RE: Air Flow in a bypass valve

4 defective valves bought from two different suppliers over a 6 month 
period......  Right.......

The valve on the K24 app is not opening because of a Density problem,  
That little turbo is a heat pump above 10psi in the 10V and 20V app.  
Your not doing your homework here Scott, and in lot's of other places 
too.....You need to look at your PR equations again, there wrong because 
your assuming things, Just like your Assuming that PSI and Density are 
the same thing..... They are not, just ask a pilot about Density altitude 
vs Pressure Altitude.  Thank God your not a pilot 'cause you'd be a 
smoking hole in the ground......

Hunh?  Let's see, two valves that both dump early is just twice the area 
for the charge air to exit from.....  One valve that works is all that 
you need, which is the reason that I did the Mod correctly with the HKS

I understand it. You don't, read on.......

>Air is a fluid by definition.  

Wrong!  Air is a gas that is governed by very complex fluid dynamics 

Someone else that stayed awake during his physics classes (Wolff) nicley 
back's this up with the following....

Do this experiment correctly with a gas and you'll get a higher Density 
at low temp than high temp. Pilot's worry about Hot and High situations, 
Why?  Hotter air has less density, less density = less lift and less 
power.  You can go to extremes in the other direction and get too cold 
and too dense, Siberia for instance where an engine will actually make 
less power, This can be proved with Topping charts for helicopters.

>Pretty basic stuff here...   Again.  

IF you understand it, which by example your showing that you 
don't.........  BTW wanna try to impeach my info, get the books first and 
read up.  "The Art And Science Of Flying Helicopters" by Shawn Coyle has 
a very succient section entitled "Helicopter Engines And Their Controls" 
page 71 and 72 will be of particular interest to you.

BTW if it's not a density issue why was water injection developed?  I'll 
even give you the answer, it's used primarily to increase the DENSITY of 
the aircharge.........

Lesson over.

I now return you to the normally scheduled flame fest..........
