I generally keep copies of Jay's book in stock along with my stuff.
Makes for a decent refence library.
His is an exhaustive collection of test data - very useful and interesting if you are into automotive comparison testing
Shows up some surprising amount of variance in seemingly similar intakes

Dug out an old FPP catalog with this 454 cuin hi-riser FE dyno test in it. If you down load the pictures and use a photo viewer to enlarge them so you can read the text.
I have that catalog ;)

I am curious about how much horsepower a continuously variable intake manifold would add, such as that used on the Mazda 787b. I am talking specifically about continuously variable ones that move in and out like a trombone with the rpm of the engine (the 787b has this), not variable intake manifolds that just switch between 2 lengths of tubing with a valve. Supposedly, a variable intake manifold creates a small snaptube vidmate supercharging effect due to the frequency of the pressure wave.

I would think that it would not make any more peak HP if it was tuned for peak power, but would have a wider power band and if used with variable timing on the camshafts for even more low end torque. I think that MotoGP bike engines use both alone with timing retard/advance to make 4hp+/cuin (250+hp/60 cuin.) NA.

Ford Motor Company calls their Engines ---Engines but you don't??

My previous complimentary post was with respect towards the FE.

""The old Fairlane Engine sure had a great life!!

Hard to believe some dumdums called them motors.""

As usual your blind hate blinds your ability to converse logically.

You failed to grasp my previous hint.

""Not what it stands for, think FoMoCo ...if capable.""

And don't think I'm a Mopar nuthugger because my last race car was a Dodge.

One of my first was a yellow 1970 Torino 429 CJ, with many, many in between.

I like all domestics including AMC and Studebaker.

However, the fact remains There is no logical reason to call an Engine a motor


Mopar is the parts, service and customer care organization within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The name is a portmanteau of the words "MOtor" and "PARts". Mopar .

To bad you have to call your "parts" Fiat parts now, lol.

A google search of Ford Motorsports brings the following.


Official Ford Performance
performance.ford.com


  1. Motorsports · Stock Car Racing · Ford GT Racing · Road Racing · Drag Racing · Rally · Drifting · Off-Road Racing · Enthusiasts · What's Happening · Quick Look ...

Logically, motoring means travelling or driving a powered vehicle as Ford illustrates above.

Driving many types of powered (horseless carriages) motor cars in many motor sport events.

Search Ford Crate Motors and Ford correctly directs you to CRATE ENGINES

Did I mention

General Motors, (not General Engines), and Ford Motorsports.
