but he IS selling, he has patented it so any use of it would have to be purchased (rights) from him.FWombat said:Hmm...very interesting. It's got a bit of a snake oil feel to it because it's so simple, but he's not selling anything, so who knows?
After looking through all his examples, it looks like the basic idea is to cut a groove from the main combustion chamber into the thin "squish" area. On our heads, you'd probably want two grooves - one starting between the exhaust valves, and one starting between the intake valves.
Like this Celica head, which was the only 4 valve example I could find that was similar to our heads: http://somender-singh.com/content/view/42/37/
I wonder though, if a sharp edge on the groove might make for a hot spot in the combustion chamber and make the head less boost-friendly? Maybe if you smoothed out the edges...
I dunno...from what I gather, he'd like to sell his idea to large companies. But he's got a forum going where he actively gives out free advice to folks and laying out his ideas. Usually snake-oil type stuff (like that damn tornado intake thing!) works the opposite way: they try to sell straight to individuals.Import Power said:but he IS selling, he has patented it so any use of it would have to be purchased (rights) from him.
Just saw the vid, using a dull saw blade with no handle is probably much more efficient than using a new 2$ blade. I suppose he also bored out his cylinders with sandpaper and welded his center diff with JB Weld. This shows you to never buy a car from another country.Bringin back a thread from the dead!
