Technology - Cylinder Head and Auxiliary Components

MOTORAV developed a totally new cylinder head design for its engine.

The new design considered a full performance analysis to develop and optimize the intake plenum size and volume, intake and exhaust manifolds, cylinder head ports, intake and exhaust valve diameters, camshaft profile, valve spring stiffness and pushrod material.

It was also developed a CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) study to confirm the mixture flow inside cylinder head intake and exhaust ports.

After the design, Motorav performed a Magma gravity casting simulation, to evaluate the metal filling and solidification of aluminum alloy inside the casting die.

The cylinder head, which is produced by gravity casting, is also machined and assembled by MOTORAV LTDA.
