But at full throttle they would be open anyways. Is there any regulation that says that they cant be individually operated?? Having one servo per throttle??Mudflap wrote: ↑Thu Nov 07, 2019 11:40 pmLower heat losses from smaller effective combustions surface.Holm86 wrote: ↑Thu Nov 07, 2019 7:58 pmPumping losses would be relatively easy to minimize, they run individual throttle bodies so just keep the two deactivated throttles fully open.Mudflap wrote: ↑Thu Nov 07, 2019 4:19 pmIf you could remove the pumping and frictional losses associated with the extra 2 cylinders that don't do anything and provided that your working 4 cylinders could cope with the increased thermal and mechanical loads associated with operating at higher duty then yes, there could be a thermal efficiency gain.
But what would the advantage be??
Also throttles are not individually operated.
Is there even any point in closing the throttle bodies when off throttle?? As it just create pumping losses. If I did the engine map, I would let the throttles stand wide open when off throttle, and then just manage the engine braking with the MGU-K
