I saw a video clip on tractors that explained how this could work recently and the guy fit a bigger tractor carb on his tractor. Interesting stuff, but I wouldn’t really want that restriction on my truck. But it is possible.

Clean your room before you criticise the world.
Im thinking that theres something to what this guys getting at. Some type of cross between tiny Arduino ECM and a carb.

The benefits of which I'm not certain of right this minute. Perhaps ease of use?
Maybe a 2.3l would be a better candidate for it?

It is kinda neat but I guess I don't really see a practical application for it.

Especially on tractors that generally run at a constant RPM. Like what, 500 to 2000 roughly, nothing like a 800 to 5000+ rpm variance in automotive.

I also don't really get tractor carb sizing either, my smallest tractor has the biggest carb from the the factory (and it practically runs on air)

If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
When I was a kid I built a lot of air cooled VW's- usually because they'd swallowed the head of the #3 exhaust valve. I had a bunch of torn up heads and smashed pistons so I built a 2 cylinder engine using only cylinders 2 & 4 and stuck it on my off road buggy. It ran but it was gutless and useless- just like this guys project. I give him points for building it instead of playing video games, all the same.
