Chip Tuning – better engine management.

The days of fiddling around in the engine bay with a spanner to make the car go faster are numbered.

Modern engine computers (ECU’s) take over many of the controls of all aspects of engine management from timing to fuelling and more.

This actually means you get better power, a cleaner burn and more reliable engine but it does not mean the end of tuning.

Big valve kits – larger intake valves.

The heads primary job is the mixing of fuel and air and delivering this to the combustion chamber.

Any turbulence or drag can restrict the air flow into the engine starving you of power. So this TorqueCars article will focus on the intake valves and how they can be improved.

The aim of head tuning is both to maximise the amount of air and fuel that gets into the engine, and to improve the mixture.

High performance ignition Leads

We look at the benefits of high performance ignition leads and HT leads. Explain what they do and look at the pros and cons and assess the benefits of performance leads.

Induction Kits vs Panel Filters

Explore the differences and benefits of an induction kit compared to panel air filters in real world aplications. Do intake mods help you make more power? Is it worth the cost?
