The best tuning mods
engine-carbon-cover

What are the best tuning mods for your car? There is a lot of debate in our forums but we have compiled a list of the best tuning mods for this article based on feedback from our members.

We are going to ignore the most popular mods, as these often only turn out to be aesthetic upgrades rather than performance upgrades.

Remaps for diesel engines
remap

Our members frequently talk about their latest mods and power figures. Many of our members have remapped their diesel engines and boast of more power, better economy and unchanged reliability.

But do the claims live up to reality? What sort of power figures can you get from a diesel remap? Diesels have really come so far in a very short time.

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. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of ALS and look at alternative options.

What is an induction kit and what does it do.
air-filter

As induction kits are probably one of the most popular modifications for car tuning projects we thought we should add a introductory article to explain what they are, what they do and the theory behind them.

An induction kit is quite simply an air filter. Most cars have air filters mounted in an air box. These filters are generally constructed of paper which filters out the particles from the air and prevents these from getting into the engine. The airboxes are designed to reduce the noise of the engine and have various vanes and angles cut to maximise this noise reduction.
