Exhaust and jetting
« on: February 10, 2014, 04:57:13 PM »
Curiosity question.

Why is it that a free flowing exhast leans out the fuel mix? How does that work, considering the engine has already turned the fuel into energy and it is expelled beyond the exhaust valve?

Conversely, why does a more restrictive exhaust richen the fuel mix?

Thanks

Because the scavenging of the cylinder changes, so there is less burned and unburned gasses left in the cylinder. These exhaust gasses have the effect of making the engine burn richer.When the exhaust gets more completely scavenged, the mixture is more pure than it was previously, so re-jetting is needed to meet the new combustion conditions which have more fresh air in there..

A less restrictive exhaust system gets more of the exhaust out of the cylinder. A more restrictive exhaust system leaves more of the exhaust inside the cylinder.

Sorry Tom, couldn't resist chiming in even though you already explained it.  The workings of the whole damned universe operate on this one!
