With three days to pull the engine, rebuild it and reinstall, is Charles R Hill from Black Halo Racing (BHR) up to the task?! View the video to see what we find when the engine with 51,000 miles is pulled.
More details and photos of this rebuild can be seen at:
PS: I admit I didn't hold the camera stable enough for the first day of footage. Gave me a damn headache editing the footage.
Synchronic BOV on Turbo RX-8, part 2
This clip shows the anti stall valve. The rest of the video came from the
first video, but it's shortened down and to the point.
Turbocharged RX-8 with TurboXS RFL BOV
Just installed the RFL (really fcking loud) BOV. It is loud, but has a nice
rush of air sound to it. Next week I'll have a really unique BOV installed
Triple boost 450hp 2L engine by Volvo
Triple Boost Technology takes
Volvo’s four-cylinder Drive-E Powertrain petrol engine to 450hp
Further proof of Volvo’s commitment to delivering driving pleasure
Volvo delivers a unique combination of performance and efficiency with the
High Performance Drive-E Powertrain Concept – a triple Boost 2.0-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine with
no less than 450hp. Following the successful introduction of Volvo’s
Drive-E Powertrain range in 2013, Volvo’s powertrain team once again
demonstrates its technological leadership in emission-reducing turbo technology.

The 450hp High Performance Drive-E Powertrain Concept is based on a set of
technologies not usually found in a four-cylinder engine. The engine
utilises two parallel turbochargers,
which are fed by an electrically powered turbo-compressor. The compressed air from this
unit, rather than being fed to the cylinders, is instead used to spool up
the two parallel turbochargers. Fuel is
fed by a dual fuel pump working at 250 bar pressure. With this kind of
power density, this triple Boost
installation and unique fuel system, enables a very dynamic drivability
without any turbo lag, compared to a
50psi boost 1200+hp Nissan RB30 - Ethanol E98
Nissan RB30 SOHC 3L engine built and tuned by JPC making over 1200hp on
Ethanol fuel. The engine still retains a factory block and crank.
Improvements come from a custom JPC turbocharger, manifolding, roller rockers and cam
gear. Fuel is fed via ID2000cc injectors and an Autronic computer system.
This engine has previously run 8.79 at 160.25mph (with less power) in a
full weight (3250lb) Holden VL commodore through stock suspension,
Powerglide transmission, 9in rear end and 28x9in slicks.

Mazda RX8 Stock Top Speed
Stock except of K&N air filter.
Top speed here only 239km/h (I've seen 250 some time ago without video);
nevertheless, a great car for country roads and daily drive!
Recommendations for RX8:
Do change spark plugs and coils if needed; it makes a difference.
Buy a bigger starter motor if you still have the small one (early models).
New Nissan Juke 1.6 Liter Turbo Engine - ANIMATION - Very Cool Video
Watch a video on the new 1.6 liter 4 cylinder turbocharged engine in the new Nissan Juke. The
video is animated and systematically show the engine in pieces and then
puts it together and shows how it runs. The 1.6 turbo is part of the wave of new small
displacement turbocharged gas engines
coming to this country. The reason is to provide high fuel economy, low
emissions and high power output when needed.
Part 7: My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration - Intake and Exhaust Porting
Has it been nearly a month since my last episode? Wow, time does indeed
fly. I've been quite busy preparing to build the engine. So in part 7, I
cover the intake and Exhaust porting.
The engine is being built with GSL-SE 6 port plates and the Cosmo rotor
housings as the basis for a 6 port turbo
setup. This port job is fairly conservative, only opening up the primary
ports a little and bringing the Exhaust ports close to 2nd gen RX-7 specs. The
goal is to maintain fuel economy, low and midrange torque, and idle
quality. This episode covers everything involved in porting including:
marking out the new ports, grinding the port shape, smoothing the bowls,
smoothing port to runner transitions, smoothing the runners, grinding and
blending the Exhaust ports.
