No4 Posted January 26, 2004 Share Posted January 26, 2004 Dr Hans was asked by Private Message to provide the following essay .Volkswagen V10 5.0 Litre 400 hp Turbo Diesel Thielert 4.0 V8 Mercedes Benz Turbo Diesel, fully certified with Constant Speed Propeller, 285 kg ready to start. euro 50,000 . http://www.centurion-engines.com/c40/c40_start.htm That is my benchmark. The performance in a four seat heavy gross weight Cozy would be incredible. However, it being most unlikely that I will afford it, I must do my best to emulate it. The new VW Toureg 4x4, and Phaeton luxury beasts have been launched with the 315 hp V10 Turbo Diesel. This is not an engine to compare to an IO-360, but with a TIO-540. This is a much better article than I could ever explain here about the standard engine. http://www.germancarfans.com/news.cfm/newsid/2030324.001/volkswagen/1.html With a chip upgrade, they promise 375 hp at 3750 rpm, and peak torque up to 820 nm at 2000 rpm, which is 171 Kilowatts, which is 230 horsepower. This engine could drive a semi trailer. click here http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://chiptuning.speed-buster.de/&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dvolkswagen%2Bv10%2Btuning%2Bdiesel%26start%3D60%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26oe%3DUTF-8%26sa%3DN then click "Tuning Kit", then "VW Volkswagen", then "Toureg", then "5.0 V10 TDI". As the cost and maintenance of a constant speed prop are prohibitive for me, the V10's wide power band is essential, and I seem unlikely to utilise more than 300 hp. With a 2:1 reduction drive, and a five blade wooden prop, I would like 3500 rpm (@250 hp) to equate to 300 knots, and so 2000 rpm (230 hp) should equate to 170 knots. Hopefuly it will make a deep "whump whump" noise that scares away small children and farm animals.
