How it's Made-Turbochargers (On Tonight)

If your interested in watching it, the show “How it’s Made” on Discovery/Science channel is having a show tonight on how turbochargers are built in the Turbonetics turbo plant.

• Turbonetics Turbochargers
Don't forget to watch today's"How it's Made" episode at 9pm Eastern Time. Set your watches (yes, watches are part of today's episode), heat up some enchiladas (they are also in this episode, if you ever wondered how they are made) and watch some top notch turbochargers being built.

I took that as time to assemble it. Turbos are simple to take apart/put together it's the technology, design, and materials we pay for imop.

Damn I didnt get a chance to see it. What model of turbo did they assemble? I assume a T3/T4?

I agree, T-netics took a good chunk of change from me for my Y2K, but its been flawless for 6 seasons now. Top notch compnay in my eyes.
