It's all about BTU content boys and girls, hydrogen is still the best at nearly double what gasoline is. Imagine being able to run an all ceramic engine with no rings, hydrogen injection and turbo charged to 100psi.

All of a sudden 4 HP per cubic inch becomes reality and your Mom's Neon puts out 500 HP stock.

Of course the engines they will sell you will never be this big, lawnmower size more than likely.

hmm...that means that 383 im building would make 1532HP!!!!! and a 502 would make 2008HP that is impressive....but, not as impressive as a top fuel car just imagine the kind of cylinder pressures a nitro motor makes to generate 6000+ hp.....but @ 30$ a gallon hydrogen seems a whole lot more attractive...lol I do Have a question, an all ceramic motor....how would you control wear? and I suppose the heads would have selonoids to control the valves and no need for a cam, chain, lifters....that would be cool, punch in on a lap top the lift and duration cam you want and go racing....then punch in a mild manored cam for street...I want one!!!!!

What you just said is not so far off 2wld4u

In the new diesel motors cummins or duramax (sorry cant' remember) there are solenoinds that operate the valves, yes you would be able to do just that. And at this time it might only be heavy duty apps however it is very true. no cam, timing chain, pushrods, rocker arms. Just a set of solenoids ontop of the valve that fire when the computer tells it too.

the applications are as endless as the solenoids max firing rate and bottom end. Slick!

I'll dig around some books at home and try to bring a website back for everyone to look at.

Found it (sorta...)

Cat HEUI System

OK I was way off, but i knew there was something that was all about the timing and precise control.

Poke around there you'll find more detail in the site.

Sorry to get your hopes up, but hey if you got nuthin better to do with diesel, there you go.

I think ford has played with some prototypes with selonoids, I alo read one time that a motor with stock internals turned 10,000 rpm with this type set-up....I think it was in a engine builders mag...a few years ago...there was even talk of being able to use carbon fiber valves because of no spring pressure....Its definatly in the works...but we proboly wont see it until cars are converted to 16 Volts....instead of out dated 12 volt systems......

why 16 volt? almost all Cat's are 24 volt, in fact most heavy duty apps are (komatsu, jd).

hmm, you know 24 volt systems would be better, as it would take alot of power to control the selonoids accuratly....I just figured 16 volt because it the next obvious step above 12v.....most 12 volt systems today are over taxed if you ask me but when and how long are differnent storries...maybe by 2010...and by then we will proboly have a 70's flash back and be in a gas crisis...lol
