I understand. He is a doer and not a persuer. He's been up for cheif twice, but just doesn't have the right politics for the stripe.

To Defend Freedom

I can't speak for all my brothers/sisters, but most I know are not glory hounds. It is always nice to recieve recognition and all, but that is not why we put on the "Green Tuxcedo" everyday. Most of the time, they like to have a Commanders Call holding everyone after shift to attend, and from personal experiance, one feels aweful for being somewhat responsiable for people staying after. I have just always been modest, thats all.

Anyways... I didn't think you would mind me borrowing your Avatar. And if you did.. whatcha gonna do about it... I have an issued M-16A2... LMAO!!!! Just kidding.

And VW, when can we expect to see some more in the Gearhead Garage? The natives are getting restless!!!! LOL

Have a great day/night guys. Talk to ya soon.

Not to be rude, but back to what do we want to see. How about the Hemi head, CVH system and such similar systems. Or maybe a topic about volumetric efficiency, thermal efficiency and frictional efficiency.

New question..... SORRY!!! I'm really trying to learn as I am extremely intrested in all this technology.

I'm trying to read how the VTEC compares to the VVT. I get to reading it and my head gets overloaded. Can you explain (in laymans terms) how these systems compare? Being the loyal American car lover that I am, is Ford's design a big improvement over the VTEC? I must confess, I swell a little with pride when I hear that the Big 3 have come out with technology superior to that of the import companies. Yep, I'm a VERY proud American.



Thanks again.
You also may be intrested to know about BMW's CVVL idea (continuously varible valve lift) if you are interested in improving the volumeteric efficiency of engines. Here is a like to find out more. www.pattakon.com/ vva/intro.htm Hope you find it useful...

I second the forced induction thing.

I probably don't need to ask, but REALLY in depth.

What engine components are necessary to make a naturally aspirated engine into a forced induction? Etc, etc, etc.

Ohh! I got one! How about the ins and outs of a flat # engine! I saw today that Porsche uses a flat 6 (It embarreses me to JUST realize this) and I've been wondering ever since why they call it a flat # engine. I know why they call V6 engines that, because the pistons are in the shape of a V. Inline 6, well, all 6 pistons are inline with each other. but a flat #? makes me curious.

Flat...three pistons to the right, three to the left...their stroke is parallel to the ground.
