Abstract: The heat produced in turbocharger has the potential to destroy the bearing system and the oil piston ring. For the past years, the researchers have focused on heat transfer of micro turbocharger. The lack of research on the cooling system of the turbocharger has motivated the author to publish this paper. In this paper, the electrical water pump with air blower is used to reduce the heat effect. The impact of adding electric water pump o heat distribution on turbocharger has been discovered by conducting experimental research. The experimental research was conducted on one cylinder, two-stroke with Lifan engine 160 cc equipped with the turbocharger. The temperatures of the turbine, bearing housing, coolant inlet and outlet are measured and analyzed in this turbocharged engine test rig.
