Crazy Engine Idea Involves Using One Turbo Per Cylinder


Quote:
A former engineer at Ford has an idea on how to revolutionize a gasoline engine.

Jim Clarke, who is responsible for several engine developments at Ford including the modular V8 and Duratec V6, has imagined a new engine idea that could change everything. That is, if automakers actually wanted to invest into gasoline engines and not electrification. The idea comes from Clarke and his technical partner, Dick Fotsch, who is a past president of engine divisions at Navistar and Kohler.

Their idea centers around the idea of “synergistic induction and turbocharging,” and starts with placing individual throttles right next to the cylinder head. The configuration would allow each cylinder to fill much more quickly, rapidly generating full torque.
