Turbocharger Compressor Housing
The Turbocharger Compressor Housing is a part of your vehicle's turbocharger in which the compressor wheel is mounted. The housing incorporates the volute that draws the air in and conducts it to the impeller blades and on to the intercooler assembly after compression. The radial design of the compressor housing dictates the flow and pressure of the air that enters the intercooler.
The compressor draws the air over its compressor wheel blades and then distributes the air centrifugally away from the blades of the wheel towards the intercooler. The compressor housing is usually constructed of steel or cast-iron to withstand the high temperature generated when the air is compressed.
A faulty or cracked compressor housing will cause the air in the compressor unit to leak out and cause extraneous substances like dirt and debris to enter the compressor. This would cause a significant drop in the efficiency of your turbocharger and can also damage the other parts of your turbocharger. You should replace your turbocharger compressor housing if you experience a drop in your engine's performance as it could be an indicator of faulty compressor housing.
