BMW water injection and how it works to make +50 hp

Posted By on January 17, 2019

One of my favorite YouTube channels is Engineering Explained and in this video car guru and mechanical engineer Jason Fenske explains just how BMW used water injection to increase power at full throttle and high manifold pressures. Great stuff.

And if this kind of "automotive engineering stuff" interests you and you like aviation like me, check out this explanation as to while the WW2 German ME 109G was slower than the U.S. P51 — the differences and decisions made in producing and modifying the Daimler Benz DB 605 and Merlin 1650 below (think FUEL quality).
