I have never owned a turbo car. I drove test a turbo CX-50. As for repairs, how long do turbos last on Mazdas before needing any repairs?
Sorry, but not quite.2 channels. 1 for quicker boost at low rpm, then it opens to a higher flow channel. Think of it like your thumb on the water hose to build that pressure quickly.
Now THAT's really interesting. Since that's the newest model I assume all the future 2.5T engines will come like that. Maybe a cost reduction factor again (or reliability, or??)So to clear up the confusion, the turbo in every Mazda 2.5T is a Dynamic Pressure Turbo, aside from the CX-50. On the CX-50, the turbo is a twin-scroll design. If you use the Mazda Build and Price tool, you'll see that only the CX-50's Turbo is described as a Twin-scroll Turbo, everything else is a DPT.
Why they made the change, I don't know.
Interesting, i see it still has the 4-3 exhaust scavenging set-up. It would be interesting to see how it feeds into the turbo. Also quite surprised the power delivery would be identical with the old and new set-up. I am surprised no one mentioned any differences yet.
