    I'm trying to better understand how turbochargers were installed in US bombers.
    I'm familiar with the turbo installations of the P-38, P-47 and P-43.
    Seeing a simple layout schematic or perhaps photos would assist greatly.

    Thanks
    :)

    I vaguely remember posting up a schematic for the B-17 but it was a while ago
