Evolution of Intake Design for a Small Engine Formula Vehicle 2001-01-1211

To obtain a maximum range for usable torque, Helmholtz theory is utilized to tune an Honda CBR 600 cc engine. The design objectives were to: 1) Increase performance by reducing pressure losses in the entire intake system; 2) Maximize the restrictor's design to increase airflow at lower pressure drops; 3) Improve throttle response through throttle body design and reduction of turbulence when full open; 4) Utilize runner design to improve tuning effects as predicted by Helmholtz resonance theory and; 5) Incorporate a plenum design with equal air distribution to all four cylinders.
