Vents – adding performance with Bonnet vents.

Performance gains are possible with the addition of bonnet vents.

Warm air really does kill performance. This is due to the air intake temperatures being hot and air at high temperatures carries less oxygen.

When driving an engine hard the under bonnet temperatures quickly build up and the engine has no choice but to suck this air in reducing your power.

Benefits and drawbacks of engine water injection systems

You’ve finished tuning up your engine but you find that at full throttle the engine splutters or stalls. When you get the car on a diagnostic you find that the knock sensor is kicking in to protect the engine.

Engine knock is a condition where the fuel inside the engine ignites prematurely and occurs within an engine running at high compression. (It can also be caused by other factors including low octane/poor quality fuel or hot spots within the engine.)

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.

Hybrid turbos

As a rule the turbo engines are stronger than the NASP equivalents and are able to handle substantial power gains.

The key thing in a turbo engine is the flow rate that can be generated and this depends largely on the internal profiles of the impellers inside the turbo.

Tyres and tread patterns for High performance cars

Performance tyres, selection and tyre tread patterns. "If you're feeling tyred!" The importance of your cars tires should never be overlooked. A cheap tyre (NB:UK Spelling, USA – Tires!) can reduce your ability to corner on a dry surface by as much a 10-20 mph. In the wet this difference can be much much greater. Most performance tyres […]
