Furthermore, how does a car diverter valve work?
Every time that you hit the gas on a turbocharged vehicle, air goes into the engine because the throttle plate opens up. The air is compressed and forced into the engine by the turbo. If you shift, you let off the throttle. The diverter valve takes that compressed air and recycles it through the intake stream.
