Remapping the ECU – remaps benefits and issues

Back in the good old days – the task of timing the ignition spark was performed by the distributor. The greater the RPM, the more the timing would advance.

This did a reasonable job but for the most effective power you would need to vary the timing to a greater degree than a fixed ratio advance curve. The electronic ignition system was borne.

Big valve kits – larger intake valves.

The heads primary job is the mixing of fuel and air and delivering this to the combustion chamber.

Any turbulence or drag can restrict the air flow into the engine starving you of power. So this TorqueCars article will focus on the intake valves and how they can be improved.

The aim of head tuning is both to maximise the amount of air and fuel that gets into the engine, and to improve the mixture.

Crankshafts – a complete performance guide

An in depth look at the crankshaft and the performance benefits of flat vs cross plane, cast forged and machined and crankshaft lightening. The crankshaft has a big impact on the performance of the engine and the delivery of power.

Boost controllers and remaps

Boost controllers
The turbo is driven by the exhaust gases and the faster the exhaust flows the quicker the turbo spins and more air gets forced in to the engine.

If too much air is forced into the engine then it will run lean. This causes an intermittent loss of power and you also risk putting too much pressure on the engine with a surge of power.

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.
