Re: Help us out: The massive engine specs quest!

I've added the 1.6l Mazda NA Miata engine and the 1.8l NB Miata engines. Newer ones are Ford/Mazda motors that are covered already I believe.
Also, what about using weight and redline (rpm) as additional fields? I'd imagine that a lighter motor that puts out less may sometimes be useful.

Awesome work - thanks guys and gal!

Re: Help us out: The massive engine specs quest!

I just added the specs of the BMC B-series engine as it is found in my MG. I hope it's of any use. I'll see if I can find any dyno sheets of the engine. I hope I can be helpful, I just found out about your game and it is pretty much the game I have been hoping for for many years!

Re: Help us out: The massive engine specs quest!

I think it need to be made abit clearer for people on the very first post as alot of people seem to be missing it. Larger red lettering anyone? ;) (I keep seeing V8's and V6's added getting added...).

Im assuming its ok to delete all non 4 cylider engines from the list (or just put them in there own seperate section at the bottom)?

Re: Help us out: The massive engine specs quest!

I'll add all the modern Renault I4 petrols later (there are a lot missing right now and I have all the Renault dealer technical documentation :D) - I just had one query, what to do where there are several variations on engines? For example, the F3P 1.8 8v came in distributor ignition + SPI, coil pack + SPI and coil pack + MPI plus a variation with more aggressive cams and a larger throttle body in the Clio RSi and the later F4x DOHC engines come in two different VVT versions (fixed activation at 1400RPM and infinitely variable in the later ones) and one non-VVT version with different power curves. I didn't want to list them by their specific designation (e.g. F4P-770, the engine in my current car) because these are model/application specific so the same engine might have several codes.

Re: Help us out: The massive engine specs quest!

Well I figured I'd add my help to this project.

I added the:

Ford Modular V8-V10 Engine Line (4.6L V8 - 6.8L V10) including the 5.0L "Coyote"
Ford-Yamaha SHO V8
Ford Essex (Canadian) V6 Engine Line
Ford 1980's 2.3L and 2.5L Inline 4
Ford Vulcan 3.0L V6
Aston Martin V12
TVR Speed Twelve Engine V12 (Limited Specs)

I will add more as I get time.
I look forward to getting the demo and full version as they are released.
