Why do we need intake valves?

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

I’m not a mechanical engineer, this is all armchair philosophy stuff to me, but it seems since we have fuel injectors, maybe we could dispense with intake valves and have fuel-and-air-mixture injectors instead. It would free up a bunch of space at the cylinder head. maybe centering the exhaust valves would cause some kind of efficiency win. I dunno just thought of it the other day.
