So I’ve been on a bit of a car/engine build binge but no actual visual design being done, so I have decided to share one of those creations and maybe offer others to share their similar builds if they have any.
So, onto the build: A non-intercooled 2.2L I4 Turbo
My idea behind it was an undisclosed Gasmean car maker (akin to a real world American one) wanted to get into the small performance car/hot hatch/sports coupe markets, and rather than make a more high strung N/A engine, they took one of their existing inline 4’s and stuck a speed snail to the side of it. A main influence would be the Turbo 4’s that Chrysler made in the 80’s, but I don’t know if they had intercoolers on those engines, but I chose to run this one as non-intercooled to be a bit more different/interesting of a build. And it doesn’t make too bad a number for hp either.
I’d be interested to see other peoples ideas for a non-intercooled turbo engine, and maybe some suggestions for changes for this one. One thought I had was to go from a twin scroll back to a standard geometry turbo, but I’m fairly happy with it apart from that.
