  3. Re: wow thats a real output for a flat-4

    0-60 in 2.7 sec. with an inline 4?! THAT ABSOLUTLY AMAZING!!!! I'd love to see some of the technology involved with that engine!!!
     
  4. Re: wow thats a real output for a flat-4

    There is a big difference between inline an flat.
    Inline is all in a single row, flat is like a 180 deg V engine.

    Nothing spectacular, I can ensure you that. It's just a matter of turbo pressure. I've seen the VAG 1.8T boosted to 584hp.

    I've seen cosworth pump 800hp out of a 4!!! It's an IRL engine. Besides it all comes down to compression. It is possible to add 20lbs of pressure or "boost" to a one cylinder tractor engine. What makes it possible it the amount of money you have. There are also many different techniques used in creating more compression, such as, higher compression heads, intake manifold, exaust ports, "pop up" pistons, different cam's. It is a combination of these things that makes this car go 0-60 in 2.7,. Superchargers can be made to be giants.

    In the seventies de rules for formula 1 were different. Turbochargers were allowed back then. BMW made an unbeatable F1 car with a 1,5L inline-four. The power output of this car was astonishing: 1200 bhp.
    Later on, turbochargers were forbidden and so was this great engine.

  11. Re: wow thats a real output for a flat-4

    Ive seen extensively (around $100,000) modified evos pulling 600hp from a 4. As peoplehave pointed out its all about "boost." I own an STi with 400hp with just a computer change and boost controller. IM looking into exaust systems and stuff atm. Some stage I'll prolly go a larger turbo. Its all about boost.
     
  12. Re: wow thats a real output for a flat-4

    Everything you say is true... For such a small engine, that is some real power!
     
  13. Re: wow thats a real output for a flat-4

    Does anyone know why they only made one of this car? I would definitely like to know why!

  18. Re:

    any major power difference between a inline and a flat?
     
  19. What I wanna see is how long the engine can take the strain before breaking.
