Free Flow Exhaust System

Do Free Flow Exhaust Systems Really Work? In years gone by, engine tuners used to throw three words at you for extracting more performance from your engine. These were head, cam, and exhaust. Because an engine is basically an air pump, the idea is to get more air into...

Altitude Can Determine Your Car’s Attitude

Altitude influence Does altitude influence engine performance at all? Let us think about this for a moment. An internal combustion engine’s power output depends on the amount of air that it can suck into its combustion chambers. The more air it can get, the more fuel...

The Quest For More Power

The Quest for More Power. You are frustrated because you require sufficient power from your car. When you put your foot down flat on the accelerator, your car doesn’t respond with the vigour you desire. Power seems like the elusive Yeti. You service your car, keep it...

The Pursuit Of Efficiency

The Pursuit of Efficiency. Vehicle manufacturers go to great lengths to improve the efficiency of their cars. Engines become smaller, yet more powerful, and a lot more fuel-efficient. Many other technologies help to achieve this, especially when we consider today’s...

Should You Modify Or Optimise?

Modify or Optimise – Choose wisely. Should you modify or optimise? How do you get the most performance from your engine? Most people think that you have to modify your engine to achieve performance. The act of modification usually requires the disassembling, changing...

Power, Heat And Efficiency Loss

The combustion engine is synonymous with power, heat and efficiency loss. The combustion engine work on the principle of igniting fuel in order to propel your vehicle. It is highly likely that this is all we think about when we think of the engine of a vehicle – its core principle. We don’t always think about efficiency loss. Yes, we do indeed think about the performance, but there is something we easily oversee. It is sometimes better not to focus on how well you do in a test. Rather look at what you did not achieve. You may score 75% or 80% and think that the distinction is a great achievement. It is, but consider that there is actually 20 to 25% of the work you don’t know. When you look at it this way, the picture takes on an entirely different image.

Can Vehicle Chip Tuning Achieve Balance?

Vehicle chip tuning nowadays is not as it was in the olden days. In the olden days, it was different. Vehicle tuning and modifying meant we had to ready ourselves to sacrifice some aspect in the process. The following examples may bring this point over in a more practical way. You decide to strengthen your vehicle’s suspension to improve handling and road-holding, but now you are paying the price in ride comfort. You modify your engine to improve horsepower and torque in order to gain better performance, but now you suffer when it comes to fuel economy.
