What happens inside the intake manifold of a Toyota Supra while drivingSeptember 8, 2020
An action camera helped to look inside the engine
A video was published on the Warped Perception Youtube channel in which the American video blogger decided to see what was happening inside the Toyota Supra Turbo intake manifold. To see the hidden process in the car’s engine, he used an action camera.
To conduct the experiment, the blogger installed a GoPro camera in the intake manifold of his Toyota Supra Turbo A80. He received a picture from an action camera on his smartphone in real time while driving. To fix the device, he had to use a special device, otherwise the pressure could suck in the chamber and the damage to the motor would become irreparable.
The posted video shows how the valves open and close. It would be interesting to see what happens when the throttle is fully open or the rev cut is applied. However, such conditions could seriously damage the camera, which, as a result of the experiment, already significantly overheated. In addition, during the ride, the GoPro recorded a small oil leak. The blogger will probably have to tackle the engine of his Supra.
In early August, the same video blogger decided to demonstrate what is happening inside the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG, driving on smooth asphalt and on a bad road surface with potholes. To do this, he placed the action camera inside the tire.
