Tuning tips and articles

Engine tuning Transmission tuning Care care Intake & exhaust mods Improve handling Forums

Improving the handling for people first priority in your Venga tuning project. We would go to a maximum drop of 35mm on most models. You risk rubbing on the arches if you go lower than this.

Our aim in Venga engine tuning should be to increase peak power and Torque at the top end.

Keep it looking standard but take off the badges for the ultimate sleeper!

Smaller engines do not provide much of a return in terms of power so start with a bigger engine. Engine swaps are a good option if you have a small engine size.

Tuning modifications.

This list of the stages and modified upgrades are usually fitted by our members, decide how far you want to go before you begin.

Getting the right performance upgrade kits for your planned usage of the car is a time and money saver. Stage 3 motor sport parts just won't work well on the road difficult in stop start traffic.

Stage 1 mods: Remap,Suspension upgrade (drop 30-40mm),Panel air filter,Alloy wheels,Lighter flywheel,Sports exhaust.

Stage 2 mods: Power clutch,Ported and polished head,Fast road cam,Fuel injector & fuel pump upgrades,.

Stage 3 mods: Internal engine upgrades (pistons/head/valves),Engine balancing,Competition cam,Adding or upgrading forced induction (turbo/supercharger),Sports gearbox.

Your aim when tuning should be a nice flat torque curve. You want to avoid sending all the power to be at the top end of the rev range unless you are creating a motor sport car.

The aim of our pointers is to give a little insight into the world of car tuning modifications and point you in the right direction, our forum is where you can ask for more detailed advice and tips on your customized car project, the best uprated upgrades and all aspects of modding cars.A fast road camshaft is one of the best NASP power modifications you can do with a single part fitted to your engine.

It maximises the intake and exhaust durations and pushes up the power if done right. Ideally you'd add other mods and finish up with a remap. TorqueCars would caution you not to go with a motor sports profile cam as this affects the engines idling and general town driving characteristics.When pushing up the power you will need to uprate to the fueling. More power needs more fuel.

Most power losses, flat spots and erratic idling after performance kits are done can usually be traced to fueling or timing issues.Uprating the injectors is another beneficial modification and will deliver sufficient fuel. A fuel pump will only deliver a finite amount of fuel, so you may need to uprate this if your injectors are demanding more fuel.

Intake and Exhaust Tuning.

Breathing mods are usually next up. Contrary to popular belief there is usually very little power gain to be had by fitting an induction kit, they only become beneficial and are recommended after you increase the engines power to the point where the standard air intake box cannot cope! Induction kits can work well on turbo engines and larger engines (if supplied with a suitable cold air feed or air box), generally though we'd just recommend for Venga engines you should just fit a performance panel air filter preferably made from cotton.

Sports exhausts can help equal out the flow of air through the engine. But if the exhaust is too big, ie: it's over 2.5 inches bore, you will lose much of your flow rate and end up lacking power and torque.

Getting a professionally ported and polished head with larger valves can fully release the engines power. Your clutch can fail as you increase the power if it starts to slip and the standard clutches are only ever good for power gains of up to 48%. Fit an uprated clutch to avoid power loss through the transmission. Turbo engines are just pleading to be Reprogrammed. You will see massive power gains on most modern turbo engined cars including diesels making a remap one of the most cost effective and massive modifications for your money.

We've also come across some owners toying with twincharging conversions and making some impressively high power hikes.

The most impressive power gains for NASP engines usually involve the addition of forced induction. Turbos are generally harder to add than a supercharger. It is difficult to map fueling with a turbo as the boost comes on exponentially with revs.

The nice steady boost and rpm characteristics of the supercharger make them simpler to map. Alternatively you could perhaps add water injection to control knock.

Alloy wheel upgrades.

Alloy wheels will help the brakes cool down and are generally lighter than steel ones. The downside to large alloy wheels on your Venga is that you alter your final drive ratio so this will have a negative effect on acceleration and performance.

Due to this we would advise sticking to a maximum wheel size of 16 inches, although we know some of our members have installed larger rims with no problems.
