RE: Exhaust problems and questions.
|===| : pipework

Cyl |=| exhaust |=| black turbo part |====| outside
Cyl | Carb | white turbo part ||

Best to pipe as many cylinder exhaust ports together as practicable and then start feeding them into turbos. Turbochargers work by taking energy out of the exhaust ( which is hot air mostly, it just came from the explosion in the cylinder ) & spinning a turbine blade. That is connected directly by a shaft to another turbine blade which compresses the air coming into the cylinder. Mostly that's so you can burn more fuel while still keeping the fuel/air mixture the same and with the added benefit of keeping the fuel/air ratio the same for changing altitudes, but there's some efficiency gain for presumably certain installations which I'm not too certain about ( taking energy from the exhaust & adding it to the input air should do something, presumably - but if you add an intercooler after the turbo it'll just take it all out again ). As an anecdote, Porsche's hybrid Le Mans prototype has a turbine in the exhaust attached to an alternator which charges the hybrid batteries.

In common with everything else about FtD fuel engines, that's all reversed & it makes the engine burn less fuel for the same power Tongue

Poke my boat! mostly pre-2.0 learning & catalogue thread - Heavy & light tanks 18/11/17. 6 ships made 2.0 aware. If it's not AotE I can't do it regularily - sea -> post processing -> eyestrain.

I've been putting exhaust pipes to the little swirly thing in the white part, I take it that's not what I'm supposed to do?

Thats how suposed to be done fox

There is always a weak-spot if you search Hard enough.

If you fire enough AP at that shield, at some point you're going to come through.

There is no "best" I wouldn't even say there is anything universally good, Good is subjective, I find everything bad even if it's in theory good against this or that.

The white part is the intake turbine - air goes in the hole & out into the carb, you don't need to pipe that bit, just connect it to the carb. You need to pipe both sides of the black part ( well technically you can leave one open if the engine is outside, otherwise you need to pipe exhaust out to keep the engine cool ).

There is that price that contacts with carburettor when properly placed.

So, I need to make exhaust go into the wide part of the black side, and attach pipes to it's exhaust port?

RE: Exhaust problems and questions.
Any port on the black side, it's not directional anymore. Just make sure there's exhaust going in, and if it's inside a room then there's exhaust going out. The white part doesn't need any pipes, just needs the flat side on the carb.
