Turbocharger Basics and Tutorials

As we get closer to the release of the Genesis Coupe, I thought it would be prudent to list some sites that had some basic information on turbochargers and how they work. There is also a few links to some more advanced stuff. I do realize many of you already know the basics but there will be those who don't and these links will be good reads. If anyone has any other links post them up. The Garrett turbo lessons (PDF) are available for download as well. Enjoy!

I've learn the advanced stuff on Garrett website 2-3 years ago. Very good site. I even made an Excel file to calculate if the turbo is a good turbo for the application I wanna make based on the turbo's data plot.

Alright, my schooling has begun.
I finiished How Turbo Chargers work & I am almost done with Turbo Charger Wikopedia.
Next, I'll go to Garrett Turbo school: Turbo 101, 102, & 103.
Graduate with honors & be ready to purchase my R-Spec.
Then drift school here I come...

that's pretty funny, although I may only qualify for an associate degree.
But, some of you guys, I feel may have already gotten your masters.
