Title: Turbocharger

Abstract

A turbocharger is described which consists of: a turbine having a turbine wheel carried within a turbine housing and rotatably driven by exhaust gases from an internal combustion engine; a compressor having a compressor wheel carried within a compressor housing and rotatably driven by the turbine for supplying charge air to the internal combustion engine; a common shaft connected between the turbine wheel and the compressor wheel; a center housing connected between the turbine housing and the compressor housing around the common shaft and including bearing means to rotatably support the common shaft; an annular ring disposed around the compressor housing and including a plurality of bolt openings therein aligned with the bolt openings in the turbine housing; and a plurality of bolts extending between the turbine housing and the annular ring in the openings therein.
