TorqueCars started providing Caterham modification help, car track day setup and car tweak suggestions and advice and tips back in 2003 and have grown from strength to strength with a fast growing membership of all types of cars including many, Caterham owners. We are currently one of the fastest growing car tuning clubs around and certainly one of the friendliest. In 2007 we also organised our first full car show.

We strongly recommend that you join our Caterham forums and swap modification ideas with like minded Caterham owners in the modification forums.

Turbo tuning stage 1-3: Aftermarket OEM turbos upgrade kit.

TorqueCars look at the turbo upgrade options from larger turbos to hybrid turbos and examine the benefits and drawbacks of each option with suggestions on how to choose a suitable turbo upgrade and hit your tuning goals and aspirations.

Stage 1,2,3 remaps and mods

We wish people would stop using stage to describe a tuning option or plan but while they do we’ll define here what we mean and expect when we talk about the term.

We get asked so much about this that we wanted to spell out what we mean and most car modders mean when talking about stage 1, 2 or 3 remaps and mods. We look at the various stages of remap available and the mods that would work best on stage 1, 2 and 3 upgrades. Each level of remap carries risks and drawbacks so we will outline them here.
