Project Racer Part 11: Grip Addiction; We Install Progress Sway Bars

By Annie Sam

Modificum Racerium – a chronically debilitating disease which is characterized by the irrationally obsessive addiction to car modification and speed. “More!” we keep chanting, as we illogically pass up hot meals for cup o noodle in order to quell this addiction by buying more upgrades for our soon to be NASA PTD car.

Project Nissan Sentra Spec-V Part 7: Installing a Turbo System

Project Nissan Sentra Spec-V Part 7: Installing a Turbo System

By Mike Kojima

Since the long stroke QR25DE does not like high rpm, we have chosen to limit its maximum revs to 7000 rpm and make power by adding turbo boost.  Jim Wolf Technology designed our turbo system to produce power over the widest possible range of RPM rather than peak power.  The JWT system was also designed for simplicity, lightness and reliability over maximum power.

With the specter of high prices once again looming over our heads, we bring you yet another fuel sipping project; Project Aprilia RS50.  You might wonder what an RS50 is; it is really a very unusual machine.  It is a street legal, two stroke 50cc GP replica bike.

Project Ducati Hypermotard Part III: Protection

By Jeff Naeyaert

It was bound to happen sooner or later, while riding Project Ducati Hypermotard; we had the unfortunate opportunity to crash the bike.  Although it was a very minor low side while going slow, our bike got off really lightly thanks to some crash protection we had the foresight to install and what got damaged allowed us to put a few more cool new bits on the bike.

Project Sipster Part 6 - Faster Sipster

by Dave Coleman

 

If you want a Diesel to make more power, you just have to squirt in more fuel. If you've never tuned an engine before, this is the most obvious thing in the world. But if you're used to tuning gas engines, this is the most preposterously naive and wrong-headed thing we've said in at least a week. Diesels, it seems, are a bit different.

UPDATE! I just found the dyno chart!


 

4 Stroke cycle- the power stroke, igntion timing

Suck, Squish, Bang, Blow Part Six:  Ignition Timing Basics

By Mike Kojima

Ignition Timing is expressed as the number of degrees of crankshaft rotation in advance of Top Dead Center or TDC, when the sparkplug is fired.  This kicks off the explosion of air and gasoline that pushes the piston down to drive the crank.  Since even explosions take a few milliseconds to develop, the engine’s ECU usually commands the sparkplug to fire a few degrees of crank rotation before TDC.

Ask Sarah ITB VS Carbs VS Single Throttle body

Ask Sarah: What's Your Intake?

By Sarah Forst

Hi Sarah, 

I'm debating going carbs or ITB's with EFI.  What is the advantage to using carbs over EFI?  How do ITB's perform over a single TB?

Turbo: Once Round the Block

by Eric Hsu

Two videos after the jump of the development process of the 1986 Cosworth GBA 1.5L V6 engine. The video also covers the development of the ECU and car, but what interested me more was the 4 cylinder Cosworth BD that was built as a tester on the engine dyno and its failure mode. This was before the time of CAD, FEA, CFD, and all that computer mumbo jumbo. 25 years ago it was all about your past experience and empirical testing which is a lot closer to how things are done in most parts of the tuning parts market today.
