I already employed wikipedia to find that data :) All the missing fields in the table are now for where the internet isn't very helpfull, or the engines are not stock anymore, so i need owner input :)

buick has 190NM supported by the amazing marvel t3 carburettor that is either pissing fuel everywhere on the ground or pissing fuel into the engine

Is it even drivable? Why no thread? :(

How much torque does the espace have?

Ok, Zastava data: 41kw/79Nm - 1116cm? - 820kg - I4 engine

- - - Updated - - -

126p is under construction, that's true, might be ready for this year's road trip (as it consumes less then 5 liters ;))

Espace data: 1996 - 79kW/170Nm - 2165cm? - 1350kg

We did something similar a few years back, right? Fun to have an updated version. :)



:lol:

2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10: 8.4L V10 (biggest engine? :D) making 600hp (450 kW) and 560 lb?ft (760 N?m) with a weight of 3,460 lb (1,570 kg). Naturally aspirated of course, else it'd be 800+ hp. ;)

Assuming my math is right, that works out to 53.57 kW/L and 286.62 kW/t.

I'm getting my ass handed to me in the kW/L category but I think I have the kW/t category locked down for cars. :p

Horsepower per liter means Fuck All. It's easy to get a turbocharged engine to high H/P liter. But there is nothing putting out this much power stock that is nearly as bulletproof.

1990 E30 318i - 83kW/162kW - 1766cm? - 1100kg - I4

1990 MX5 - 85kW/135Nm - 1598cm? - 955kg - I4

Truth. My engine's supercharger is bypassed almost all the time, but the SAE-certified horsepower rating obviously can only be produced when the charger is at full chat. And then, since it is a Positive-Displacement Supercharger, when it is actually producing the 556bhp / 415kW it definitely is NOT a 6.2L engine... it is instead 6.2L + 1.9L = 8.1L. And it drinks fuel like it too :p

*torque rating already added, thanks*

How much power an engine puts out per litre, is a mark of how much the engineers were willing to fiddle with the design and use higher performance parts; nothing else. Power to weight is far more important, in terms of performance.
It's neat to look at for apples/apples comparisons between modified vehicles. Beyond that, meh.

I'm surprised at how well my cars are doing power/weight wise. Well....Red, The Toyota is doing exactly as I expected it to do :p

@Nic, added torque figure for Mitsu in a comment.

I'll let Nicjasno have the honours as it's too time consuming to enter on the phone.

Do post the torkwe figure as well, please.

Not sure about the torque figures, but Im guessing that its around the 1000nm mark.

Missing displacement and engine type. Is it tuned? Because now i'm looking at stock figures an they are much lower.
