THE READ FOR SPEED by Ned Erkman
CHAPTER 3


Power Production Science

The more air and fuel that flows in and out of each cylinder, and the faster and more efficiently the air & fuel mixture burns, the greater the potential for engine power production.

The most important objective for increasing power output is making modifications that improve combustion. Since the combustion process determines power production, creating a more volatile rate of combustion by increasing air/fuel mixture volume produces additional power. The efficiency of the combustion process by way of a faster burn also helps to promote better combustion efficiency. The fast burn rate creates combustion pressure on the top of the piston, at a greater rate of speed, which results in an increase in power production and a faster rate of engine acceleration.

Improving airflow can be achieved by reducing restrictions in the intake and exhaust passages that enter and exit the cylinders.
