Re: Acrid smoke and low vacuum

Re: Acrid smoke and low vacuum

Don't understand how cranking speed can change the pressures? You are concentrating a starting volume into a smaller one. Regardless of speed, the compression is surely the same?

Re: Advice please

Good advice about books, but nothing beats talking to a knowledgeable owner. Contact a forum member near you and arrange a meet up would be a good idea - most people would be happy to help.

Re: 3.8 inlet manifolds
