Dual Knock sensor motor
If I were to include Scott's post, and my post, here again, it
would be way too long. So, I will try to answer some points from memory.
First, every motor, not just a turbo motor is concerned with the
cam profile relative to lift and duration. Not sure the point here. Are
there better cams than stock out there? Maybe. None that I have seen
are worth the cost.
Second, in reality, the major concern with slight increases in
compression is detonation. Several ways around that. Octane / cool air
being the two cheapest "cures". While I posted about the nitrous spray
to external portion of IC is one way, it is not the most practical for a
person driving 30,000 miles per year. Hint here, trying to direct warm
air over warmer air is a damned poor way of cooling anything. More on
that down the road. Take the IC sprayers discussed earlier here 10 steps
further---you may find the grail.
Thirdly, I was comparing the k24 to the RS2. Not sure how the
k26 got brought up, but a stock RS2 has more lag than the k26, certainly
more than the k24. Bigger turbo = sometimes bigger power at the expense
of lag. Surely we can agree on that.
Finally, my mermaid reference was a way of saying the RS2 will
give you things, but not everything, and maybe not what you want.
Remember, I have *nothing* to sell here. All I know is what I see and
what I have felt. If you are saying the RS2 creates the same amount of
power @2200 that the k24 creates @2000, all I can say is that was not my
experience, but hey, only did it once. Also, I do appreciate the
brain-power on this list. Never said anything different. IF someone can
come up with a better mousetrap, and they are on this list, AND the
claims hold true based on what I have seen and know---I will be their
best reference. Hell of a lot of secrets and innuendos though. I like
straight talk and the last thing I have time to do is knock-off someone
else's idea. Checks are here, just seldom written:)
PS Just got off the phone with Paul Westin of Westin Motorsports (610)
558-0631. Got a new set of Cool Carbon greens and blues on the way.
This guy is *great* to deal with. Highly recommend buying your brake
pads from him. All disclaimers.
