The VX-100i is, like all Vaxell 4-cylinder engines designed and manufactured by the Polish company Świątek, a 4-stroke boxer engine with direct drive, multipoint injection and dual electronic ignition. It also features a specially designed intake manifold and in-house designed and manufactured camshaft. Air-cooled, with a displacement of 2,275 cm3, it develops 93 HP at 3,180 rpm.
Nowadays, fuel injection is used in all cars. It benefits from decades of development and millions of vehicles built and running every day. So its reliability is nothing like it was in the early days. Fuel injection also means lower fuel consumption, because the right amount of petrol is always injected. But that doesn’t mean there’s any risk of tightening.
