AL Autos Official: News Update (11/20/2019)


#41

Very premium and futuristic design!

You’ll likely get much better fuel economy by using 4v per cylinder and VVL, as opposed to 5 valves.


#42

@Watermelon3878

Thanks for the compliments and constructive criticism/advice! TBH I’ve been meaning to experiment with VVL and not using 5 valves per cylinder but I haven’t gotten around to it. Knowing this, hopefully I will remember your advice when I make the next model year… or other economy cars :slight_smile:

Thanks again!


#43

If I remember correctly the last engine with five-valve heads was discontinued in 2006. So there are valid reasons why this setup is no longer used.


#44

Of are talking about VAG engines, was because the injection sistem dont fit with 5valves


#45

Having two different cam profiles is much more advantageous, although pre-VVL there were no disadvantages to 5v engines.


#46

@Watermelon3878

So I tested your suggestion on my engines and I got some werid results.

Here’s how the experiment went down:

I recorded all measurements and tuning variables on the old engine.

I then created a new engine with the exact same measurements and tuning as the old engine but changed the valve #/cyl to 4 and added VVL

I then fiddled with VVL only to match the old power and torque band as best as I could.

I then re-tuned all the other parts (transmission, suspension, etc) as I usually would.

In the end, I got these results:

Old -> Experimental

224.3 HP @ 6900 RPM -> 226 BHP @ 7000 RPM

191.3 lb-ft @ 4300 RPM -> 189 lb-ft @ 4000 RPM

27.5 MPG -> 26.4 MPG

Now my original intentions were NOT to prove you wrong (as I thought you had a valid point), but to simply see what would happen if I took on your advice. Is there something I’m missing w/ regards to tuning with the new setup?

P.S: I re-tuned the Turbos the match the power and torque band I had originally had and I still only got up to 26.6 MPG as opposed to the original 27.5 MPG.


#47

With VVL the best way to tune is low cam profile (35-50) and high VVL profile (>80 if you’re going for performance 60-80 otherwise) for an optimal combo of efficiency and power.

However this kind of difference can cause a torque valley similar to what’s seen in BRZ’s


#48

I see. Thanks for the insight! I will keep this in mind next time I’m experimenting with VVL profile!

AL Autos Release! The All New 2019 AL Autos Cotidie!

New%20AL%20Logo%20PNG%20v4

Welcome to our all new AL Autos Cotidie, our Subcompact Hatchback! We here at AL Autos have been working on making our cars more affordable while still instilling the spirit of fun to drive AL Autos Vehicles. The Cotidie was one of the cars that came out as a result of this current mission statement. We have also taken in a lot of advice acquired from various sources and put it into the making of this car! Thank you to everyone who has given us feedback and ways to improve! Now onto the car! Enjoy!


Welcome to the 2019 AL Autos Cotidie (RGXLE Trim Shown)

Starting from the front-end, we’ve incorporated our triangle-based fixtures onto the front of the Cotidie to give it that recognizable AL Autos look. While the headlamps take on the familiar shape, we have created a unique headlamp design for the Cotidie. We here at AL Autos always strive to see what improvements we could make and the headlamps on the Cotidie was a result of one of those improvements. Sleek and stylish, these headlamps provide excellent lighting of the road for those late-night trips. These headlamps coupled with our recognizable design give the Cotidie a sense of readiness for whatever adventures lie ahead.

The Cotidie’s round yet stylish design allows for a cute yet practical body to look at. We’ve tried our very best to make sure the drivers of our Cotidie had the maximum amount of space to put stuff inside and move about in the cabin. Our vision for the Cotidie was to have a small car on the outside yet a nice and roomy interior to allow for the feeling that you aren’t driving a small little sub-compact hatchback.

Along with a focus on practicality for such a small car, we’ve also focused on improving the efficiency of our engines. The Cotidie has one of the engines to come out of this focus. The Cotidie has choices of engines that strive to provide a balance between maximum fuel efficiency while still having enough power to boot.

The Cotidie is the result of a vision we here at AL Autos are trying to achieve. We want to provide automobiles that are fun to drive yet practical enough to enjoy your automobiles for years and years to come! Whether you are on the technical streets of San Francisco, or the wide open US Interstate 5 heading to LA, the Cotidie aims to please!



If you would like to view individual trims. See the summary tabs bellow! Thanks for sticking around and have a wonderful day!

Is it like a crossover. It’s got some beefy wheels for a sedan


#60

I meant for the Aurum to be AL Autos’ flagship sedan. I will admit they wheels are a bit big. Problem is I wanted the Aurum to have 22" rims but I also didn’t want the tires to be too low profile. 22", in hindsight, might be to big but idk. I guess I wanted it to look very premium.
