V-8 ITB's, IR induction pictures... Caution, NOT WORK SAFE!!! Induction porn!

Recommended Posts

How could I forget Kevins most incredible modular inductions systems??? Please accept my apologies Kevin. That was not intentional.

Ron, either you learned how to touch up photos to near perfect status since the last time we exchanged email (what... a week ago?!), or that car is absolutely SPOTLESS.

 

where'd u have to stand for the first shot, anyway? u have a mono pod with a double-wrist mount?

Nope... not me. That car was insanely clean.

I just held the camera up and pressed the PHD button :mrgreen: It helps to be 6'-4" :wink:

OK...What!!! a W9

Thomas Johansson has been working toward a Master of Science degree in Engineering at the Lulea University of Technology in Sweden. Looking for an appropriate project for his thesis he decided to design and build a complete internal combustion engine from scratch to run on E85. Of course, he didn’t just build an inline 4 or V8 or anything so mundane, instead, he chose a W9 design, a nine cylinder engine with three banks of 3 cylinders each. After lots of CAD work and finite element analysis, the engine was made real. From first sketch to complete engine required 13 months.

The engine is aimed at installation in a mid engined sports car where the compact dimensions and low center of gravity are advantageous. The power output is 526 hp (est) at 10,700 rpm, torque 280 foot pounds (est) at 7200 rpm and the engine is dimensioned to allow installation of a tri-turbo for a projected output of 1005 horsepower! The engine displaces 182 cubic inches and weighs 262 pounds complete with exhaust, … very impressive.

 

 

 

Cool stuff!

Hope that's not too much

NEVER too much!!! You sure landed in this thread with a splash! :D

 

I think this engine is probably one equipped with the Coates spherical "valvetrain" (forgetting the more precise terminology for it) and those things are just so COOL on paper... no clue how things actually work out, but I remember thinking when I first heard about it that it might just be capable of revolutionizing some things. Naive impressions of a fifteen year old :rolleyesg

 

 

 

as for the W9... :shock:

Quoted and re-posted for posterity because its OH so awesome of a quote....

OTM's daily quote:

 

"It was found that a quick and prolonged G characteristic can be obtained under wide-open throttle operation."

 

~Found in one of Nissan's VH45DE SAE papers

Driveshaft?!!?

 

We don't need no steeenking driveshaft!!!!

 

Wouldn't that make it a 918? :D THAT is a 914 I would scoot around in!!!

 

Actually its a 914-8.

 

Don't ask me why I'm looking at V8 mid engine cars... and don't look at my sig...

There are several guys with 500+hp SBC's hooked up to a 930 trans in the back of a 914.

Not much better than a huge motor with an intake ~16" from your ear.

They are a little heavy stock, about the same as a 280Z.
