Octane Ratings and the 4 Stroke Engine Cycle - EricTheCarGuy
I know it has been a while but better late than never. I recently had a conversation with someone who wanted to know why octane ratings were important and what they meant, I thought this would make a perfect video for ETCG and here we are. So in this video we go over the 4 parts of the 4 stroke cycle in a gasoline engine and how it is effected by octane. I like this video because it is a window into the direction I see these videos going in the future, more dynamic and more thought out. I hope you enjoy it and find it informative. Special thanks to Ford Motor Company for the use of their animation in this video. I did add some stuff of my own by the way, thanks guys. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- BTW Keep checking back with EricTheCarGuy.com, in the not too distant future I will be updating the site and making more in dept videos available for purchase.

Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1. Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer & build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all & just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.
