exhaust stroke, the exhaust valves close and the cycle
(inlet, compression, power, exhaust) starts again.
Exhaust gases from the exhaust manifold go into the
turbine side of the turbocharger (8) and cause turbine
wheel (6) to turn. The turbine wheel is con- nected to the
shaft that drives compressor wheel (5). The exhaust
gases then go out the exhaust outlet (7) through exhaust
elbow (9).

aftercooler lowers the temperature of the com- pressed
air before it goes into the inlet chambers in each cylinder
head.
This cooled, compressed air fills the inlet
chambers in the cylinder heads. Air flow from the inlet
chamber into the cylinder is controlled by the intake
valves.
There are two intake and two exhaust valves for
each cylinder.
Make reference to Valve System
Components. The intake valves open when the piston
moves down on the inlet stroke. Cooled, compressed air
from the inlet chamber is pulled into the cylinder.
