Title: V-type engine with turbocharger

Abstract: A V-type engine having a turbocharger located between two banks, and an oil shield between the turbocharger and a valley of the banks. The oil shield blocks the oil spattered from the interbank valley so that flying of the oil to the turbocharger from the interbank valley is prevented. The oil shield may be an oil shielding plate. The oil shielding plate includes a cover portion covering a lower part of the turbocharger, and a plurality of extensions extending from the cover potion to be mounted on the engine. The cover portion has an oil outlet to allow a leakage oil to escape from the cover portion therethrough. An oil drain is formed in the interbank valley, and the leakage oil collected by the cover portion drops onto the interbank valley from the oil outlet of the cover portion and is subsequently discharged from the engine through the oil drain.
