I, too, am impressed.  The challenges must have been incredible!  It goes to show that things aren't always to simple as they might first appear.  Just like when they were scaling down IC manufacturing, the smaller lines created all sorts of optical and delivery problems.

Too bad I didn't get to see it.  I am always impressed by someone who does a really good job!  Kudos to you and your team!

You're absolutely correct on both counts, KenL. That's why we used quotation marks around the word "hone."

mcj804:  The engine puts out 9.5 bhp, not 13. The 13 lbs cited in the story is the amount of boost from the supercharger. The article doesn't give the weight of the engine, so we can't compute the engine's power to weight ratio. The correct way to evaluate the power output is to say that its specific output is 1.56 bhp/cu.in. This is pretty good. Two of the highest output American V8 engines are those in the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 (1.86 bhp/cu.in.) and the 2013 Corvetter ZR1 (1.69 bhp/cu.in.). The V6 in the 2012 Honda Accord EX-L is rated at 1.28 bhp/cu.in.

mcj084: 1/4 linear scale is 1/64 of the cubic capacity of the original, look at your calcs again!
