Description
Stoic Joker's EDC was written to allow the user to calculate the displacement (size) of an engine using the bore diameter, stroke length and number of cylinders. It will also calculate the compression ratio if the combustion chamber and piston dome/dish measurements (use negative number for dish) are entered. Also for the compression ratio calculations the volumes - which are correctly done as a wet measurement - can be ballpark calculated using dry measurements, but this should only to be used for very rough (ballpark) estimate as it assumes a symmetry that almost never actually exists.

Features
Various engine configurations can be stored in list view (per session only) for comparison to dial in a desired target displacement/CR.

Planned Features
None currently

While certainly not something that I have use for, it looks pretty cool.

Can you give us some insight into who would use such a thing and for what purpose?

Mouse, a auto mechanic might be interested in this.  But I would say it fit a hot rodder or engine rebuilder better.

LOL ... Yes, I was kind of expecting a WTF? reaction. :)

This is for performance engine builders (motorcycle[me]/car/truck/etc.) who want a quick way of calculating the impact an engine modification will have on its displacement (a.k.a. its size - i.e. how much bigger will it get if I increase X by Y).

So if I have a bike with a 103 cubic inch engine (which I do), and I want to increase the engine size to (say...) 120+ cubic inches (which I do), this will tell me how much bigger I have to make which measurement to achieve that goal.

Thanks man!

Bingo! ;)

I believe the acronym is BAMF!

Cool! 30 years ago I would have been interested when doing my own VW rebuilds. Sorry to say I even take my car to car to the shop for an oil change these days....
