(Gurun) and Perda-Tech (Nibong Tebal) were participated in the workshop.


The one day short course included three technical sessions. The sessions presented and underscored topics ranging from the carbureted AFR tuning, and AFR measurements via wide-band O2 sensors. Compression ratio measurement and calculation is enumerated.  The difference between “fast” and ‘”slow” combustion chambers is covered.  Overall power equation is explained with ramifications of each parameter independently.  Intake and Exhaust Tuning fundamentals are explained followed by ignition timing and knock.  Finally, Valve timing Bulk Motion are explained in terms of their effect on engine power.


Participants were also being brought to school’s Engine Laboratory, with Dr. Teoh Yew Heng leading the tour. This lab tour allowed them to take a closer look at the equipment and machinery that were constructed as well as research activities that are currently present in the school.
