So do you think there is nothing to learn from a v8? Why exactly is their bigger air pump different than your smaller air pump? I would tend to believe people that build pro stock motors (the pinnacle of naturally aspirated) over some guys on ht.
Yeah, Don Flores, JDogg from Rocket Motorsports, Chris Whitfield from Rage Racing, Earl Laskey (R.I.P.), ect. are just random dudes on the internet without any practical experience. Those guys sucks.
I learned a lot about engines from V8s. Then I moved to Hondas, started talking to the guys who've devoted their lives to them, and learned that these are different monsters. I'm going to repeat something I've said before, why don't you go talk to some professional head porters if you want a greater understanding.
So why again is the magical number 12:1. What happens at 12.5:1 that was so different? What if I build my a6 to 11.9:1? Am I safe to run on pump gas?
I don't remember saying anywhere that it wasn't safe. I said you'd make the same power with lower compression because you wouldn't have to pull as much timing. And since I think your next statement was total bullshit, you should try understanding what you read before you mouth off.
In the world of internet forums, there are those that do and those that listen to people that haven't done.
I heard the same thing about stock fuel lines in a foxbody cannot support more than 450rwhp. I saw them support 800rwhp on a twin t3/t4 352" windsor. I heard that the stock TFI distributor cannot run past 7000 or support 600fwhp. I saw a car make over 900 to the tires (On 93 octane!) with a 363 and a precision 88mm turbo and a FAST xfi. Just recently someone told me that ported stock mustang heads (E7TE) cannot flow enough to make power past 4600 rpm, regardless of what was done to them. I built a very budget 347 that made 300rwhp from 4700 to 5800 and 360rwtq off idle with only $2800.
The point is this: if it is within reason, and is mathematically sound, then why does someone's brother's cousin say it cannot be done?
Reading comprehension, the ability to understand what you read.
Not once did I say it wouldn't work. Not once. You jumped way off the deep end there junior.
I have a question. What is it with you guys and opinions
that go against your popular D-Series grain? Jesus fucking Christ guys, there are actually people outside of this forum who know what they're talking about. Believe it or not. In fact, there are even people who do this for a living and win professional race after professional race with the engines they build and/or tune. Some even have their own dynos. But what the fuck do they know, they post on Honda-Tech right? Completely forget the fact that the guys I'm talking about, not your average user, have forgotten more about engine building than most of us have learned.
