all that work, and money and it puts out stock supra hp numbers, and less torque that sucks
i have much respect for honda though, just that engine seems unimpressive
$15k+ in parts alone, NO
320hp with only 220lbs of torque good ole honda motor
I bet it would be AWESOME for getting groceries and running erands.
Would be more impressed if I saw a remote control gas powered engine!
Speaking of which, anyone have a gas powered rc car? or truck? or anything for that matter!
320hp/220torque No, if the torque was even with the Hp
320 on motor with an iVtec motor is nice. should be enough for 9s in a good chassis.
Not really. I don't know much about this shit, but torque seems low.
It's a small engine that will find it's home in a lightweight car. It doesn't need any more torque than that.
it doesnt have torque, but 20 bucks says itll cut a 1.4 60ft
Okay I'm going to say something controversial because I have to go to work and want a long thread to read when I come back.
This engine > 99% of all engines because it represents the pinacle of internal combustion piston engine development. I don't care that it doesnt make rediculous amounts of power, it's only two liters. The materials, techniques, parts, etc applied to this engine are astounding in their technical aspects and make this engine very respectable and impressive IMO.
What about longevity?
Does it have 8 cylinders? Then no.
oh ok, what do you mean by a light weight vehicle? civic, integra,etc?????
hell yea its impressive. that lik 4cyl is a mean piece of machinery
Go check out the Ford Focus engines used in the USAC midget class.
Ok, that's like saying...
"what purpose would that engine have? It can't rev past 9000 RPM's without blowing itself to pieces."
Drive it where it makes power. The car that engine goes in will be fast.
Flat Torque Curve = HP throughout the rpm range.
Peaked HP and no Torque = Only HP in the top end, and jack shit everywhere else.
pretty impressive, but not for the $$
