I don't know what public schools were like in your area, but by the time I was old enough to attend school we had a radiant energy device in our science class. It looked sorta like this,

OH my gosh! a radiant energy generator, AND a radiant energy extractor :O

clencher i loved your post...alot of good info...though i didn't think it belonged there at first...
it definately deserves its own thread

you are right onegammy
i owe you an apology
i attacked you first...
you knew what detonation was...maybe not in the competeness my scrutinous mind requires (like the text i provided)...
this incompleteness left too much room for alternate sources to convince me
i took your reply as an attack because it did not meet my requirement of proof
so for that i am sorry...i can be a reasonable bastard...
funny thing is i have had that text on my computer for a couple years...
when i saw the piston on hastings website...it looked like much more happened to it than that possible from just fuel...
and having spent all week watching downloaded videos on free energy
my mind has been wandering all week...
its frustrating to absorb all this information on free energy and be surrounded by a world of relative inefficiency...whether or not its real or possible...

everything i said in my last angry post was 100% about me...
because i only know myself
its funny because i read it again....and realized some things i have been dealing with on a personal level...
so sorry man...clearly i dont know you...how could i...

i am angry at myself because this site represents what alot of my life and aspirations have been about...
with the huge rise in fuel costs...and having sold my effiecient vx...i have been driving around with my mini-me teg getting like 30-35mpg
and now i have dumped all this money into my turbo project for the teg...
and i know what this is going to mean for my efficiency...
i'm am just lost in a realm of my current direction

i am wondering if there is still hope for me to come out in a positive direction with my project

There is no reason the turbocharger has to hurt your efficiency! They really dont' do much at cruising speeds.

any idea how hard it will be to stare at all these gauges...
and having put so much work into understanding everything...
and to have the power available under the push of my foot
to just sit at cruise
lol

seriously though...thanx for seeing the good...
i am hanging on the edge of my seat to make a decision...
because i now own eagle d16 137mm rods and the jdm d15b crank with 45mm rod journals...
in order to use them in the d15 i am having custom wiseco's made
so i am down to two choices...
1.)
really make the efficency push and have d15z1 vx wiseco pistons made
use a z1 head and basically have an econobox with some balls
stock z1 ecu and use a msd btm/btr
2.)
go with the y8 style (3-stage vtec) head with the mild p&p...
have more flow and higher total output...less overall efficiency...
crome ecu...etc....
3.)
i also have a z6 p&p head with a 59300 cam and zex springs
but i think i am ruling this out due to it yielding the least efficiency

thanx for checking in

I would say the best head you have with the stock cam if that combination is possible would probably get you the best mileage, turbo or not. Improved head efficency as long as it isn't only for high rpm use by enlarging the ports excessively can help mileage out I would say. Any time you make the air flow through the head smoother that has to help the engine get better mileage. Just don't enlarge the ports so that it has bad flow velocity at low rpms where you are trying to get better mileage.

Also higher compression can help but don't make it run on race gas only or you won't really be saving money

I haven't really tried any major changes to an engine to get better mileage so I could be off on what I say.

You may find this site interesting. A friend of mine is into improving heads and he talks about the same thing you mentioned; keeping velocity as high as possible. http://powrehaus.com/about/

If you want to power a recip engine with detonation, why not start with one that was designed to handle the stresses: a diesel.
