There are two new engine applications using the company's high heat resistant Endure thermoplastics; the air intake manifold with integrated charge air cooler, and hot-side turbo duct.
Kale [1] studied the air flow through intake manifold port, valve and valve lifts using the code STAR-CD and also predicted the Flow structures for the various valve lifts.
The new styling incorporates special baffling underneath which provide a semi-direct air intake system that provides cooler air directly to the engine's long track tuned intake manifold, which coupled with Suzuki's Variable Valve Timing system and twin intake and exhaust valves for each cylinder, gives improved acceleration and top-end speed.
Most of the components are new, with titanium valves plus revised pistons, con rods and crankshaft, as well as a new intake manifold.
With traditional methods, an engineer would create a computer model of an intake manifold - the most complicated engine part - and wait about four months for one prototype at a cost of $500,000.
If a vehicle has been driven into a serious flood, water can overcome the intake manifold, causing the engine to hydraulically lock and this may require total replacement depending on the revs at which the engine was operating at the time of the incident.
Plan on spending about $5,000 for a complete kit (turbocharger, pipes, intake manifold, new injectors, intercooler and computer reprogramming).
The group's product portfolio includes air filter systems, intake manifold systems, liquid filter systems, cabin filters and cylinder head covers made of plastic with many integrated functions for the automotive industry, as well as filter elements for vehicle servicing and repair.
A stock appearance meant no high-flow intake manifold, aftermarket cylinder heads or headers.
The Nano's plastic air intake manifold is produced by Tata Visteon and employs BASF's Ultramid glass-fiber reinforced engineering plastic.
We key elements of the engine model consist in principal parts, such as gas exchange (throttle, intake manifold, mass flow rate), working conditions (compression stroke, torque generation and acceleration).
