Kids, This Is Where Turbochargers Come From (w/Video)

Inside the Turbonetics factory.

Turbos are like ice cream: they both make whatever they're going on top of better. But while touring an ice cream factory is pretty easy, seeing how the magic behind turbos happens is another story...unless you live in England, at least.

Luckily, that's why the Science Channel exists: to show us how a Turbonetics turbocharger comes into being. (Also, to show you bugs killing and eating one another.) If you like manufacturing, mechanical engineering, or squeezing extra power out of an engine by recycling exhaust gases, you're gonna like this video.
