VERY well tuned engines or poorly tuned engines fall outside of these rules. There are some engines out there with 9:1 compression that require race fuel because their induction system is so well tuned they can see VE over 125%.
Ok I follow you on the VE over 125%,but got lost at the part where you said "dynamic compression at 100% can be disregarded" and then completed your explanation saying static and dynamic were all needing to be calculated.Is this meaning dynamic only needs to be a factor when the engine operates below 100% VE,which would be part throttle operation?
