They don't say anything about changing the car so this would be a car that passes tech but is running outside the event regulations for fuel and hybrid deployment like they've sometimes done in testing. Which is a fair bit less ridiculous than Porsche just disregarding half the safety regulations, ripping off a bunch of the equipment necessary to actually run the car in a race, and putting time attack tires, skirts, and active aero on the thing so it's not an LMP1 at all.

And that's going to be the case at Le Mans anyway (plus they'll have a new LM package).

If they're talking about a car like Porsche did, they haven't even decided on that yet, so I doubt that's what they are talking about during LM week(s) next year. The ACO won't let them do that with that car unless it's an unsanctioned event. Maybe they want to try both? Outright lap record and real lap record?
They'll have new LM package for 2020? I thought development was completely done for TS050

Well whatever happens, at least we will have for one final time a great headliner class at Le Mans, free of artificial nonsense, and as fast pace as possible. It will be only six cars (or 7 if Kolles is accepted) and Toyota will win by 10 laps, but it will still be worth of tears. Good memories shall not die.

I'm pretty sure that the LM package is new because they said it was going to follow the hd package of this year with the high nose. Plus the mirror-less look they have going. Might as well go all out with it for the last hurrah.

MFI special edition Motorsport technology details 2019-2020 reports Toyota TS050 hybrid powertrain.

Engine development
There were three weakness points in the Toyota 2015 spec engine.
1) Lack of competitiveness on high altitude circuits.
2) Slowdown of NA engine output improvement pace.
3) Lack of advantage in overtaking due to lack of low-speed torque.
Therefore, Toyota has determined that turbo engine is required.

To increase the theoretical thermal efficiency, it is necessary to raise the compression ratio and specific heat ratio.
Toyota was initially considering an L3 (inline 3 cylinder) engine for 2016 spec.
However, it was found that the load was too high and the strength was insufficient.
Therefore, Toyota examined a four-cylinder engine, and found that the strength was still insufficient.
(V4 was excluded for emotional, not technical, reasons.)

Then finally settled on a V6 2.4l engine. (Toyota was considering 2.1l V6 for 2017.)
When switching to V6 turbo, pendulum absorber was removed to reduce weight (3kg).

Toyota introduced pre-chamber ignition (PCI) in the 2017 spec.
It was a passive PCI with no injectors in the pre-chamber.
Toyota has developed an active pre-chamber as the 2019-20 spec, but has not entered the race due to development freeze.
The introduction of PCI increased the burning rate by 30%.

Lithium-ion Battery
*The battery of the 2016 spec had a heat resistance of 65 degrees, so it was cooled using a radiator and air-con.
*From 2018 when the heat resistant temperature reached 95 degrees, the air-con was abolished and cooled only by a radiator.
This reduced the lap time by 0.26 seconds.
*In addition, the lap time was reduced by 0.08 seconds by reducing the loss of the front MGU in 2018.

Nice information. Thanks for sharing that. I wonder if they are being so open about the engine because they are not going to use it next season? The last time I recall this was the engine of the Porsche 919 V4 being shown off in detail because the car was retired. Obviously the TS050 is on its last season but what of the engine? I think it is amazing that there's still some development that can be done on it as well with the pre-chamber ignition.

Kota Sera (motorsport journalist) says that Toyota denied to show TS050 engine parts such as piston because it uses LMP1 engine technology also to hypercar.

I see. Still up in the air whether it's the same engine or maybe an evolution of it. I could see it using the same engine and I could see it using the same technology such as piston design etc.

Recall a 2016 article where toyota claimed their new 2.4L V6 reached 45% thermal efficiency while old NA 3.4-3.7L barely could reach 40%, need to say however that as far I know, 2016 engine was dropped since 2017 TS050 engine was completely new from scratch.
Same year, mercedes claimed 47% for their f1 ICE.
Could someone kindly write the math formula to calculate hp power from fuel flow, thermal efficiency and a third value that actually can't remember (fuel heating value perhaps?)

I think the fuel type would have to be taken into account. The values from that would need to be calculated. I'm not that proficient in math to know it

V8 was in the TS040, is that what you mean? So the V6 turbo is about 3% more efficient thermally.

I am not sure on the exact math, but that does mean that the V6 makes more power from the same amount of fuel than the V8 did.

Sorry, yes. It's TS040 engine.

MFi says that the average engine power in the habitual use range in 2015 and 2017 is the same.
