Hot VWs Magazine: Brian Hyerstay's 1668cc 4-Cam Dyno Test #2
Originally built for a NHRA G/Dragster, this engine is based on a VW Type 1 case, then fitted with a billet pair of 4-cam, hemi heads, feed by a pair of 52mm throttle bodies. It was built by Oregon's Brian Hysterstay, and runs on gas, is not turbo-charged, or Nitrous-injected. Compression is 16.0:1, and peak power was obtained at 10,600 rpm! It produced 255hp at the flywheel. Dyno test was run July 9, 2012. Video provided by Hot VWs Magazine, Costa Mesa, CA. www.hotvws.com

How To Solve Honda Idle Problems - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
Before posting questions about Honda idle problems please read this:
The viewers have chosen and this weeks video will be about solving Honda
idle problems. I'm really not surprised as I get a lot of questions and
requests about this very subject. Here are the links I promised in the
video that will help you address specific issues mentioned in the video.
How To Bleed a Cooling System
How to Check for Vacuum Leaks
Reading Check Engine Light Codes
Diagnosing an Overheat
Hopefully when your done checking all that stuff out you will have solved
your Honda's idle problem, if not leave a comment or send me a message and
I'll see what I can do just make sure you have tried all the stuff in the
videos first as that saves me from typing so much.
I also want to add my "Idle Speech" into the mix here:
There are a lot of things that can contribute to an idle issue, in fact in
the end it may still be there to some degree because of the nature of that
engine however here are some things to start with.
First start with a good tune up, use NGK or Nippon Denso plugs, don't
change the wires if they are OE, if they aren't OE you might consider NGK
wires as they are very good and less expensive then OE. A quality cap and
rotor should be good. A new air filter also helps.
Don't change the PCV valve, if you see an aftermarket PCV valve in there
put a Honda in, believe it or not I've seen idle issues caused by
aftermarket PCV valves, the OE's last just about forever so you can easily
justify the expense.
Next a good valve adjustment, this goes a long way to smooth out the idle
if done correctly, mess it up and things can get a lot worse though.
While you have the valve cover off check the timing belt tension, if you
feel a lot of slack this can cause the cam to 'chunk' as it spins causing a
rough idle. If you think the belt has been on there for some time then
you might consider changing it and resetting the tension properly, if it's
not ready for replacement you can reset the tension to take up the slack.
DO NOT adjust the idle screw under any circumstances, it is set at the
factory and that is the reason it was sealed in the first place. If you
find that the seal has been broken and you have a low idle and you have
done all of the above then you might turn the screw out a little to see if
that helps the idle but only enough to try and bring it back to where it
was before it was adjusted in the first place.
Last clean the screen in the Idle Air Control valve, this can get clogged
up with carbon over time and cause the flow through it to be restricted
which can cause idle issues.
If you still have a 'rough' idle after all of this THEN look to the engine
mounts as you want to be sure the engine is running correctly before you go
for those as the one in the back is a real pain to replace.

1957 VW OVAL RAT ROD BUG HOT ROD VOLKSWAGEN
Not just another rusty VW with a stinger. This one has a full automatic
transaxel from a Type 3 and a 2054cc engine to push it down the road. Built
largely with left overs and unwanted parts from other projects collected
over the years and a whole lot of help from my friends in the Omaha
Volkswagen Club. That's VW hot rodding!

My DRD VW 2276 Engine on the dyno
Here's my new DRD Racing Heads built 2276cc air-cooled, naturally-aspirated
VW engine. On this pull it made 201 HP at 6k. It also made 176 ft lbs of
torque at 6k. Should move my light bug through the quarter in 12 seconds.
VW TSI ENGINE ANIMATION
Following the success of its TDI and FSI engines, Volkswagen is launching
the latest in a line of pioneering inventions with the introduction of TSI
FSI uses the direct injection of petrol into the combustion chamber to
improve efficiency and hence reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Taking
this further, TSI uses -- for the first time ever -- an FSI engine which is
then dual-charged through a combination of an engine driven Supercharger and an Exhaust gas turbocharger arranged in series.
The driving characteristics of the new TSI engine are improved over those
of the current FSI unit. The belt-driven Supercharger operates at the lower engine speeds,
with the turbocharger coming in as
engine speed increases. The result of this is excellent driveability and
performance throughout the range with no turbo lag and high maximum torque.
Key to the TSI's success is that direct injection allows an abnormally high
compression ratio of 10:1 to be used in conjunction with high maximum Boost pressure of up to 2.5 bar
absolute. This enables the relatively small engine to use very high
gearing to provide exceptional fuel efficiency for a petrol engine,
particularly at motorway cruising speeds. As an additional bonus, the TSI
engine provides driver enjoyment, producing high power and torque across a
rev range from 1,000 to 6,500 rpm.
The new TSI engine has a capacity of 1.4-litres (1,390 cc) and produces
either 140 or 170 PS. The 170 PS version has the same peak power as a
conventional 2.3-litre petrol unit but with 20 per cent lower fuel
onsumption, returning 38.2 mpg on the combined cycle. It also produces
impressive torque of 177 lbs ft (240 Nm) from 1,750 through to 4,500 rpm.
All TSI engines drive through a manual six-speed gearbox. A DSG automatic
option is also available with the 170 PS engine. This will be offered later
in the year with the 140 PS unit.
TSI technology has already received international acclaim, having been
named Best New Engine of 2006 in the International Engine of the Year
Awards. It also won the 1-litre to 1.4-litre category.
