enzo help!

  1. Why such a small air-intake on the enzo?
  2. Because you touch yourself at night.
  3. what do you mean "Drift King"?
  4. Has to do with engine setup, a the intake is engineered for maximum intake velocity for peak power.
  5. He's Reparded, just ignore him
  6. thanks for the info kx Killer.
  7. not large enough to suck in an adult male, only a child perhaps, so its small
  8. You dont want the intake air to have high velocity, you want it to have high pressure. So no, it is the opposite of what you said.
  9. Im talking about the front 996 911 turbo.
  10. What the hell? The entire front end is an air intake.
  11. The only way to increase pressure is by a forced induction system. you want high velocity so that there is air entering the engine at high RPMs or else you will end up with an extremely high vacuum condition, the engine running pig rich and finally, the engine has to really labour to pull air in.
  12. If I remember correctly, the two outboard front intakes are for the radiators, the central one is for the venturi under the body.
  13. The engine is in the back stupid.
  14. then what is the purpose for the air intake in the front?Anwser me that Drift King.
  15. I'll answer it myself. It's for cooling the radiator, which is mounted in the front of the car I believe.
  16. Ask Ferrari you stupid ass f*ck.
  17. Radiator and underbody venturi.
  18. This thread is really dumb, seriously.
  19. I honestly thought it was a decent question, comments like that from drift queen make it dumb.
  20. 1 - the air vents on the enzo arent small.

    that sorta makes the question rather silly.
  21. Unless you stick your intake in a point of major stagnation at the back of the car, you will get all the mass flow you need due to the vacuum effect that the intake produces.
    "Has to do with engine setup, a the intake is engineered for maximum intake velocity for peak power."
    If you are trying to produce peak power, you want to recover as much pressure loss within the intake as possible, manifolds are always under a vacuum condition.
  22. Lol, well, it does if you forget where the air intakes are <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
  23. Correct, there is always a vacuum. caused by the throttle body. Too much vacuum and the engine has to labour to pull air in. Too much air and you get heavy turbulence in you intake reducing power. This is why a large throttle body gets poorer low end torque. To recover the presure loss, you need an air flow to replace that air. Some cars, whith the intake at the rear actually do get good air flow, if you ever see a wind tunnel test (I did this for a physics experiment using scale models) and the air actually curls down at the notchback and into the intake. The air flow is quite excellent.
