Yes, this is a true turbocharger and they are used on very large diesel engines. Ours are painted yellow. Wheel is fully machined from forged AL blank.

The Napier name can be recognized for exotic engines (Napier Sabre) back in The War years (WWII).

The Napier Nomad is possibly the last of these extreme engineered masterpieces. It lost out to the rise of gas turbines. Fascinating reading:

Check out the maximum manifold pressure - 89PSI
