Spectacular New Engine Developments Applicable to Racing

Some new highway engines sport a dramatic change to camshaft timing for improved efficiency, emissions, and performance. Each of these apply to high compression ratio engines. However, they rely on special camshaft timing to reduce the compression ratio to retard pre-ignition. An increased expansion ratio from a higher compression ratio remains that achieves improved engine […]
