Benefits of an intercooler

One problem with a Turbo is the close proximity of the cold intake charge with the hot exhaust temperatures within the turbo.

Don’t forget that a big air intake heat rise comes from the actual compression of air so even supercharged engine will benefit from an intercooler.

If you have ever felt the nozzle on a tyre pump you will realise that when air is compressed it gains heat.

What is an induction kit and what does it do.

As induction kits are probably one of the most popular modifications for car tuning projects we thought we should add a introductory article to explain what they are, what they do and the theory behind them.

An induction kit is quite simply an air filter. Most cars have air filters mounted in an air box. These filters are generally constructed of paper which filters out the particles from the air and prevents these from getting into the engine. The airboxes are designed to reduce the noise of the engine and have various vanes and angles cut to maximise this noise reduction.

Dry sumps

Guide to Dry sump engine conversions we look at the advantages and disadvantages and discuss why you would want to convert to a dry sump. A conventional sump is a reservoir at the bottom of the engine from where oil is pumped around the engine. The dry sump relocated this reservoir and offers more efficient lubrication. 

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.
