Any MAC or Snap-On truck/dealer has a universal calibration tool that will check the calibration. The issue is that if they are "off", they will probably not have parts if needed, or perhaps the ability to adjust if the tool is not their brand or a similar popular style tool. AngleRepair will do it for $25 and some shipping if you can part with it for a ...

Torque doesn't matter. It's power. The difference is that diesel engines have their peak power at lower RPM compared to petrol engines. Same power at lower RPM means more torque. (Think about: The motor of my car has max. torque of 95Nm. I torque the wheel lugs with 110Nm by hand. So why can the motor accelerate my car to 150km/h, while I can push it to ...

Gas engines are capable of much higher rpm than diesels, so your top speed with gas would be higher. I don't think if it is possible to build equivalent gas and diesel engines that have similar weight and HP.

No, you do not need to remap your ECU This doesn't have anything to do with your air fuel ration and ignition timing. You are simply changing the gear ratio for your final drive. Making the sprocket larger will make all of your gears a bit shorter and reduce your top end speed. I typically do this on most of my motorcycles as it makes for better city ...

Changing your rear sprocket won't give you more mid range or change the engine power curve in any way. It will alter the torque at the rear wheel at all RPMs. The bike should accelerate faster through the gears but you will also loose out on top speed. You don't need to get dyno tuned just for changing a sprocket. He may however have been implying that to ...

Most of my answer will be closely related to this answer: BSFC (Brake Specific Fuel Consumption) - How is this a beneficial measurement? Q1. The force in each stroke is directly related to the torque. There is less force in each stroke as the torque is decreasing. Power will increase with RPM to a certain point as power is a function of force over time. ...

Torque is a rotational force. It is a measurement of how hard it is applying force that causes the crankshaft to rotate. Torque is not a very good unit of measurement for an engine because it does not take into consideration how fast the output shaft rotates. For example, given an engine with 100 lb-ft. of torque, if you put that output through a 10:1 ...
