If this is true - Wait until the environmentalists get a hold of this. the oceans will be dry in no time.

Think of the loss of marine habitat! LMAO

Seriously -

Does anyone recall a system developed by and old racer (name escapes me) called the expansion cycle engine? It was a article in HotRod or one of the other car mags back in like the late 70ís / early 80ís.

Basically the guy took a 4 cylinder Feiro and set it up to transfer all the heat back into the intake. Had a heat transfer system set up in the intake manifold and used a turbo to control the expansion due to increased heat.

He claimed to be getting like 250 HP and 50 mpg.
