Air is a FLUID - by definition
Many have posted privately here that my statement that "Air is a Fluid, by
definition" is incorrect. Many have READ that statement to mean Air is a
Liquid. That is not what I posted, intended or have proposed in ANY of my
posts. So please, let's ditch that whole idea, never said, nor implied by me
in this bypass valve discussion.
Those of you that think that Air is NOT a Fluid, might want to read up some,
a dictionary will do for starters. (Charge) Air is governed by the
Properties of Fluids, and really the only argument that applies to a bypass
valve here. Let's not make this exercise too complicated. Since a WG uses
the same operating principle as some bypass valves (albiet NOT the Bosch
ones), not sure the "whirly" statements and the very claims don't contradict
Regardless, the 2 specific Bosch valves and the all aluminum one I
referenced, are not counterforce bypass valves anyhow. The WG is, and "some"
bypass valves are. My proposal is that many of you would have to explain WG
function if we are to apply density and heat to an absolute pressure device.
That would be a tough one.
Some clarity here. Given the baseline "assumption" of the stock bypass
valve operation, not sure any further discussion on the Density issue is
I would really like discussions on effective port size of multiple valves vs
a single valve, and the locations of those valve ports in regards to flow and
actual charge air pressure loss over time. But once again, we seem stuck in
the taipipe of the baseline. So be it. Without baseline understanding, how
are any discussions going to go forward? We've hit the wall here a few time
in the last few weeks. Frustrating for this author, as reflected in my
posts. Hoping this will change, history dictates that might be pretty
