This might take off or it might suck so bad I move it to Gray Water storage lol.
If you were not limited to what you can buy or make easily. What would you do to change an internal combustion reciprocating engine? I'm looking for big power from this new engine. Don't even consider how much it costs, fuel economy etc.
When you think about it, All anyone does to get more power or performance from an engine is to use what is already there and tweak it continually making tiny ittle improvements. I would imagine why all boils down to $$ The $$ to actuallly do something new and amazing while at the same time keeping someone with many more $$ than you from killing it. So we design this new mega power engine (for our own amusement) and let the process of chipping away at the little tweaks bring it back down to doable. Right now we have a crude design and have refined into something acceptable. I propose the opposite. Design something amazing and refine the details down to plausable.
Useing an existing technology created by Mr Otto how many years ago? Throwing away limits of what we have on hand. And probably using at least some fossil fuel lol but don't have to.
What would you do?
