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.

Ceramic exhaust coatings and exhaust wrap

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.

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.

Vernier pulleys

TorqueCars give advice and tips on using vernier pulleys setting them up and how changes to the pulley can alter the power band. With a vernier pulley you have the ability to control the advance or retard on your cam timing and move the power band around.

Principles of porting an engine and big valve conversions

The inlet and outlet ports on the engine block are usually larger than those of the manifolds that connect to them.

This allows for scope in the manufacturing process to allow for mismatched alignment.

Generally the engine ports are larger in the upstream flow direction avoiding turbulance but power gains can be made by matching these up.
