Plenum Simulation

For the new turbo engine there were no adequate intake available so I had to design a new one. While I was at it I managed to get some feedback from CFD simulations to spot any potential flaws. The simulation is done with the correct flow data, camdata and all the active engine dimensions. The loadcase is wide open throttle and 0.5 bars of boost at 6000rpm.

Turned out pretty good, small flow imbalance. Less flow in runner #1 and #4 but nothing really alarming. Mass flow is shown in the video, not pressure.
