What's The Difference Between Horsepower & Torque? Why Is Peak Acceleration At Peak Power? https://youtu.be/cb6rIZfCuHI Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Awesome Car Products: https://www.amazon.com/shop/engineeringexplained Which is better, horsepower or torque? Two words that are often stated in the car community, but often misunderstood. This video seeks to clarify the difference between the two, without silly analogies like "horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take it with you" (which, by the way, is highly inaccurate). Torque is a force acting at a radius, while horsepower simply incorporates time into the equation. This video will discuss the differences, how each applies to internal combustion engines, how they relate, what peak torque and peak horsepower actually mean, and how to analyze torque and horsepower curves. Finally, what's more important for acceleration, a car with lots of power, or lots of torque? Let's get technical. With the context of an engine: Power = Torque x Angular Velocity. In imperial units, this translates to Horsepower = Torque x RPM / 5252. Engineering Explained is a participant in the Amazon Influencer Program. Don't forget to check out my other pages below!

Two-Stroke Opposed-Piston Diesel Engine By Achates Power EE Shirts! - http://bit.ly/2BHsiuo Recommended Books & Car Products - http://amzn.to/2BrekJm Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 The Achates Power opposed-piston engine is packed full of unique technology. The supercharged, turbocharged, diesel 3 cylinder makes use of six pistons, two of which operate in each cylinder. It’s a two-stroke design, meaning every time the pistons come together a power stroke occurs, forcing both pistons away from one another and rotating their respective crankshafts. The two crankshafts are geared together to a common output shaft, which powers the vehicle. Research has shown two-stroke opposed piston engines to be wildly efficient. 3 cylinder designs are the most efficient, and it’s possible to achieve brake thermal efficiencies as high as 55%, a massive improvement for road car engines. The engine in this video is a 2.7L 3-cylinder producing 270 HP and 480 lb-ft of torque.

Drilled, Slotted & Vented Brake Rotors - What's Best?
 
04:59
When replacing your brake rotors, you may opt to upgrade to drilled, slotted, or vented rotors. Which brake rotor is best? What brake rotors will perform better? What are the best options for performance brakes? Ultimately, vented disc are great for heat rejection. Slotted rotors can aid in moving debris away from the rotor, and potentially adding a biting surface for the pad to contact. Drilled rotors aren't used in professional racing due to the stress failures they tend to have.

The Differences Between Inline Four & Boxer Four Engines

We have a 3D printed EJ20 Subaru boxer engine, as well as a 22RE Toyota inline-four engine. We’ll start fairly basic and work our way through several different topics for each layout, including the four strokes, the firing interval and order, the vibrations of each layout, the packaging differences, the cylinder head differences, and finally a bit about the sound. Looking at either layout, they’re both based on the same four strokes. Intake, compression, power, and exhaust. Both engines fire one cylinder for every 180 degrees of crankshaft rotation, but they have slightly different firing orders. On each engine, we can see cylinders one, two, three, and four. For the boxer engine, the firing interval is one, three, two, four, while on the straight four it’s one, three, four, two, so the order of the last two cylinders firing is switched. On the boxer engine, you’ll notice the pairs of pistons move in and out together. This means that the primary forces when the piston reaches the top of the cylinder, as well as when they reach the bottom of the cylinder, are canceled out. On the inline four cylinder engine, it’s the same story, the primary forces cancel out as the pairs of pistons reach the top and bottom at the same time. When we get into secondary forces, however, the engines begin to differ. Secondary forces are created due to the piston traveling faster at the top half of the piston than at the bottom half, something I’ll include a link to in the description for a video that breaks it down in great detail. What you need to know though, is that when the piston reaches the very top of the cylinder, or the very bottom, the secondary force points up or out from the piston. Now with the boxer engine, since the pistons point opposite each other, these forces are balanced out, resulting in a very smooth running engine. For the inline four, all of the forces point in the same direction, and thus do not cancel each other out, causing the engine to vibrate unless balancing shafts are used. The boxer engine isn’t perfect, however, because the pistons do not perfectly align with each other, it creates a rocking moment which makes the engine want to rotate back and forth along the vertical axis. What’s fascinating, however, is that if you add two cylinders to either of these designs, whether it’s a boxer six or an inline six, you can perfectly eliminate all first and second order forces and moments. You might think the boxer six would have a rocking motion from the cylinder banks of three, but each bank of three cylinders cancels out the rocking motion of the other, unlike in a V6 configuration. The other biggest advantage of the boxer engine is the low profile, which keeps the center of gravity low and thus reduces the amount of load transfer you have in the car during braking, cornering, or accelerating, which improves grip. With a lower center of gravity, you can also reduce body roll and choose to use softer springs. Additionally, in the event of a collision, it’s easier to position the engine so that it goes underneath the passenger compartment, rather than into the passenger compartment, for improved safety. That’s not to say the inline four doesn’t have it’s own size advantages. Generally it’s a bit more compact, with only one cylinder head, and it’s not quite as wide as the boxer engine. This leaves more room for suspension geometry, and can also allow for a better steering angle, since the tires won’t have as much of an interference at full lock.

Piston Rings & Blowby - Explained
 
03:51
How do piston rings work? What is blowby? Why are there three piston rings? What do each of the piston rings do? Typically there are three piston rings, and they serve three major purposes. They keep combustion gases from entering the crankcase, oil from the crankcase from entering the combustion chamber, and they aid in heat transfer between the piston and the cylinder walls. The video details these processes, and also sheds light on how blowby occurs, and what happens when piston rings are worn out.

How To Completely Lift A Car On All Four Jack Stands

How To Completely Lift Your Car Off The Ground (All Four Wheels) 2-Ton Jack (Low Profile) - http://amzn.to/2fv0zOK Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Tools Used: 2-Ton Jack (Low Profile) - http://amzn.to/2fv0zOK Jack Stands (2 Ton) - http://amzn.to/2fS7qmi Wheel Chocks - http://amzn.to/2g7GEFQ Related Videos: Honda S2000 Playlist - https://goo.gl/FflSr1 1. To start, make sure the car is on level ground. 2. Apply the parking brake, and place wheel chocks to ensure the car doesn’t roll. Block the rear wheels when lifting the front, and block the front wheels when lifting the rear. 3. Next you’ll need to locate the jacking points; some cars will have one at the front and one in the back. If they don’t, nearly all cars will have jacking points behind each of the front wheels, and in front of each of the rear wheels. You can refer to your owners manual to locate the jacking points. 4. First we’re going to lift the front of the car onto jack stands. If you have a front jacking point, use this, if not you can use the rear jacking points, and slide a jack stand under each side of the front of the car once it’s high enough. This will require jacking both sides of the car, to get both front jack stands underneath. Place jack stands underneath each of the jacking points on the sides up front, and lower the car down onto the jack stands. Remember, you may not want to jack the car to the full desired height; I will be starting at the lowest jack setting because I still need to be able to access the rear jacking point, and I also don’t want to have the jack stands tip over. 5. Now bring the floor jack to the rear of the car, and lift it via the rear jacking point. In this case we’re lifting by the rear differential; often times you can find a tow hook, which can also serve as a jacking point. It’s a good idea to throw a shop rag on top of the jack to ensure that you don’t scratch up the differential casing. 6. Lift up the rear of the car, place the jack stands underneath, and lower the car down onto them. Ideally you want all of the jack stands at the same height, so that the car is level. 7. If you need to raise the vehicle further, do so by incrementally lifting the front and rear to your desired lift height. You simply want to be careful to ensure that the car doesn’t cause the jack stands to tip over. 8. Once you’ve got the car level and all the jack stands adjusted appropriately, give the car a bit of a shake to make sure it’s safe to get underneath. Since I’m paranoid and also enjoy living, I like to place wood blocks underneath each of the wheels as an extra precaution. 9. Now this obviously isn’t necessary if you plan on removing the wheels, and in that case you typically will want to slightly loosen the lug nuts before lifting the vehicle, unless you have an impact wrench available to use.

EE Shirts! - http://bit.ly/2BHsiuo Recommended Books & Car Products - http://amzn.to/2BrekJm Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 If you compare gasoline and diesel models of the same vehicle, the diesel engine tends to have far more torque. Why is this? In this video we'll discuss the major differences between diesel and gasoline engines, that result in the diesel engine producing significantly more torque. From the compression ratio, the speed of combustion, the bore vs stroke ratio, the use of turbocharging, and the energy density of diesel, there are many logical reasons why it's chosen for high torque applications.

How V8 Engines Work - A Simple Explanation

What Is A V8 Engine? Working 3D Printed Chevy LS V8 Engine EE Shirts! - http://bit.ly/2BHsiuo Recommended Books & Car Products - http://amzn.to/2BrekJm Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 3D Printed LS3 Camaro V8 Engine Model: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1911808 V8 engines operates under the same basic principles as any other gasoline four-stroke engine. First the piston pulls in air and fuel as it moves downward, then it compresses that air and fuel as the piston moves upward. A spark plug fires, igniting the air/fuel mixture and forcing the piston downward. Finally the piston pushes out the exhaust gases on its way back up, before for the cycle repeats itself. In a V8 engine, this cycle is happening in 8 different cylinders, at different times. Instead of multiple cylinders firing at the same time, you want them to be spread out so that power delivery is smooth. For this Chevy V8, the firing or is 1, 8, 7, 2, 6, 5, 4, 3. With 8 cylinders, there is a cylinder firing for every 90 degrees of the crankshaft rotating, which means at any point in time, there are two cylinders on the power stroke. With regards to the valvetrain, the intake air comes from the top of the engine, and into the sides of the cylinder head. The exhaust flows to the sides of the engine, exiting the exhaust valves from the cylinder head. In this LS3 model, there is a single intake valve and a single exhaust valve, though it’s also common to see engines with two intake valves and two exhaust valves. The larger valve is the intake valve, and the smaller valve is the exhaust valve. The pushrod valvetrain gets its name from the metal pushrods which activate the rocker arms which open up the valves. The camshaft, located in the center of the V, has lobes on it which push the push rods up, opening the appropriate valves. For a full explanation of V8 engines, check out the video!

How Turbocharger Wastegates Work - Internal Vs External
 
03:22
How do turbochargers wastegates work? What is the difference between internal and external wastegates? Is an external wastegate better than internal? What are the advantages of internal vs external wastegates? Why are wastegates needed in turbocharger applications? Wastegates are essentially bypass valves for exhaust gases to reroute around the exhaust turbine in the event that a peak desired boost is reached to limit the amount of boost an engine creates. The wastegate can be internal to the turbocharger housing, or it can be external. Internal turbos are great for OEM applications, but external wastegates allow for more flexibility with the overall design, and can result in a more productive turbocharger as they can route the exhaust gases further away from the turbo housing.

5 Reasons Pushrod Engines Still Exist

Why Chevy And Dodge Are Still Making Pushrod V8 Engines. EE Shirts! - http://bit.ly/2BHsiuo Recommended Books & Car Products - http://amzn.to/2BrekJm Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Pushrod engines typically use two valves per cylinder, and as a result this engine style is often mocked when used in modern vehicles. Fewer, larger valves results in more reciprocating mass which can lead to valve float, and less airflow at high RPM from the reduced area of the valve openings versus four valves. So why are companies like Dodge still making Hemi engines, and Chevy still making LS engines, both of which are two-valve pushrod setups? Well, simply put, pushrod (OHV) engines have quite a few advantages over their DOHC counterparts. Whether it's the size and compactness of the engine, the simplicity, or the cost, there are real performance benefits to using a two-valve, single cam V engine.

Learn how to change the coolant in your car. Similar videos - https://goo.gl/c8hNRa New videos every Wednesday, subscribe here - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 In the service manual for my 1999 Acura Integra, it recommends replacing the engine coolant every 45,000 miles. Before getting started, the first thing you want to do is make sure your temperature control is on maximum heat. For modern cars this is often an electronic control, so you may need to run the car or at least turn the ignition on beforehand to make sure the heater core is opened up. This will ensure that you replace all of the coolant in your car. Before working on the car in any way, it’s critical that the engine and radiator have completely cooled down - you’ll often see a warning for this on the radiator cap. This video will walk through the process of replacing the fluid.

The whole idea of the engine centers on improving the speed of combustion. If combustion is faster, the engine makes more torque, and it does so more efficiently. So how did they do this? Well there are numerous features of the engine which encourage quick combustion. It starts with a compression ratio of 13:1 for conventional engines, or 14:1 for their engine paired with hybrid vehicles. They've increased the stroke/bore ratio, increased the angle between the intake and exhaust valves, straightened the intake path, and incorporated laser clad valve seats. All this results in combustion that you can watch side-by-side occurring significantly faster versus the previous engine. Engineering Explained is a participant in the Amazon Influencer Program.

How To Change & Inspect Spark Plugs
 
03:40
How To Change & Inspect Spark Plugs. How to change spark plugs in an inline four cylinder engine. Changing plugs in a 1999 Acura Integra is a fairly simple job, however there are some tips along the way worth understanding. There’s several things you’ll want to look for while inspecting spark plugs. The electrode may be worn out, you may often see it rounded rather than flat. You want to check the plug gap, using a simple tool. For my car the recommended gap is 1.1 mm, you can check your owners manual for this information. You want to look for oil fouling or carbon deposits around the spark plug tip. It’s also a good idea to inspect the gasket where the plug seals with the head, and make sure the electrode insulator is not cracked. It’s important to replace the plugs with what the manufacturer recommends. NGK recommends not using any anti-seize compounds on the plugs, as the lubricant may cause the installer to over torque the plug. The NGK plugs have a zinc shell plating that is designed to prevent seizure to the cylinder head, as well as prevent corrosion. Often plugs with a shiny appearance have a special coating, thus not requiring the use of anti-seize. Cheaper plugs with a darkened or dull appearance typically will not have a special plating, and in this case it is recommended to use anti-seize.

Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-DuRqsBQOEk_5o1q4Ze-Fg Why do electric cars only have 1 gear? This is the first of a five part series sponsored by Formula E, who I’ve partnered with to talk about the engineering behind electric cars. I had the opportunity to get behind the scenes at the New York City E-Prix, and was able to chat with team principals, hang out in the engineering rooms during qualifying, and even learn from this year’s champion, Lucas di Grassi. So why do electric cars use just a single gear, rather than using traditional transmissions like you’d find paired with internal combustion engines? Electric motors can get away without numerous gears because they are high revving, remain fairly efficient across a very broad rev range, and produce a great amount of torque at low RPM.

The compression ratio can vary from a highly boosted 8:1 ratio, to an Atkinson-cycle running 14:1 ratio. What this means is the engine can produce significant horsepower by using the low compression ratio with a turbocharger, or it can achieve excellent fuel economy by using a high compression ratio and an efficient engine cycle. Now there aren’t simply to modes the engine runs in, it can vary and run at any compression ratio between 8:1 and 14:1, allowing for optimal performance and efficiency for whatever the driving condition may be. This video will discuss: 1. What is a compression ratio? 2. Why is it beneficial to change the compression ratio? 3. How does the engine alter the compression ratio? 4. What are the advantages of the VC-Turbo engine? 5. What are the balancing characteristics of the VC-Turbo engine? 6. How did INFINITI test this engine for durability and reliability? The VC-Turbo engine will debut in the 2019 INFINITI QX50.

Well, while they both do a wonderful job of increasing and engine's horsepower, they go about it in quite different ways. The turbocharger relies on exhaust gas pressure to spool up a turbine to deliver more air to the engine. A supercharger on the other hand is driven by an engine belt, which rotates a compressor feeding the engine fresh air. While ultimately both will result in more power, there are advantages to each, such as throttle characteristics, efficiency, torque curve characteristics, engine reliability, and packaging. In this video we'll discuss the pros and cons of running a supercharger or a turbocharger on your car. Engineering Explained is a participant in the Amazon Influencer Program.

Can A Tire Have High Grip And Low Rolling Resistance?
 
06:25
Can a tire have high grip and a low rolling resistance? I talk with Michelin at the Shell Eco-marathon Americas to find out! When it comes to designing for efficiency, there are five major forces which a vehicle needs to overcome: aerodynamics, internal friction, gravity, inertia, and finally, rolling resistance. Rolling resistance is the energy consumed by a tire as it travels over a specific distance. Energy is lost as heat when the tire deforms on the road, creating the contact patch, and then returns to its original state as the tire continues to rotate. How much energy is lost is a result of the tire’s hysteresis. The goal is to reduce rolling resistance while still maintaining grip. Silica compounds, first invented by Michelin, have low energy losses in the low frequency range, meaning low rolling resistance, but high energy losses in the high frequency range, meaning they have high grip. As a result, it truly is possible to have tires which exhibit low rolling resistance and yet all the while high levels of grip. Michelin is one of many partners that plays an important role in the Shell Eco-marathon, dedicating a manufacturing plant for two days per year just for making the ultra-low rolling resistance tires used by the teams. The Shell Eco-Marathon is a competition where students around the globe compete to design, build, and test vehicles with the goal of creating a vehicle that goes the furthest distance using as little energy as possible.

10 Reasons Why Engines Lose Power Over Time
 
05:20
Why Do Engines Lose Horsepower As They Get Older? Sponsored by: https://www.AutoTempest.com/ Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 There are four things a gasoline engine requires to generate power and almost any engine problem will come down to something relating to one of these four factors. 1. Air 2. Fuel 3. Compression 4. Spark Dirty Air Filter A clogged air filter makes the engine work harder to pull in air, and can restrict the maximum amount of air let in. Less air means less power. Exhaust Restrictions The engine will have to work harder to push out exhaust gases, limiting power. Catalytic converters can clog up on engines with an improper air/fuel mixture or as a result of fuel additives reacting within. Mufflers can also fail internally, and alterations of the internal piping can result in an airflow restriction. Fuel Injectors Deposits can build up on the injectors over time from heat soak or poor fuel. Small restrictions can cause the O2 sensors to read a lean mixture, and so more fuel will be added to compensate. This can result in a rich mixture for the cylinders without injector problems, or even misfiring if the injector isn’t capable of injecting enough fuel. Fuel Pumps Overtime the fuel pump can wear out, but it might not necessarily fail catastrophically. While it may still be able to supply fuel at lower pressures, it may begin to struggle to provide fuel at higher pressures or for longer durations. Worn Piston Rings One of the major things that can happen over time is the piston rings will wear down, and this will allow for blow-by. Some of the high pressure air and fuel mixture combusting will pass by the pistons and travel along the cylinder walls into the crank case. This is pressure that should be pressing the piston down, so power is lost. It also means less compression as some of the air can escape as the piston travels upward on the intake stroke. Carbon Deposits On Intake Valves/Valve Seats If carbon deposits build up on the valves or valve seats, this can prevent the valves from closing properly. If an intake valve cannot fully close, it will allow air to escape during the compression stroke, effectively lowering the compression ratio. Carbon Deposits On The Piston If deposits build on the piston or cylinder walls, these deposits can create hot spots. These hot spots can result in engine knock if conditions allow for it. If the engine is capable, it will retard the ignition timing to reduce the likelihood of knock. By retarding the ignition timing, power is lost. Fouled Spark Plugs Spark plugs can build deposits with time. Inconsistent spark plug firing means you’re likely to misfire. Maintaining clean plugs ensures that the spark part of the equation doesn’t result in a loss of power.

Wet sump systems tend to have significantly larger pans, with a single oil pump. Dry sump systems have shallower oil pans, with a separate reservoir and two (or more) oil pumps. By relocating the oil reservoir, there are several distinct advantages to a dry sump system: lower CG by using a shallower oil pan, flexible oil capacity - which can lead to improved cooling, and the ability to sustain high g corners without the lubrication system losing oil or pressure.

You may notice however, your real world fuel economy may not always match up with the EPA numbers provided on the vehicle's monroney sticker. Why is this? Well while downsized turbos do have many advantages, such as less moving parts, less weight, better packaging, lower frictional losses, and lower pumping losses, once the vehicles start to get into boost, that efficiency can be significantly lower.

The engine lived on until 1953, until being finally replaced in 1954. What was so special about the flathead V8? Mostly the simplicity of the design. Instead of complicated cylinder heads, they were now simply a single piece of relatively flat metal (flat head). This drove the cost of the engine down, allowing it to be built and sold on a larger scale. The challenge, however, is that the engine suffered from poor airflow, especially at high RPM. In this video we'll discuss the valvetrain, and how the flathead design impedes airflow for high revving, high power engines. Not only was airflow a challenge, but the compression ratio was difficult to increase without further restrictions on airflow. Ultimately, improved technologies replaced the flathead in 1954.

How To Replace Brake Pads And Rotors (Front & Rear)

I’ll be doing some testing to see if this is actually true in a later video. Our first step in changing out the brakes is to loosen the wheel lug nuts. Next, we need to lift the wheels off the ground. Be sure to locate the proper jacking points in your owners manual before lifting the car. With the car raised, we can remove the wheels and access the brakes.Starting at the front, first we need to remove the brake caliper to get access to the rotor. To remove the caliper piston & brake pads, there are two bolts on the backside of the caliper. Use a wrench to hold the caliper pin in place, while using a socket wrench to remove the bolts. After removing these two bolts, you can pull the caliper free - set it aside and be sure not to let it hang from the brake line. You can now also remove the two brake pads. Next, we’ll remove the caliper bracket. There are two screws to remove, and then it can be pulled free. With complete access, now we can start removing the brake rotor. Usually there are two screws which hold it in, which if they’re old will likely be rusted at this point. Using a screwdriver and a mallet or hammer, give the rusted screws several hammer taps to help disturb the rust. Then, using a screwdriver, or perhaps an impact wrench if needed, remove the two screws. If nothing seems to get them to budge, you can simply drill out the screws so they’re no longer fastening the rotor. At this point, the rotor is free to remove, but it’s likely that rust will hold it in place. There are two bolt holes to break it from the rust. Using the bolts from the caliper, screw them into the rotor, and slowly tighten each bolt, alternating back and forth, until the rotor finally breaks away. Before installing the new rotor, spray both sides with brake cleaner to remove any protective oil or residue that may be left on the surface. On the hub where the brake rotor rests, rust can build up, so I’m using a wire brush on a drill bit to remove some of the rust and clean up the hub a bit. Slide the new rotor in place, aligning the orientation with the screw holes. You can use a single lug nut to hold the rotor in place while you assemble the brake caliper. Next we’ll put the brake caliper bracket back in place using the two bolts. Honda’s torque spec for these bolts is 79.6 lb-ft. (108 N-m). With the new brake pads, Honda recommends applying Molykote M77 or Daikalub 528D to the back and sides of the backing plate, as well as on the back of the shims. If your pads came with new hardware, replace the clips in caliper bracket, and then slide the brake pads in place. Make sure not to get any grease on the rotors or pad face. Now we need to push the piston back into the caliper. Before doing so, it’s a good idea to wipe down the surface & exposed sides of the piston. Then place the old brake pad against the piston, and using a brake pad piston compressor, press the piston back into place. It shouldn’t require much effort, and once the effort gets high, the piston is likely flush with the caliper and you can stop. I bought this tool for $8 from Harbor Freight, and it works just fine. Next, be sure the brake caliper pins are lubricated and can rotate freely. It’s a good idea to inspect these and apply grease as necessary. Slide the caliper over the brake pads, and torque down the two bolts to 24 lb-ft (32 N-m). Now we can put the wheel back on, and tighten down the lug nuts. Because the car is lifted, we’ll need to wait until it’s lowered again to apply the correct torque.

Read this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locking_differential Here's a quote from the above article: "An open (or unlocked) differential always provides the same torque (rotational force) to each of the two wheels, on that axle. So although the wheels can rotate at different speeds, they apply the same rotational force, even if one is entirely stationary, and the other spinning. (Equal torque, unequal rotational speed)."

What is a performance clutch? Clutch kit? How does a performance clutch work? A performance clutch basically involves three changes over traditional organic clutches. This video features a Yonaka performance clutch kit. A performance clutch has a higher clamping force on the pressure plate (via the diaphragm spring). Performance clutches use different materials which can absorb less heat and that don't lose performance at higher temperatures. Finally, performance clutches use a "puck" design, 3 puck, 4 puck, 6 puck, which increase the pressure on the friction material, to prevent slip.

Water Methanol Injection - More Boost!
 
04:29
How water methanol injection works. Water methanol injection is used typically on high powered vehicles to assist with reducing the likelihood of knock, and thus allowing for higher compression ratios, more timing advance, and higher boost. Typically mixes are 50/50, with both water and methanol playing important but different roles to help aid in producing more power. Ultimately, the power comes from tuning as running water/meth essentially raises the octane level of the fuel used. There are production cars which have used this in the past.

How Boxer Engines Work - 3D Printed Subaru WRX Engine Boxer-4 Model: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1643878 Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 What is a flat four? What is a boxer engine? This video will explain the benefits of a flat engine, specifically a flat four engine with horizontally opposed pistons. The main advantages of a boxer engine are the primary and secondary engine balance, and the very low center of gravity compared to other engines. H4 engines are one of the best engine designs, however they are more costly than the inline counterpart. The biggest advantage of the boxer engine is the low profile, which keeps the center of gravity low and thus reduces the amount of load transfer you have in the car during braking, cornering, or accelerating, which improves grip. With a lower center of gravity, you can also reduce body roll and choose to use softer springs. Additionally, in the event of a collision, it’s easier to position the engine so that it goes underneath the passenger compartment, rather than into the passenger compartment, for improved safety.

4 Reasons Why The Rotary Engine Is Dead
 
05:13
4 Reasons Why The Rotary Engine Is Dead. The Wankel engine was last seen in a production car in the Mazda RX-8, and currently there are no rotary engines in production. Mazda may bring it back in the RX Vision, however there are many disadvantages to the rotary engine which has kept it from being successful. Rotary engines have a low thermal efficiency as a result of a long combustion chamber and unburnt fuel making it to the exhaust. They also have problems with rotor sealing as a result of uneven temperatures in the combustion chamber since combustion only occurs in one portion of the engine. Oil consumption is also a problem, as oil is injected to add lubrication and help keep the rotor sealed. Finally, emissions are poor and fuel economy is terrible, and ultimately this is the cause of it’s death.

Are stainless steel brake lines better? What are the advantages of steel brake lines? What are the disadvantages of rubber brake lines? The reason people buy steel braided brake lines typically comes down to looks, perceived quality, durability in harsh environments, and firmer brake pedal feel. Rubber brakes, on the other hand, can also have a firm brake feel, are cheaper and effective, are not abrasive, and are easier to inspect.

How Volvo Is Eliminating Turbo Lag
 
03:35
PowerPulse, Superchargers, and Electric Motors Kill Turbo Lag Turbo Lag vs Boost Threshold - https://youtu.be/cKvOEZ7JCJc Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 From The Volvo Press Kit: "Turbo lag. If the term is unfamiliar, there’s a high chance you have still encountered this common powertrain affliction. This is the experience with many turbocharged engines, when there’s a delay between the driver pressing the throttle and the engine responding as it waits for the turbine to supply its performance boost. Volvo’s D5 twin-turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine, however, features an ingenious solution. It combines an electrically driven compressor and a pressurised air tank to ensure immediate, on-demand acceleration. When the driver requests rapid momentum by pressing harder on the throttle pedal, compressed air from the tank is released into the exhaust system feeding the turbo to quicken response. And because Volvo’s Drive-E powertrains are engineered to deliver efficient power, the PowerPulse technology is a performance benefit that doesn’t come at the expense of fuel consumption. The D5 twin-turbo diesel engine with PowerPulse is currently available on Volvo’s 90-series models, including the XC90, S90, and forthcoming V90 Cross Country."

Throttle Cable Adjustment - Project Integra
 
01:49
Mechanical throttle cables can get loose overtime on cars. In this video I'll tighten the throttle cable on my 1999 Acura Integra. It's a very quick, easy adjustment, and can remove dead band from your gas pedal, where you press the pedal but it has no influence on the throttle control. So long as the cable is not super loose, you should still be able to reach WOT, and thus this should not affect performance, but it's nice to have the gas pedal immediately respond.

Why Are 4 Valves Better Than 2? DOHC vs OHV
 
03:21
Why are 4 valves per cylinder better than 2 valves per cylinder? Is DOHC better than OHV? 4 valves per cylinder allows for more airflow than 2 valves per cylinder, as there is larger open area when the valves are open. Having a configuration with DOHC and four valves per cylinder means better airflow, especially at high engine speeds, resulting in better top end power. Though it is possible to run 4 valves per cylinder with a pushrod setup (OHV), it's far more common to run 2 valves due to the complication of the packaging requirements associated with a four valve setup. The main advantages of a multi-valve head is that it allows for more airflow through greater coverage, placement of the spark plug in the center of the head for better flame propagation leading to greater efficiency, and it greatly reduces valve float at higher RPM through the use of smaller, lighter valves with less reciprocating inertia. With the prevention of valve float, engines can rev higher and produce more power. The advantages of two valves per cylinder is a reduction of parts, thus saving cost and complexity. The design also tends to be better for low and mid range torque as the airflow is faster at these engine speeds as a result of a more restricted flow. Also, OHV engines allow for central placement of the camshaft within the V of V8 engines, meaning a smaller package and lower CG.
