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.
Smokey Yunick old Nascar racer who got gaught cheating making a 7/8 size car that is why Tech uses templates to this day. Thanks Norm www.normsfiberglass.com
