My Imola Red Turbo ZHP is for sale. I'm still driving it but current mileage is under 109000. I've had the car since 5/2008 (it was a CPO from the local dealership with 34250 miles). Since 1/2010...
Such that the boost & nitrous should fill the cylinder, but not fly out the exhaust valves uncombusted...
Welll...ok...I guess if you have to go turbo on this and make even more power...*sigh*
Is this project turbo+nitrous or S/C+nitrous?
I see what you mean
Gotcha. With VANOS, are there any inherent limitations or interlocks that you have to work around? Like can you only make the intake timing so good before the exhaust timing starts to become a...
Thus far I have only a tenuous grasp of VANOS and its implications or any of this really but I guess if you know the pressure at intake, chamber and exhaust on a degree basis, you can A) (not VANOS...
Indeed, 3-sensor-per-cylinder data for every degree of crank rotation is where it's at: http://www.tfxengine.com/
How do you decide where to drill in for the combustion chamber sensors? I don't...
ah, I see:
"A CDI system has a short charging time, a fast voltage rise (between 3 ~ 10 kV/μs) compared to typical inductive systems (300 ~ 500 V/μs) and a short spark duration limited to about...
This led me to some reading about the S85 and then the S70/2 which I was surprised to learn had no knock sensing system, because: "Combustion conditions are sufficiently remote from knock limits that...
Dude, this is his hobby. We're just along for the ride.
Well I for one am learning a lot in this Greek dialogue of a thread...
I'm guessing that the result will be crystal clear flow data which is probably nice to have when looking to get "600-700 wtrq" out of a cutting edge SC/nitrous M54 :cool:
I guess IR usually refers to the Nightshot feature on a camcorder; I was thinking the fancier predator-vision 'FLIR' kind but yeah even a tiny Fluke handheld is about 2x as much as I thought...
Hopefully we'll get to see some infrared video footage :D
Yeah I can see why you'd ask that - those welds look pretty tentative, don't they? I bet that unless this idea proves cost effective immediately he'll probably just give up and grind them out...
Short run time? Like during initial heat cycling?
Clearly he appreciates innovation ;)
Obviously this is a first for the M54 - are there precedents for this on other engines that were not initially designed for it?
Maybe incidentally, but he really has head lift in his crosshairs:
(fwiw I'm envisioning a lot of thunder and lightning going on in the background while he's typing this from his mountaintop...
I was wondering if detonation or this 'BMEP' was the force that would tip things toward a head lift scenario...but I guess under heavy boost it can be the BMEP.
side question if anyone knows: what...
excerpt from a patent:
I guess that stuff^ plus I imagine it would go a long way toward defeating 'head lift' in extreme situations:
Warping would no longer be an issue.
Yes.....I think he did mention the headache of fitting numerous radiators....at another time in another place.....
There are slightly discolored splotches on the intake and exhaust side of each cylinder's valve group where some kind of indentations or passageways are filled in. What flowed through them? Water? ...

I love WTCC!
