NOTE: I'm playing FTB Ultimate pack.
I'm thinking my quarry is horrible powered and highly inefficient. Currently I'm using an Ender Tank pumping lava in from the Nether to power two Thermal Generators. This is hooked up to a BatBox, keeping it maxed out all the time. I then have an Electrical Engine with a Bronze, Tin, and Iron upgrade powering the Quarry.
After re-reading the wiki on the Quarry, it says it can take up to 100 MJ. I believe my Electrical engine (with it's upgrade) is using 27 EU/t and generating 8 MJ/t (is there an MJ reader?). This equates to (30000 EU / Bucket * 8 MJ / 27 EU/t) 8888 MJ / Bucket of lava.
If I wanted to be more efficient on the Lava side of things, wouldn't it make sense to just use Magmatic Engine engines which are at 18000 MJ / Bucket? And if so, I'd need 25 Magamatic Engines to generate the needed 100 MJ/T?
