Re: Compression For Dummies )(ie ME)
I'll ramble on.Compression is what is needed to get power/ combustion. On an engine with a fair overlap cam where air resonates in and back out of port at low speeds. Makes V.E low so compression is built up to get some bottom end rpm power.
The more compression the better combustion can push piston down the bore.In most cases its done on higher reving engines where inlet manifolds are shorter [Gen lll] and as said slightly lumpy cam. As in XR6... See the compression off the 290 kw?
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
