Turbocharging improves the speed and acceleration of a methane, gasoline or diesel engine by using a turbine to compress the air that enters the engine's carburetor. A similar modification, called a superconductive drive, provides electric engines with the same performance boosts. For convenience, both modifications follow the same rules and are collectively referred to as "turbocharging".
Each level of turbocharging increases a vehicle's Speed by 15 and its Acceleration by 1 , while reducing its Signature by 1.
The Economy of the vehicle also decreases by 5 percent per level.
Aircraft (except for electrically powered aircraft) cannot be turbocharged, as their engines already incorporate turbocharging as part of their designs.
One level can always be added.
