What compression ratio and AFR are turbo nutters running?

As above! Car and bike engines.

My engine simulation project is coming along nicely - results seem to correlate with the real world!

Now it's turbo time....

1. So what did you lower your compression ratio to?

2. And your air/fuel ratio

If you've original figures, even better!

Cheers guys

Depends a lot on what engine (combustion chamber design) and who built it. And what boost you want to run?
Anywhere between 7:1 and 11:1 CR, again dependant on boost which could be 1/2 bar to 3 bar maybe more. Afr anywhere between 8.5:1 and 13:1 dependant on CR and boost and what your pre turbine temperatures are.





Never under estimate the ingenuity of an idiot!

21.8:1. Didn't lower it, just put more fuel and boost in.

I'm planning 8.0 with forged pistons, looking for 350bhp out of my blacktop.

7:8:1 @ 2.3 bar 10.5 AFR with large intercooler equ 320BHP. But turned down to 1.5 bar to make it more drivable and save the tyres
