[DML] Re: Engine Upgrades.



The problem is that it's not a perfected motor that they wrenched on, 
and suddenly got improvement out of. It was still a pretty early 
design by Renault, with lots of unrealized areas of improvement that 
they had yet to tap into. As well, there are ALOT of improvements 
that take place outside of the engine as well.

The only real engine modifications are custom cams, and ported and 
polished heads. All with the goal of flowing greater volumes of air 
and fuel into and out of the combustion chambers, at a much faster 
rate, for a more powerful explosion inside the combustion chambers.

Next is a beefier ignition system to help burn the fuel more 
efficiently, and the new exhaust system. Less restrictive than stock 
because of both physical obstructions inside the plumbing, larger 
diameter pipes to flow more gas faster, and shorter tubes. If you add 
this all together, the substansial gain in power output is realistic, 
if not impressive when according to DMCH, the stock tuning 
specifications are kept intact.

Plus there is peace of mind with the motor as well. Since this is not 
only a common modification of the drivetrain, but one that doesn't 
need any custom tinkering. That takes away alot of the stigma 
normally associated with engine swaps.
