^ thts true, however it would be more impressive out of an actual mini engine. Anyone can make power out of a ls motor.

My last comment was talking about any motor that gets built for power. A motor is a motor nothing special they are all air pumps. It's all the factors I just talked about that make it a viable producer of power.

How is it that it won't have carbon build up? It will still be direct injection right?

With the n18 the carbon build up issue was "fixed" however if you drive like a maniac all the time and change you oil/ take care of your car you wont have any issues. May car is pushing to 80k now and never had an issue with carbon build up.

The more scientific reason is what is called reversion which is air going backwards back through the intake port with unburnt fuel or oil that has gotten past the rings mixed. Its not because its a direct injection motor or anything. Cam timing can correct the reversion...by closing the intake a few degrees sooner.

They made better injectors and upped the fuel pressure. went from 120psi max for the n14 to 380 psi max for the n18.
