Honda Indy V6 going Twin Turbo    (Score: 1, Normal) 07-25-2013 18:02

As predicted in this forum many weeks ago, HPD is throwing in the towel on a single turbo V6 for Indycar and going twin turbo for 2014.

Officially, Indycar is REQUIRING that all engines use the same twin turbo spec, so HPD does not have to say that it may have made a mistake for the 2012 season. But the end result is that Honda is switching from single turbo to Twin Turbo for 2014.

So one would suspect that the LMP1 engine based on the Indycar engine would also be twin turbo.

Curiously, they've been on a mini-roll lately. What's the prediction for Mid-Ohio? Can Dixon win another?

Dixon has won four of the last six at Mid-Ohio. And Honda clearly has a driveability advantage now. So why not?

The Mini-roll is that HPD has been looking long and hard for some way to overcome the inherent top end horsepower advantage that the twin turbo Chevy has.

What they have found is a way to make mileage with very good drivability, so they have been very successful on all the road and street courses.

Neither of those "advantages" have anything to do with the single turbo configuration. So, one would hope that next season Honda would have better top end horsepower while maintaining drivability and fuel mileage.

Ilmor is probably scrambling right now. I believe many of their teams are getting a revised engine for Mid-Ohio. We'll see where the pit stops fall.
