hey ppl! =D wanting to ask about small engines (1.3-1.4). These engines
back in the day were used in formula races..producing quite many hp..or
even these days...1.3l engines that are used in sports bikes reach up to
170 hp stock...now, how are these engines able to reach that many hp? and
is it possible on modifying an 1300cc engine to produce about that range of
Thanx in regard =D
ya it is.. not axactly sure on what hp the hayabusa motor produces but
there are people that use forced induction on them....
I am sure they go Way above 170hp... i belive there was one in the 400 hp range.
stock hayabusas produce 170hp....i'm talking about naturally aspired power...not forced intuction
y only NA? Forced induction is cheaper...
the whole thing here are the cops. forced induction is well..easy to notice, while NA isn't notable without popping the hood
How exactly is forced induction more easy to notice and why would it matter? Some cars come off the assembly line with a turbo or a supercharger and the only way to notice those is if you begin to spool the turbo near a cop. Unless you plan on running some big front mount with a non-recirculated blow off valve then the cops may notice you. My blow off valve has released air next to a cop before.
Since when is forced induction against the law? If you don't break the law, you don't have to worry about the cops. you could have the fastest looking car or bike in the world with the loudest blow off, but if you don't go over the limit, it ain't their problem. On the other hand if you have the slowest car in the world, and you go over the limit or drive like an idiot, (or don't use hands free now in NJ) you deserve to and will get in trouble. The problem is not what you drive, but how you drive it.
yea i know what you guys mean. Btw i live in Cyprus. The laws here are pretty strickt. You mainly can't increase your cars power =/, i'm not joking. About the forced induction though you guy are right. cops can't notice it THAT easy, but if they do its $800 xD so..thats why i;m thinking mostly of NA. And maybe in the future i could supercharge or turbo the engine.
btw guys...this is a 1.3l carb engine
In other words just don't drive like a prat, going at 100mph will definately give it away.
so what mods do you guys recommend? its a honda engine btw D series
so i was thinking of swapping a d16z6 head on it. what about bigger carbs? camshaft? what else can i do on this thing?
umm either swap an engine in there like an h22 or turbo it...
.....i'm not looking for 'big' power numbers...i'm thinking of about 140 bhp
140 bhp is slow, by 1995 standards even
eh well aren't 140bhp a duable hp rate for N/A? i know what you mean. Eventhough 140hp is more from 100hp per litre. I'm just asking what must i change,swap,take off,add to reach a fair amount of bhp keeping it N/A.
