Volumetric Efficiency and other info

Anyone have any idea what the Volumetric Efficiency of the ZX is, or the Break Specific fuel Consumption?

Thanks for the bump I guess.

Does everyone on this forum have a grade school level education and zero curiosity to know what physically goes on with their equipment? I suppose ignorance and stupidity doesn't mean you can nto go fast. If someone just had some logs with MAF readings, Map Readings and temperatures I could just calculate it...

Um... that probably wasn't the best way to obtain any help or information.

I don't personally know the answer to your questions but there are people on .net that likely do. I'm not sure how receptive they will be to your approach.

And the answer I got was much better? Please tell me how my post did not adequately describe the first post I received EVER on the site... This isn't off topic, its not "arrr biks r fast yu thunk?" section, it is performance and tech. I guess if you have more than 1 post you can just be an ass and laugh at peoples questions because you have no conceptual understanding of them.

I concur, Sasquatch. I think our new friend either lacks an adequate sense of humor, or is too lacking in patience to locate a member with the specific info and background to assist in his inquiry. Either way, the lack of tact and hostility will most definitely undermine his efforts, as no one likes a new guy who comes across as an ..

We all have different educational backgrounds; perhaps just not in the area you find beneficial, Perk. (Ucla Class of '94)

If you know the power that your engine puts out, and the conditions, you can use this online calculator from Eric Fahlgren to backwards-calculate VE and BSFC. But assumptions will need to be made, every motor is a little different.

If you need it spelled out for you I'll happily do that.

The first response that you received wasn't quite what you were looking for. Big deal. You're on the internet asking for advice in the middle of the night on a Friday. What did you expect to get? Lighten up, Francis. Last I checked, TMY10ER was a respected member of this site. Perhaps he has a sense of humor that doesn't match yours.

Implying that everyone, and you did say everyone, is ignorant, stupid and uneducated is a poor way to ask for advice. If you had any sense of social graces, common courtesy or a shred of dignity you would probably have known that.

I'm going to take my 2 degree having, ignorant, stupid ass elsewhere and happily ignore the rest of this thread. I had a bad night and don't have any desire to listen to anyone's BS.

I know what both terms mean (although I'm sure the OP meant "brake specific fuel consumption"!)

But, this information is not easy to come by. It will also vary depending on RPM and engine load. There is no fixed number for either one. There is a performance map, with RPM on one axis and engine load (normally referred to in terms of BMEP - "brake mean effective pressure") on the other, with curves showing the BSFC at each point. Takes a lot of dyno testing to obtain this.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

OH and best of luck with your quest for results......did you try the "SEARCH" feature we have here or is that to "simple" for you?....
