We have a wide range of tuning articles covering all models of Datsun from small engined family cars to large engine hot hatches and executive cars. Following our tuning tips you will avoid many of the common mistakes and actually achieve the car set up you desire. Please join the forum for model specific questions and answers and to meet other owners and see what modifications they have done.

Benefits & advantages of Winter tyres & snow tyres
snow-tyres

With the poor winter driving conditions hitting the UK in 2010 many drivers are looking at winter tyres. Other countries are prepared for the snow and poor weather and are used to the concept of winter tyres.

So what are winter tyres, what do they do and are they a good idea?

Power gains from a sports catalyst
cat-Exhaust

Catalysts are a vital component in our modern tree hugging environmentally conscious society. First TorqueCars will look at what a catalyst does and how it works.

A catalyst is actually a term used to explain anything which accelerates or performs a chemical reaction. In a car the exhaust fumes are fed through a matrix of ceramic honeycomb lined with precious metals.

What is an induction kit and what does it do.
air-filter

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.

Comparison of Turbo’s and superchargers
turbo-exhaust

Both work on the same principle they blow air into the engine under pressure. Both have a turbine which spins up depending on the engine speed and the higher the revs the greater the volume of air is forced into the engine. But there are some major differences between the two and which is best for your project?
