How Brake Boosters Work on Turbo Cars


If you have ever wondered how the force you exert on a brake pedal makes a vehicle weighing thousands of pounds actually stop, this is the role of a brake or vacuum booster in a turbo-charged auto—or any other automobile that has one.


The principle design, function and operations of a brake booster are no different in a turbo-charged vehicle than they are when applied o a standard engine model.
