I'm curious what pulsewidth Leafy runs after Del Taco at full tilt right past peak load

This is relevant to my new book, Maximum Leafy

I've found that if you strain hard enough, you get some weird spasms. Is this static?

Yes, but is your anus 0.63 A/R or 5.06 A/R? There is always a point of diminishing returns.

I would imagine spool would be pretty poor at that point. I guess it all depends on if you are looking for faster spool or more top end?

It sounds like maybe he needs a double espresso, Its like an EBC for your digestive tract.

But its doesnt really matter now, does it? If the hose on Hustlers funnel mask is only 1.5" in diameter it does not matter how much espresso you put in the system. Sure you will get an increase in velocity, but that's not what we want here. We are looking for volume! You could have a 12" diameter funnel and like 3 dudes but its not going to help if you are restricted by the plumbing. It will never, ever reach peak efficiency unless you reduce the restriction. Period.

But where is the point of diminishing returns? There must be some golden ratio out there that we just are not aware of. We obviously need more research and testing. Data is the only way to unravel this mystery.

You guys are thinking about it wrong. When you have a smaller outlet then you get more pressure, like covering up the end of a garden hose. So you can spray farther and get more thrust.

Basic physics guys, us EEs know how it works.

You engineers know nothing. Its all theory with no knowledge of the real world. Only through the rigors of testing and documentation following the scientific method can truths be revealed.

Testing shall commence immediately.

Is that book any good? I'm starting to think that it can't possibly be. Maybe it was ghostwritten by someone else, or constantly breathing in gas fumes has damaged the author's brain?

EDIT: Nevermind, looked up some excerpts, seems like its a good book.

I find it informative. Its not written in an overly technical way as you would get with, say, someones doctoral thesis. It takes a lot of complex concepts and boils them down so non technical people can understand them but still gives you the technical detail. I will continue to recommend it to noobs who are still trying to grasp the concepts. I find the writing style to be somewhat ...odd. Mostly due to the formatting maybe?

The author is a member of this forum and if you've read his posts, you'd be able to tell he wrote this book.

Until I actually looked for excerpts, I had assumed it was written in a more technical style. Looking through it now, there is no doubt in my mind that this book was written by the same person who posts here. I'll probably pick up a copy and bust out my highlighter. Might as well read all you can, right?

The engine management portions of the book are a bit dated, but the mechanical bits are still good.

I'm delighted I can supply you buttheads with a source of mirth.

Assemble all your vast knowledge and tell me the secret to banishing the creep. After changing the A/R, altering WG springs 100 times, porting the wastegate, providing the gate its own vent tube, increasing the exit port size and then reducing the valve coverage, please tell me what to do next.

Also, would creep not suggest that the flow capability of everything else in the system is higher than the gate designer planned on for those operating conditions? Sounds like a compliment to me.

When nothing else works, the exhaust restricter is the best choice.

Creep was one of the reasons for cobbling up the A/O.

That silly book of 20 years ago has three glaring errors. Any of you jokers up to finding them? Don't count the one on the IC, that is too simple. Open to suggestions on any part of book, as second edition is nearly done.

Take a look for Jeff Hartman's turbo book. He did a great job, and it's only two years old.

The editor offered some interesting advice a long time back; for every equation in the book 100 fewer books will sell, and every picture will sell 1000 more books.

Thanks to anyone that bought a copy, the royalties are cool. And, yes, the royalties permitted a better brand of Tequila.
