    Default What Is A Muffler Bearing?

    the question has plagued our community n00bs for several years now. well, i have the answer for you.

    this is a muffler bearing:



    FACT: a turbocharger reduces noise and therefore is technically a muffler
    FACT: there are bearings in the CHRA. typically there is one for the compressor side and one for the exhaust side.

    SO if we refer to the turbine as a muffler and there is a bearing on the exhaust side of the CHRA, then we have a muffler bearing.

    there has always been a factual muffler bearing - although your definition is a little funnier.


    volvos have muffler bearings. its what they actually call their rubber muffler hangers.

    Is not a 'bearing' a part used to support the mass and facilitate the motion of another moving part? So yeah, you don't need a turbo, the rubber exhaust hanger above the muffler that keeps it from hanging down and accommodates it's vibration is a muffler bearing too.

    no, a bearing is a moving part designed with ball bearings for low friction and freedom of movement (rotational)...the rubber exhaust hangers are not bearings...they're hangers.
