Group 7 - GM 2.2 Liter 4-Cylinder Inline Engine
This wiki documents Group 7's reverse engineering of the GM 2.2 Liter 4-Cylinder Inline Engine throughout the Fall 2011 semester. The purpose of this course project was to investigate the product design, functions and correlations of subsystems, and relate specific design aspects to the global, economical, environmental, and societal factors that were considered with respect to their function, and decisions made related to their functionality.
The primary function of the GM 2.2 Liter 4-Cylinder Inline engine is for use in commercial vehicles to allow for user transportation. Our group's dis-assembly of the engine allowed us to analyze the engine piece by piece. This not only allowed us a look at the function of each individual component, but through reassembly and direct analysis we were able to relate each component's function to one another, and correlate them into their respective subsystems within the engine.
