President Tim Roehl Describes Tornado Alley Turbos Revolutionary Technology

Tornado Alley Turbo has been at the forefront of state-of-the-art turbonormalizing systems for such aircraft as the TCM I0-520 or I0-550 powered Cessna 185s and Bonanzas. Each system converts normally aspirated engines into turbocharged engines, providing the same 29" or 30" manifold pressure available at sea level up to 20,000 feet. Designed with maximum fuel efficiency in mind, Tornado Alley Turbo systems incorporate GAMIjectors, providing significant speed increase while maintaining cool cylinder head temperatures.

GAMIjectors and TurboGAMIjectors are specially designed fuel injection nozzles that deliver specific amounts of fuel to each individual cylinder. Engineered to compensate for the fuel-to-air imbalance seen in standard factory injectors, GAMIjectors alters the fuel-to-air ratio to ensure that each cylinder operates with more uniformity. By running the engine lean of peak (LOP), the overall engine operation runs dramatically smoother, cleaner, and cooler. The result is a remarkable decrease in fuel consumption, up to 2 GPH in fuel savings, compared to normally aspirated engines.

Recently, Tornado Alley Turbo announced a new electronic wastegate turbo density-normalized controller for Cirrus SR-22 aircraft, deemed "TDN ™" to signify that the engine is Turbo Density-Normalized ™. The system will be the first part of a series of new, electronic engine controls being developed for Tornado Alley Turbo for use on a wide range of general aviation aircraft. The TDN ™ smart controller will feature automatic adjustment of mass airflow to the engine to compensate for hot day conditions. In addition, the system will feature the codenamed "World Peace" component (details have not yet been released) that will provide substantially improved LOP operation of the engine to ensure adequate engine mass flow, allowing the pilot to obtain near maximum continuous engine horsepower.
