Anyhow, from your eq. before:
volume of air (cu ft/min)= (rpm x cid x VE) * (Manifold Pres + 14.7)/14.7
OR (in SI):
flow rate (m^3/s) ~= (RPM * disp * VE) * (MAP/101.7) *(1/120)
disp in m^3
VE in %
MAP in kPa
at 18psi of boost, MAP = 225kPa
m/s = (7000 * 0.002 * 0.85) * (225/101.7) * (1/120) = 0.219, which putts comp. eff off the charts....

thank you for explaining your answer... time to do some more math now that i have the correct equation.
