>his engine still doesn't have pushrods

Pushrods are superior to DOHC. The Automotive press is saying pushrods. Heck, even the Europeans are lauding the supercharged LS9 and LS2.

You cannot argue with that, expecially since the only alternatives are the V8 DOHC mills from Ferrari and Lamborghini that, while generate near-pushrod horsepower, are painfully lacking in torque. Torque, in fact, that rivals V6 family car mills. Racing history and commercial viability is screaming for the pushrod design of the powertrain in terms of overall engineering supremacy.

Despite what honda fags say, hp per cubic inch or liter or whatever never meant anything and it never will. It's a stupid marketing gimmick. The real measure of an engine is how much it weighs compared to the power it makes. In that regard pushrods are superior engineering, they get the job done making the same power with less weight, smaller size and fewer parts. There's no point in DOHC unless you're trying to impress bench racers.

I mean compare the V10 in the BMW M5 compared to the Corvette Z06 V8, BMW is about 305 ci the Corvette is 428. HP is about even but the Corvette kills it in torque, 92 plus more ft lbs of torque, and it weighs quite a bit less. All the while being about 123 ci bigger in displacement, where is the advantage of the DOHC?

Why does pushrod v8 make more torks than overhead cam engines?

>>14210272
Pretty much. They're not engineers nor enthusiasts, they just want a paycheck and will publish whatever the advertising material says in their own words.
>>
>>14210277

>Why does pushrod v8 make more torks than overhead cam engines?

Torque is dictated by displacement and stroke.
Not by the cams

A 4.0l DOHC engine is going to have more torque than a 2.0l pushrod engine
A 4.0l pushrod engine is going to have more torque than a 2.0l DOHC
>>
>>14210303
stroke has very little to do with it
>>
>>14210277
Because
>they can fit more displacement with the same size packaging
>they cannot rev as high, so they need more stroke for an equal piston speed
These two factors both cause a longer stroke - which results in more torque.

Also, most modern pushrod engines are designed for both truck use and pony car use. The shared design goal these two have is torque - so the designers make sure it'll have lots of that.
>>
>>14210232
The fuck are you on about? Valvetrains have nothing to do with the transmission.
>>
>>14210303
What if both have same displacement. Would they then have similar torks or what would be the deciding factor.

Or would the stroke still be differing between the two
>>
>>14210317
>not getting the joke

>>14210326
Intake and exhaust flow (both head and manifold), cam profile and bore/stroke ratio all determine torque.

In your head they are. You could have 500 lb/ft with a curb weight of 2500 lbs but with a 4K redline and low gearing it ain't going anywhere fast.

DOHC is just as outdated, being invented in 1912.

>>14210402
In an inline engine, you barely have any of the weight saving using pushrods. DOHC really is better there.

>>14210408
ICE is stone age. Using chemical energy to propel bullets is stone age too-doesn't mean it doesn't work to shoot stuff.
Both pushrods and OHC have their advantages. DOHC is better in inline engines, with redlines over 10K, while pushrods offer really small packaging and low weight in V engines, and can work up to 9K.

Two cars are traveling parallel at the same speed. Car A is at 2500 rpm and making 350 N-m of torque. Car B is at 6000 RPM making 200 N-m of torque. If the two cars start accelerating at the same time, who will pull ahead? Assume same weight, air resistance etc.

Please respond to each point, or concede that you are a retard.

1. Displacement differences make up the weight difference
2. NASCAR engines are production block engines
3. The BMEP and MPS of each engine are within under 1% and 5%, respectively.
4. Given point 3, remember the NASCAR engine at the time of calculation was also using a carb, flat tappets, and steel pushrods and steel or aluminum rockers. Again, worryingly close numbers for an engine that is much more restricted.

You assume F1 engines are stretched out to their maximum potential, they are severely limited in power output and have been for decades. Nascars meanwhile are pretty much at the peak of whats possible under their regulations and less reliable than the f1 engines (which have a much much much higher potential output)

>>14210277

You should all take some time to learn about what dictates the amount of torks an engine produces at a certain RPM.

It is mostly down to how efficiently air gets into the cylinder due to resonance in the intake manifold and whatnot.

I think it is explained reasonably well here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAZP2Rlq43c

Size: Check out the overall packaging of a Coyote vs any SBC and youll see, if you ever even seen a big block chevy (396, 454, etc) youd know its smaller than a V arranged DOHC (coyote, 4.6) motor of the same cylinder arrangement. Dont believe me go pop some hoods
Weight: Youre saving 3 cams and vastly larger heads, traded for smaller heads (less material) a single cam, and a single timing gearset, it's an absolute no brainer.
Friction: Now i disagree with this point, even using rollers in the OHV this is invalid as there is a whole lot of friction with a pushrod moving in its galley and against a rocker.
Cost: Please see above, if it means anything the latest iteration of the corvette was specifically designed to utilize pushrod technology because it was cheaper to manufacture, hence a dramatically lower cost to produce making the car more affordable. If you disagree do some reading.

Pushrodfags are almost as annoying as Ron Paul voters and Kony 2012 memers

I have a friend who cannot stop saying "JUST SWAP AN LS IN IT" when talking about any car ever. It gets fucking boring.

The LS is a good motor for what it does. The BMW S54 is good for what it does. Those tweaked out Nissan V6s are pretty amazing too.

Pushrods can't into VVT systems and can't vary cam profiles and timing on both their intake and exhaust sides at the same time. Advantages and disadvantages exist in all designs.


So fuck off back to Forza and LS swap everything to impress your 14 year old friends.
>>
>>14215354
OHV engines are also stupid easy to work on.

I did my entire top end rebuild and valvetrain, timing set, camshaft, lifters, springs, etc. etc. all by myself in my garage with basic hand tools.
I don't think I'd attempt anything like that on a SOHC / DOHC engine for my first time around.
>>
>>14215433
the only difficult part is the timing since there are more cams

its just as easy

>they banned OHC for being better

Post proof. Not any article about how the Cammer was made, actual proof, as in a period Nascar rulebook.

Guesswhat: you can't. They didn't ban it. Turns out putting a SOHC iron big block into a car severely hurts it's handling. It'll work in a straight line (Cammers dominated dragracing for about half a decade), but not in Nascar.

Go look up the Viper's cam-in-cam VVT. Fully independent VVT right there.

Also, you try doing variable displacement on a DOHC engine. It's a mess.

>Because of strong protests from the Chrysler camp, NASCAR threatened significant weight handicaps on Cammer-powered Galaxies, and the engine was eventually banned outright from competition.

http://www.onallcylinders.com/2014/01/16/top-10-engines-time-revealed-10-ford-427-sohc-cammer/

>b-b-but they banned it because it wasn't in a production car

Wrong, the reasoning was because it wouldn't fit under the stock hood. Chrysler ran the 426 hemi before it was ever in a production car.
>>
>>14217310
>summit racing blog
>not a rulebook

Everyone keep telling Nascar banned them - but where's the actual, honest to god proof? I've searched for several years now, and I'm afraid there isn't any.

I suspect the engines where just too damn heavy to perform on Nascar track. They worked great when dragracing though.

The Hemi specifically created that production-car rule. As in:
>Chrysler makes Hemi
>races Hemi, dominates season
>someone whines
>Chrysler homologates Hemi
Ford could've done the very same with the Cammer (and it's a shame they didn't). Problem was probably that the added weight didn't work.
>>
>>14217310
>Virtually all modern engines operate their valves through one or two overhead camshafts that push the valves open from above. It used to be that a single camshaft mounted in the engine block opened the valves from below, using long pushrods to activate rocker arms that pressed the valves open. This is still how the GM small-block V8 and the Chrysler Hemi V8 operate, though the Hemis splay the valves apart to fit into a pentroof combustion-chamber design (sorry, Chrysler—it isn't really a semihemispherical "hemi" shape anymore, though it's close). But Nascar engines still use the older, less efficient wedge-combustion-chamber shape with the intake and exhaust valves aligned in the same plane.

>b-b-but SOHC isn't banned, they just make the manufacturers use the same OHV design for their heads

why is it retarded? why does it have to be "fair"
when f1 gave a choice of 1.5 litre turbo and 3 litre na engineers went turbo because that was the best solution for them.
only cosworth argued about "fair" and didn't win anything again for over a decade.
when real life gives you the choice of 6.2 litre with pushrods and 5 litres with ohc then who's to say those same f1 engineers wouldn't go for the pushrods? iirc mercedes actually did at one point

tomato is superior to tomato. Even the press is saying that tomato is obviously supposed to be pronounced tomato. Heck, even the Europeans are lauding the tomato as superior in both pronunciation and nourishment terms

You cannot argue with that, especially since the only alternatives are saying tomato instead of tomato, while generating near record-breaking numbers of tomato sayers to tomato sayers, are painfully lacking in tomatoes. burn that rival's tomato mills. Tomato history and commercial viability is screaming for the re-tomato-design of the tomato in terms of overall tomato supremacy.

Despite what artichoke fags say, saying tomato like that or lettuce heads or whatever never meant anything and it never will. It's a stupid marketing gimmick. The real measure of a tomato pronouncer is how much it sounds like tomato compared to the tomatoes it makes. In that regard tomato are superior engineering, they get the job done making the same number of people saying tomato instead of tomato with less unfortunate things happening to tomato, smaller stems and fewer tomato nay-sayers. There's no point in saying tomato unless you're trying to impress the wrong tomato fanbase.
