The Difference Between A Formula One Engine And A Normal Car Engine!

Formula One cars are no different than the car parked out in your garage. They use internal combustion engines and have transmissions, suspensions, wheels and brakes. But that’s where the similarity ends, because Formula One cars aren’t designed for casual driving or cruising down the interstate. Everything about them is tweaked and tooled for one thing and one thing only – speed. Formula One …

The V12 Engine – The Smoothest Running Engine In The World!

A V12 engine is a V engine with 12 cylinders mounted on the crankcase in two banks of six cylinders each, usually but not always at a 60° angle to each other, with all 12 pistons driving a common crankshaft. Since each cylinder bank is essentially a straight-six which is by itself in both primary and secondary balance, a V12 is automatically in primary …

What Is A Turbocharger, And How A Turbocharger Works?

A turbocharger, or turbo is a turbine-driven forced induction device that increases an internal combustion engine’s efficiency and power output by forcing extra air into the combustion chamber. This improvement over a naturally aspirated engine’s output results because the turbine can force more air, and proportionately more fuel, into the combustion chamber than atmospheric pressure alone. Turbochargers are usually seen as …

Toyota’s New Atkinson Cycle Engine Is Astonishing!

The Atkinson cycle engine is a type of internal combustion engine invented by James Atkinson in 1882. The Atkinson cycle is designed to provide efficiency at the expense of power density, or total power extracted per unit of displacement per rotation. A modern variation of this approach is used in some modern automobile engines, most currently most used by Toyota for the Toyota …
