Off the top of my head, I would say that the vanes inside the turbo, that catch the exhaust that drives the turbo are adjustable for pitch. To catch more, or less, exhaust, to spin the turbo faster, or slower.

Like a variable pitch propeller on a plane.

Or maybe the driven blades that move the intake air are variable.

maybe i don't know. but that fucker is spinning at 100,000 rpm, it seems like you could find another place to fiddle faddle the amount of boost that wouldn't involve such an insane amount of reciprocating, no, washplating machinery.

I'm gonna look it up.

Ok, looks like they're changing the geometry of the inlet air, either with a sliding wall which reminds me of a choke plate, or by using vanes on the inlet (turbine side, exhaust stream) that can change their angle and direct the flow toward different places on the turbine blades (not the compressor blades on the "inlet" for the intake to the engine.

interesting.

Just because you're going camping like some middle class worker bee doesn't mean you can't be cool.
