Yamaha Sport Car

Recently got inquiry from customer on Yamaha outboard gasket, which is not in my current business line, and had been try to look for more info online about those outboard gasket.

The searching is still carry on, as my mind set is Yamaha is good for motorcycle and outboard boat industries, it is a surprise for me when I come across the Yamaha Car during googling.

I have copy some writing from a website about this Yamaha Sport Car.

It's been teased before and we knew that this concept from theYamaha stable is not going to be a bike. The Japanese motorcycle manufacturer today revealed the Sports Ride Concept and yes it's a sports car. Murray has pioneered a new variation of his iStream manufacturing system to create it using new-age carbon fibre technology.

It's taken five months from design to realization and though you might expect the McLaren F1 designer, Murray, to be behind the concept car's design, he wasn't part of it. The team was led by ex-Toyota designer Dezi Nagaya. Nagaya said that there are several design touches that are inspired by Yamaha motorbikes but haven't revealed anymore details about the car.

The new manufacturing system is derived from Gordon Murray Design's iStream manufacturing process which sees the glassfibre being replaced with carbon fibre. It has been developed in conjunction with Japanese firm Toray and you get to see a honeycomb paper core with two carbonfibre skins, which makes things even more interesting.

Yamaha hasn't spilled any beans on the details of the Sports Ride Concept and we really don't want to conjecture much but considering it's a carbon fibre chassis, we expect it to the lighter and somewhere in the range of 900kg. There's no word on the powertrain either and we'll wait for Yamaha to tell us more.

Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost engine

Malaysia Ford Fiesta 1.0 model also come with the EcoBoost engine, this 3 cylinder engine is well known of its light weight of its engine.

Let's us have some fact from Wikipedia,

Ford currently produces a 1.0-litre turbocharged in-line three cylinder engine for the EcoBoost family developed at Ford's Dunton Technical Centre in the UK. Production started in April 2012. The 1.0 comes initially in two versions: 74 kW (101 PS; 99 hp) and 88 to 92 kW (120 to 125 PS; 118 to 123 hp). The more powerful version delivers a maximum of 170 N·m (125 lb·ft) from 1,400–4,500 rpm and 200 N·m (148 lb·ft) on overboost, which makes for a broad torque curve when compared to a naturally aspirated gasoline engine. A 140 PS (138 hp) version has also been released in the Fiesta Red Edition and Black Edition, with 155 lb ft (210Nm) of Torque. The engine block is cast iron instead of aluminum for up to 50% faster warm-up, at the expense of additional weight.
Due to natural vibrations of a 3-cylinder design, the flywheel as with any other engine of similar configuration has been weighted properly to ensure smooth running, without the use of energy sapping balance shafts. The engine also features an internal timing belt, bathed in the engine oil, for long life and greater efficiency and reduced noise. The exhaust manifold is cast into the cylinder head, reducing warm up times and therefore further aiding efficiency. All this is packaged in an engine block the size of an A4 sheet of paper.
With the introduction of face lifted 2013 Ford Fiesta, Ford introduced naturally aspirated version of 1.0 Fox engine. There are two versions producing 65 hp and 80 hp, and both engines use Direct Injection and Ti-VCT like the turbocharged versions. Start-stop technology is also available.
The engines are produced in Cologne, Germany and Craiova, Romania with production to later expand in Chongqing, China. Production is expected to be 700,000–1,500,000 units per year. The engine is available in Ford Focus, the Ford Focus-based C-MAX and Grand C-MAX, and the Fiesta-based B-Max.
Ford has announced that the 1.0L Ecoboost engine will be available for the American market starting with the all-new 2014 Ford Fiesta Sedan and Hatchback. It was announced at the 2012Los Angeles Auto Show, when the 2014 Fiesta was introduced. The 123 hp version is now available in the North American market Focus starting with model year 2015.

Subaru EJ20 Cylinder Head Gasket

Subaru boxer engine already evolve from EJ series to FA and FB series, but EJ series is consider one of the most variety of model under Subaru production, under the engine code of EJ20, EJ22, EJ25 or even some rare EJ16, they have a long list of variety like what they commonly said which generation of EJ20?

Although the variety of rocker cover gasket under EJ20 model is many, the cylinder head gasket also have a different version for different EJ20 engine, but may be not as headache as the rocker cover gasket which may more confusing.
