Dry sumps

Guide to Dry sump engine conversions we look at the advantages and disadvantages and discuss why you would want to convert to a dry sump. A conventional sump is a reservoir at the bottom of the engine from where oil is pumped around the engine. The dry sump relocated this reservoir and offers more efficient lubrication. 

Turbo tuning stage 1-3: Aftermarket OEM turbos upgrade kit.

TorqueCars look at the turbo upgrade options from larger turbos to hybrid turbos and examine the benefits and drawbacks of each option with suggestions on how to choose a suitable turbo upgrade and hit your tuning goals and aspirations.

The more power you want from a turbo the greater the amount of heat it will generate and the bigger the stress on the internal components.

Anti lag systems

We look at Anti lag systems in cars and how these keep the turbo spinning ready to provide boost from low RPM speeds. When you lift off the throttle the engine power cuts and the turbo starts to spool down.

From this low spool state there is a delay while the turbo spins up again before it can provide any useful boost. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of ALS and look at alternative options.

Sports ignition coils and performance coil packs

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.
