    I am Making a combustion chamber for a engine with a pipe flange

    I was wondering if this at http://www.homedepot.com/p/HOME-FLEX...-204367280-_-N would work and handle stresses of a piston and gas explosions.

    I found another thing that might work and screw into a pipe or flange that might work. http://www.amazon.com/PT-Coupling-Ap...Shank+Coupling

    You don't have any specifications so just go with carbon or nickel steel.

    Why are you trying to use off the shelf components?

    Yep I wanted to build it instead of a bore out of a block of aluminum. So I wanted buy off the shelf pipes to use for the combustion chamber.

    Hi, just reading through some of these posts regarding combustion. I am sure that anyone would want combustion to be the best it can be. I work for a company called Vestas aircoil, who design and manufacture charge air coolers for large diesel engines and thought I would point out the importance of having the air entering the chamber being at the correct temperature, the cooler the air the denser it is which increased the oxygen content thus improving combustion.
