What a fab engine. If only Audi would put in something driver focused aimed at the enthusiast! ;)

wish they would build the quattro :(

maybe this will be it

How about a RS-TT-RS or an RS3-RS with the tag line vorsprung durch aufregend

How about they build something that isn't fundamentally flawed out of the box so that they have to rescue it's dynamic reputation by making a Super Duper No It's Really Awsume Edition that they'll sell twelve of so they can claim they had a decent handling car once?

back to the original post, can anybody explain how this works? Paging Mr. Rainbird.

In a totally unrelated point, has anyone else noticed/been amused by the fact that this is thread number 90210 :)

Cheers, Rich

It's some form of lean burn technology combined with a chargecooling arrangement that lowers the intake temps to -20°C :shock:.

Basically the shape of the pistons and a specialised intake system allows them to run the engine at a much leaner mixture process that is supposed to be so efficient, that it reduces the burn temperature so dramatically (exhaust gas temp figures of 590°C, compared to 1200°C of a normal engine of this power level), that a radiator is no longer needed :shock:.

The intake is what intrigues me the most, as it looks like it is this that drops the intake temp to -20°C. Obviously this must take a large amount of energy to achieve as it must be some sort of refrigeration unit.

Nordschleife - there's only two barriers to worry about - the ones on the left and the ones on the right!

I would like to see them on the ford 1.25 engine.

200 bhp, 0-60 in under 7 seconds and over 70 mpg would be pretty amazing!

That would indeed be interesting to see, to keep our temps to 20 degrees in the summer our cooling units had to be run off a 3 phase supply :lol:

I just don't believe it. Air temperatures are too low. In order to get that, you'll need to spend a great amount of energy to cool it down, and there goes your global efficiency.

A freezer takes quite some time to get a stationary volume of air at 20ºC or so to something like -6ºC. But in an engine we are talking about fast-moving, hot air.

Thanks Mike! That sounds pretty wild, and like KAD said, near impossible.

Don't confuse lifeless steering with lack of ability.

I'm obsessed with this engine:lol:

I spent 3 hours searching for info about this with no conclusion.

My guess is that they're trying to sell this technology to some car maker for a very high price and after that, the guys who bought will discover a bunch of problems with it, making it impracticable.

Must be nice to work on a nice clean new engine - no seized bolts etc

The Evo forum really is a shadow of its former self. I remember when the internet was for the elite and now they seem to let any spastic on.
