Please help.

Alright I wouldn't know where to put this or which category. I want to get into college or some kind of class that teaches me the ins and outs of mechanical engineering. I want to redesign the 5.9 cummins engine and other engines I feel could be better. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Most colleges have some sort of mechanical engineering programs. Do a search and should be able to find them. Closest to me is university of Alabama Huntsville. I believe 80% of the students are engineering students. This would most likely be a off topic section post.

I doubt you will redesign the 5.9 since it is discontinued by Cummins. But good luck lots of money to be made in that field.

Iowa state, university of Wisconsin- Madison or platteville; MIT; there are loads of good engineering schools around. The first three listed have a lot of grads at cummins; John Deere; Oshkosh and more.

Get your degrees in mechanical engineering, and CAD design. Then go hog wild later on in life and design an engine which will revolutionize the world.....

One of my biggest things is, I wanna redesign the vp44. Make it so everyone can rebuild it, and so cummins doesn't have money pouring out of there ears for a 200k recalibration bench.. and that's just 1 example

The best VP44 redesign would be elimination of the unit entirely in favour of a better system... i.e. common rail.

The vp44 is an amazing pump as it is. But its not worth the effort to build a better mouse trap. You want to change the game, figure out how to make p7100 swaps more affordable.

You could always use the p7100 as the high pressure pump, then use an inline high pressure solenoid system to control how much fuel and when injected?

OP if you want to make money in your life, forget about trying to "improve" a 20 year old pump. If you wnat to engineer stuff go to school for it and get a job doing it. Forget about trying to fix things that were designed for a time before your birth.

We are being smart donkeys... there is absoluletly no point in what you are wanting to do. by the time you "fixed" the issues the vp44 has you would spend enough for yourself and your entire family to retire.

you are NOT going to "fix" the vp44. Bosch spent MILLIONS designing the vp44 with a team of VERY skilled engineers.
