Starter motors for 2 litre petrol engines...

Post by riggsyb » 24 Oct 2003, 00:38

How many Watts is an average starter motor for a 2 litre, 4 cylinder Petrol engine?
I need to know for some Automotive Electronics Coursework...
If it helps, I've been given that an engine requires 80NM per litre (so 160NM) at 100rpm (speed required to get cylinders to fire)... But no other information!

Have a gander at this, you would need between 1100 and 1200 watts for a 2.0l, roughly 1.5 hp.
