Good point! I will try to remember including that bit of information on one of the following videos.

Next video is up!


PART 3: Advanced Turbocharging


On this video we will power tune the previous engine from 150 to 200 horsepower, in other words from 75 hp per litre to 100 hp per litre.
We are not changing any parts on the engine while doing so, and we do not touch quality sliders so we can clearly see what each tuning aspect does in practice.

One side note on this last build: for simplicity's sake I did not combat the reduced reliability we experience with the engine after the power tune. We are closing in on
the design limitations of a 2-valve carbureted engine - to improve reliability in this particular build, you could look into switching to fuel injection and/or fitting
forged connecting rods.

Next video will likely be about low tech vs. high tech - to help choose design elements and components of your engine build based on need rather than want.

Re: My Video Guide Series on How to Tune and Optimize an Eng

Looking to upload the next video within the next day or two; the topic will be how to choose engine technologies on an engine build and how much of a difference high tech solutions actually make.

What do you think should be the next topic after that? How to setup VVL? Ultra eco engine? Supercar engine? Or something else?

VVL, because you'll need it for making an Eco Engine that makes decent power.

Cool! VVL it is. Hopefully I'll have the time to do the next two videos during the holidays. Thanks for helping with your comments, guys!

Just to let you guys know - the video series will be updated soon (I've been having severe migraine for a while hence no updates....)
