Turbo shut down in ecoboost
If you look at gmc and dodge they use active fuel management where they shut down 4 of 8 cylinders on v8 and 2 of 6 on v6 4 better fuel economy.I was wondering if that would work with the turbos. Where they would shut down when u don't need the power and when u need the extra power when towing, passing then the turbos would activate so when your crusing at high way speed they would be off 2 increase fuel economy.

William S Actually turbocharged vehicles with variable valve timing are usually more fuel efficient with the turbo boost when cruisng than without. They take advantage of having the intake valves open during a portion of the compression stroke. This is known as a modified atkinson cycle configuration. Leave the turbo on.
