"Start with Nissan. There is nothing particularly special about the straight six versus the straight four. Look at the L-series as it has progressed and then look at the KA engines then the SR engines. More and more windage control including massive use of scrapers -- that covers about 35-40 years."
LOL! Kevin, are you my long lost-at-birth brother? The one I got sutck with growing up is so diametrically my polar opposite when it comes to clear thinking logical engineering analysis it's not funny.
Can I adpot you as my little brother? (or big-brother, not sure on your age!)
Points well advised to be taken under advisement, I am continually telling people "Look what the OEM did during developmental work". Those guys have millions of dollars in their R&D budgets, and Legion Accountants who will cut out every possible cost to maximize profit by minimizing construction costs. If they can leave something inside, not seen, off and save even 50 Cents: THEY WILL! To find these items in new engines where they were previously not there, it should speak volumes on their effectiveness!
This goes towards a feud I had with Steve 280Z regarding counterflow injection. I could not give specific examples of where I'd seen it, or why I said what I said---simply because I had signed non-disclosure statements with companies (Kevin mentions one in an earlier post) that prevented me from discussing items for a period of years. It was great when they themselves revealed the technology in a trade publication, as that unbound me from my silence.
But the point remained that there was still a commentary disparaging the technology even when the proof WAS presented.
This brings me full circle to one of my earlier posts... I will not repeat myself, counter to prior habit... LOL
