Finding where to place all the parts of a turbo system can cause problems for car designers. Turbochargers become very hot, so heat-sensitive parts have to be shielded and the fuel is best supplied by a continuous-loop system to avoid vaporization problems. Intercoolers need to be placed in an airstream while their pipework has to be kept as short as possible.
