Good read on the design of the combustion chamber

I found a good article regarding the tuning (mechanical) Ford did to achieve the power and efficiency goals they had for the 6.7L PSD, it's pretty impressive.

Note that even injector "copper" thickness matters!

I know! It's hilarious when the enviro moon-bats try to be logical. Trouble is, many people who actually believe this way get into positions where they pass laws that make no sense either. For now though, I'll enjoy my truck, trailer, ATV's & motorcycles and the great outdoors at the same time. See? It is possible!
