The cooling system in an engine is used to protect the engine from overheating.
An engine’s cooling system works by transferring heat away from the internal combustion chamber, where combustion takes place, through a series of passages called water jackets. Heat transfers into these coolant-filled cavities surrounding parts of the inner combustion chambers. The heat is carried away in hot coolant via paths in the cylinder head and block. Unlike engines that use water for lubrication, oil does not circulate with engine coolant to avoid diluting it with the much less efficient oil when cold. However, the mixture can form when very high temperatures or situations cause mixing, such as cold-weather starting, cold oil conditions, or engine knocking.
Here are the advantages of the cooling system Cambridge
- Increased horsepower
One of the main reasons to use a cooling system cam is to increase horsepower. This is done using a high lift cam, which increases intake and exhaust gas flow. The engine can place more air into each cylinder by opening up the valves more or expelling it faster during each cycle.
- Increased rev limit
Camshafts that are specifically designed with cooling systems in mind have profiles made with an increased ability to reach higher rpm without causing any damage to the motor. This means you could easily get speeds over 9000 rpm when used on motors built for performance over stock applications. Of course, this isn’t recommended if you don’t know what you are doing, so consult your local engine builder for assistance.
- They are inexpensive
These camshafts are typically much less expensive than other more common high-performance profiles, but they are still designed with the same quality of materials to ensure safe operation under stress. This means you get a solid product without breaking your bank account while you plan out your next mod.
- Low noise output
The low noise output of these particular cams is attributed to their unique lobe design that doesn’t overlap between intake and exhaust gases on the timing side, which would produce loud engine sounds heard through the hood or the sound system in some cases. Depending on how noisy it is already at idle/cruise speed on your motor build. This also helps reduce the engine’s overall weight without sacrificing performance.
- They are easy to install
These camshafts are designed with a timing chain that is much easier for the average home mechanic to deal with rather than the timing belt, which typically has to be chiseled off to remove it from underneath the car if it breaks. However, you should still consult your shop manual or an experienced professional before removing or installing any parts on your engine build. So this is just a bonus that makes it easier for you while you plan out your next upgrade!
In conclusion, a cooling system cam is a great way to increase performance on your vehicle without having to spend too much money. If you are looking for an easy and inexpensive way to make some quick power, this is the best choice as long as you know what you are doing.
