Ceramic exhaust coatings and exhaust wraps
Under bonnet temperatures are one of the biggest performance killers around.
Quite simply, you want your engine to be sucking in cold air as this carries more oxygen and will allow you to burn more fuel.
The exhaust system is one of the contributors to under bonnet temperatures. You can therefore lag the exhaust to help prevent this heat soak into the engine bay.Benefits & advantages of Winter 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?How to lower the engines compression ratio
Reducing the compression ratio is required if you want to run a high boost supercharged engine. High compression NASP engines are quite efficient but when adding forced induction you want to lower the compression ratio.
The compression ratio has a dramatic effect on an engines performance and the problem of knock, (where the air fuel mix prematurely ignites) is controlled to a large degree by the compression ratio.High performance engine tuning mods that improve performance.
Careful selection of your internal engine tuning modifications can lift your engine from a purring kitten into a roaring lion!
While it is tempting to throw in every modification you can, it’s worth noting that not all mods work well together. This is something we cover in our articles as we steer you to the right decision on mods for your car.

Lets look at the job of the coil in the spark system and see what it does.
Just as a power transformer converts mains 240 volts into a usable 9 volts for your charger or appliance a coil will increase the voltage.
A car battery/alternator will produce a paltry 12volts, certainly not enough to jump an air gap and create a spark.
An ignition coil raises the voltage in some installations between 20 and up to 40,000 volts and this allows the creation of a spark which can jump the air gap between the plugs.
