Principles of porting an engine and big valve conversions

The inlet and outlet ports on the engine block are usually larger than those of the manifolds that connect to them.

This allows for scope in the manufacturing process to allow for mismatched alignment.

Generally the engine ports are larger in the upstream flow direction avoiding turbulance but power gains can be made by matching these up.

Blow off valves, dump valves and screamer pipes

Blow off valves and dump valves.
When the throttle is closed (when you lift off the accelerator) in a turbo driven engine there is a build up of pressure as forced air is still coming from the turbo. Lifting off the throttle is a lot like putting a plug in the sink – the flow through is stopped and water would just build up and overflow the sink.

Electric water pumps

In a performance engine you should never underestimate the need for adequate cooling.

All water cooled cars work on the principle of water being pumped around the engine and then to a radiator where it releases the heat.

Most water pumps are mechanical and run off the crank.

Wastegate and Blow off valves

We look at wastegates vs Bovs and explain the differences between them. Find out where the wastegate and bov goes and what they do in our informative article. We find that many people are confused by the two devices and see the terms wrongly used.
