Hello,

Did the L&HR's C-420's have mechanical or electrical turbo chargers?

Thank you in advance of your help.

Sincerely,
Walter COnklin

All turbochargers are mechanical. They use exhaust pressure to compress more air into an internal combustion engine, which makes the engine able to combust more fuel, which produces more power.
