

    What you are describing is a boost chamber, it doesn't act like a turbo, it smoothes the throttle responce.

    It may have been a turbo plug engine, where the glow plug and head button are different, the plugs don't use a copper gasket to seal them, the plugs are tapered.
    And yes, the boost bottle does the same thing.
