Hey guys.

This isn't necessarily related to MKIVs, but I figured I'd post it here since most of us runs turbos and know about them.

Do any of you see any benefits of placing some kind of a torque sensor on the turbo shaft that links the two wheels to calculate the torque being exerted on the compressor and exhaust wheels.

I would be interested to see a sensor that can do that.

I think you would be better off measuring compressor discharge temperature/pressure and turbo speed. You should be able to calculate the required power to generate the temp/pressure rise and use the speed to get torque.

What would you do with it though? Shafts usualy only break as a result of a wheel failing or a wheel rubbing a housing --> becoming imbalanced and self destructing.
