So, you are thinking of a Aprilia Ditech design, but with more air injection capacity, if I am understanding you properly. Even systems like this have some issues, and I am not sure if the tech exists yet to overcome it. There is mixture issues that cause starting and running problems. I also have questions on the ability to overcome the speed of the motor with air injection as well as eliminating the compression losses but then injecting air at the top of the stroke, as this is the attempt in cutting down the parasitic losses, right?
