We have been covering a lot of videos from Engineering Explained. That is because we are in love with Jason Fenske and his passion for cars. The YouTube user is super-passionate about cars and relies on his amazing understanding to impart knowledge about various phenomena. This particle video is about Jason Fenske looking into the idea of water injection for achieving an increased horsepower.
The famous Jason Fenske from Engineering Explained is back with yet another amazing video about cars. This time around, he will be teaching us about how to make use of the exhaust water for the sake of generating more horsepower. If you don’t understand what is going on; don’t worry. As always, Fenske has provided us with a thorough detail via the video’s description. You will also find that his teaching style in the video is simply remarkable. So let’s learn about water injection and how it can help you with your vehicle’s horsepower.
According to Jason Fenske, ‘water injection is a great method for increasing the horsepower an engine makes, with additional benefits such as efficiency gains and emissions reductions. Water injection makes this possible through evaporative cooling; when the water changes from liquid to vapor, it cools the intake charge, increasing density and reducing the likelihood of knock.’
He further adds, ‘as a result; you can advance timing, increase boost, and run engines with higher compression ratios, ultimately making more power. The problem with water injection, however, is that you need to refill the water tank as it runs dry constantly. Tenneco, however, developed a test for a potential solution. What if you simply recovered water from your exhaust, and re-injected that water into your intake to make more power!? Will it work? Check out the video for all of the details.’
Check out his video below to find out more about water injection and help him with his goal to ‘help other people be passionate about cars.’
