Engine Recreation Thread

Since ConeDodger isn't doing his engine recreation series anymore, I need my real engine fix. So, I built a series of engines from real cars. I will post them on here.

Anyone can post these engines on this thread.

First, an F150 5.4 Triton engine; the engine I have in my own truck, albeit much less powerful due to this one being stock

Re: Engine Recreation Thread

Hi!
I've tried to emulate an H4J-A700 from Renault, engine that goes in my Megane 1.4TCe.
Not a crazy stuff but an interesting 'downsized engine'; 1.4l Inline 4 plus a little turbo (without DI).

Don't know the turbo specs so I've focused on the power curve...

Image

The emissions also will not match with the original values (153 g/km).

Re: Engine Recreation Thread

Looking for help with my datsun z engines (see posts above), http://zhome.com/History/zcarperf.html the power figures are during the gross to net change over and I'm trying to figure out approximately how much power these cars really made when I redo the 280z tonight.

Re: Engine Recreation Thread

Here's a half-decent attempt to recreate GM's LS7.

Before one of you gets on my butt for quality slider abuse, let me do some math and compare.
Chevy sells the LS7 as a crate engine for $17,129 (U.S.) Online.
I'll use an average rate of 20$ per production hour.
314.2 production hours times 20 = $6284 in man hours
Material costs is $2094.33. 6284 plus 2094.33 = $8378.33.
So this engine's production cost is about half the price that Chevy sells it at. Seems realistic, doesn't it?

I know this engine wasn't made in 2014,
but if i select a date below it then valve lift becomes severe.
Of course at dates like 2008, setting the quality of the heads until valve lift is not a problem nearly quadruples the man hours,
making it unrealistic. Having no tech pools makes me have to set the date higher as a workaround.
In addition I have no control over little tidbits in the intake, block, heads,
and exhaust headers because Automation isn't THAT in depth.

How do you all think i did?
You can compare this to the real thing at:

Re: Engine Recreation Thread

Here is my collection of Small-Block Chevy's from the beginning to the end.

With the exception of the 302, these are all cast log, pushrod, overhead valve carburated engines running regular leaded gasoline and have at least one muffler installed. A couple of them still require some tweaking, as well.

Re: Engine Recreation Thread

That's pretty impressive. Nice job!
Soon, I will try to post a couple comparable ford engines.

Re: Engine Recreation Thread

So, I've been on a bit of a BMW kick of late. I have a number of BMW engines, 4 cylinder, 6 cylinder, and a few V8's, N/A and Turbo. Lets give them a look! Since none of these engines are actually mine, I will include them to download for your own game, of course!

First, the V8's. All of these are MPFI, I hope, except the S63 which is HPI (direct injected). S63 was really tough since I am not good at tuning turbo engines. Maybe someone else can do a better job than I did. It also has a normal twin-turbo instead of the cross-engine intake and exhaust manifolds used in the real car, which probably isn't as much of a factor as my poor tuning skills.

The official CO2 values doesn't match with the reality (the real TCe CO2 is 150-155 g/km), similar with the fuel consumption.
