A 90° 140ci V-4 engine has 2.85ci combustion chamber heads and flat top pistons. The head gasket is 0.020” thick and the pistons are flush with the block at TDC. The bore-to-stroke ratio is 1 to 0.97. The engine is running at 6000rpm and making 345hp with fuel being feed to it at a rate of 4.6g/s. Four coils fire in coil-on-plug sequential fire mode. The engine’s volumetric efficiency is 94% and mechanical efficiency is 78%. The rocker arm ratio is 1.8:1 and the total valve lift is 0.311”.
