Adding a supercharger
supercharger-kit

We look at adding a supercharger to a NASP (naturally aspirated) engine and focus on the main problem areas and considerations encountered in a tuning project of this scope.

There are lots of pitfalls and this is not a “bolt in on and hope it works” modification as many other things need to be done to make this work safely and reliably.

It is possible to blow huge amounts of money on car modifications, ruining your automobile and ending up with a fuel drinking stodgy bone shaker that looks like a tacky Christmas tree from last year. This site is intended to assist you in deciding which mods to do and gives a realistic opinion of what the car will end up like with various levels of modification and gives a common sense guide on the pitfalls to avoid and common mistakes.

Car modification & car styling

Track cars are rebuilt each time they are raced and they are set up for optimum conditions on the flat surface of the track. When it comes to modifying a daily runaround car or hot hatch - we have to tune and apply modifications to our cars to work for a year without a service, run over pot holes and speed humps and cope with a variety of weather conditions and loads. We need to establish the sensible car tuning modifications (car mods) that will cope well with everyday driving but help you to get the maximum enjoyment from it. Styling modifications and car styling trends frequently change, we keep you up to date with the latest styling parts, modifications and tips with practical advice. We also have a new UK version of Torque Cars biased toward our UK users.

My motivation for creating this site was the misleading claims made by the manufacturers of performance parts. They often quote power gains of 30bhp and in reality this was achieved on a v8 engine in ideal lab conditions. In the real world some of these mods can rob you of low down power and Torque.

The first car mods our members do are usually alloy wheels, intake and exhaust and suspension upgrades so you might want to start with these pages.
