IHI says it has developed world's smallest turbocharger for vehicles

TOKYO — IHI Corp said Monday it has developed what it claims is the world's smallest turbocharger for vehicles and plans to manufacture 100,000 units of the product annually for Daihatsu Motor Co's minivehicles.

The turbocharger, which is about 20 percent smaller than existing models, will work to enhance engine output through aerodynamic effects, IHI, one of Japan's major heavy machinery makers, said.
