Aftermarket ECU

Find out what an aftermarket ECU is, how it can improve performance, why you would want to install one and things to look out for when buying an aftermarket ECU online.

Fuel surge tanks

We look at fuel surge tanks explaining what they are, how they work and the typical scenarios where you really need them like when cornering with low fuel in your tank, or to keep up with engine fuel demand on heavy load applications.

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 are stretched tires and are they safe? A question we get asked over and over again but there are 2 schools of thought on this subject and we aim to cover the pros and cons in as open and unbiased way as we can.

This is a tyre which has been fitted to a much wider rim than it was originally intended or designed to fit. Stretches vary from an inch to around 3 inches. It has gained a lot of popularity in VW circles and the look is really starting to take off.
