Parts Integration for Power



Portions of this lecture should be familiar to regular Performance Professor readers. They're intended to be. In fact, topics for preceding Lectures were carefully selected to bring our readership to this point in the lecture series. Without doubt, there are certain and specific relationships that exist among an engine's basic components. The "cross talk" or functional relationships that exist among major parts bears particular influence on the selection of individual pieces. In a sense, the whole is, in fact, the sum of its parts when the objective is optimum engine performance. It is the goal of this Lecture to lay out some basics and keys directed to helping in the selection of parts for specific purposes...objectives that vary from enthusiast to enthusiast but eventually focus on the need to understand the relationships that exist not only among various components but within the design parameters of individual parts.

More exactly, knowing what happens to engine functions when dimensions are changed, parts are matched (or not) and how to know which components may be more critical than others are among the points in this lecture. Some fundamental and simplified mathematical equations are provided to increase the intelligence in making certain parts selections. The results of these should be compared to the information supplied by parts manufacturers, primarily for purposes of verification and/or improving upon the method of selecting components and systems.

Make sure you read this Lecture prior to your next high-performance parts purchase!
