Seems like the ∆p should be proportional to the ∆T. I am not arguing, just looking for clarification.

Am hoping for some analysis as to why there might be 70% reduction in total temperature with only a 24% increase in compression pressure. Does that mean your engine gets 51% more efficient?

Perhaps your thermocouple is a bit skewed? Wouldn't the numbers go from say 1000°F to 650°F?

“There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
