How to reduce engine stress

One simple way to do the above is to use a Surbo in your vehicle. What happens then?

1. With a Surbo, there will be more torque. This means the accelerator won't need to be pressed as much as before, so fuel input is less, over-fueling is prevented, and less harmful carbon deposits can accumulate in the engine. Such deposits often form on the valves and glow red hot, causing the petrol to pre-ignite, resulting in harmful detonation.

2. For petrol engines: the Surbo-assisted engine can run on lower compression (a smaller throttle opening results in a lower absolute manifold pressure, as shown on any boost or vacuum meter). For example, the Surbo sends the engine to its rpm red line with just 1/2 throttle instead of full throttle, meaning the same engine speed is achieved with lower absolute compression, so the compression forces in the cylinders are less and they will last longer. At high rpm, due to this lower compression, the Surbo helps the engine avoid knocking, as shown in the graph below.

For diesel engines, which have no throttle and which thrive on higher compression for better ignition, the Surbo helps deliver higher net compression, and at just half accelerator pressure required to achieve the rpm limit, the diesel injected is also half, so combustion heat is lowered. For modern diesel vehicles with particulate filters, the filters will not clog up so soon, since less fuel injected means less soot produced.

3. With less fuel being put in due to a smaller throttle opening, engine knock tendency is reduced, and tolerance of lower octanes is increased.

4. Gearbox controls in Surbo-equipped automatic vehicles will be preserved, since Surbo activation and gearchanges can be effected via throttle control only, without needing to shift the gear lever to L or sport, for a lower gear.

5. A higher gear/ lower rpm can be used for the same speed, leading to less cylinder wear and tear.

6. Our airtight installation of the Surbo means that vacuum leaks will be eliminated, meaning no dirt can get into the engine, so avoiding wear and tear in the cylinder due to friction from grime. We rectify vacuum leaks due to normal wear and tear, or careless servicing by mechanics, or after air vacuum tube or air filter pipe modifications by third parties.

7. The higher torque with the Surbo means that clutching time will be cut down, whether your vehicle is manual or automatic, so reducing clutch wear.
