Why do you differentiate between a turbo and a non turbo glen?  After the
turbine the engineering app is the same

The turbines are pushed not sucked similar to an airplane wing with a hi
pressure and low pressure of the wing......  The high pressure pushes the
wing to move the fan, the fan itself is only spinning as fast as the velocity
of the gas it doesn't push any air out (maybe in theory right at lift
throttle), so the principle of exhaust velocity stays the same, you want to
keep the heat up to keep the velocity up, get the gasses out ASAP =

Let me ck my library for you......  I believe you can find most of this
theory in Tune To Win, if my memory serves correctly..............
