Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 150k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Go to solution Solved by techswede,

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

@vinyldash303 I heard the sound of a mail van drive past me and I thought of you lol I actually like the put-put noise they make from their little engines haha

The mail vans in the US are based off the s10 platform. They use the iron duke engine.

Nah, that was long ago back when Nintendo had forums. They had chat threads in the offtopic forums and they'd fly. Easily 10post/5mins.

the easy and simple proof that I'm right is as easy as looking at a turbo compressor map

 

pick a pressure ratio and look at the air flow on the 2 maps below.  its simple, same pressure, different air flow.  learn to admit when you're wrong, you'll get much further in life

gt28rscompress.gifgt45compress.jpg

 

 

edit:

turbo being less maintenance then a sc is complete bs also

 

edit 2:

you also misunderstood what I meant by fine throttle control.  I don't mean boost control, I mean my foot controlling how much power is being put down to the wheels.  turbo's have amazing boost control with modern wastegates and electronics, but a positive displacement blower is a lot closer to an NA engine then a turbo as far as throttle control is concerned

 

I'm not wrong on this. I know what I'm talking about. I know that pressure and volume flow are two different things. You're not understanding what I'm saying and I don't really care to try explaining it again.  

 

Turbos ARE less maintenance. Far less moving parts, all they need is oil and coolant and they can last for a VERY long time. SC's have gears, rotors, shafts, bearings, pulleys etc. 

 

About throttle control; sure I get what you're saying and that is true. Never denied it. 

 

You know, you don't need to resort to personal attack. Doesn't add anything to the discussion, it just makes people not want to talk to you.

It was fun until they banned chat threads. Soon after everybody left and they shut down the forums lol.

Wonder how a Tesla would do in the flood...

Interesting. Very interesting....

 

Edit: researched and found that the battery would flood and die. I guess combustion engine is the go-to for luxury flood mobiles.

it would do just as fine as any other car

The model S has a flat bottom. Might even skip on the surface a bit if you hit it fast enough

Gasoline $1.55 here today at the cheapest place....

For me it's $2.09 though if I want to continue running non-ethanol... Kind of not cool since you only get a ~6% boost (factoring in that ethanol contains 40% less energy with 15% of normal gas being ethanol) in mpg and have to pay 10% more ($1.89ish for chevron/shell) than a good quality gas. (Still worth it though considering my car just flat out runs better)

At least I don't have to use premium fuel haha. But I guess it's sort of like I'm paying for premium fuel at the cheapo places

Someone in my area has a red Shelby GT500 and it's in one of the local mechanics' shops...

It's really clean with the 50th Anniv commemorative plate...

It's been at the shop for about a month now... not sure why...
