Turbochargers

May 19, 2010 - 12:57pm

Anthony Mosallam and Jonathon Deming, students at the Flabob Airport Preparatory Academy in Riverside, Calif., designed and built a turbine engine for their high school’s annual science fair. The engine was made from auto parts and a leaf blower, which was used to provide air to start the engine. A Buick Regal turbocharger was used as the compressor, and propane powers the engine.
