Fuel and fuel additives octane and pressure boost valves.
fuel-full

Choice of fuel becomes more critical in a high compression or turbo engine. "One of my Pet(rol) hates!" Fuel: this is regulated by a pressurise valve at the engine end – generally more fuel means more power but you also need more air as well – certainly an induction kit on larger engines and preferably a […]

High performance valve springs
race-valve-springs

The valves are like the doorways into the engine and control the flow of the intake air and fuel and then after combustion they control the exit of the exhaust gases.

As you can guess the valve springs work incredibly hard, and as you increase the power of your engine the valve choice is vital.

TorqueCars will now take a look at the many considerations taken into account when selecting valve springs.

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.

Turbo tuning – Aftermarket OEM turbos upgrade kit.
twin-turbo

When it comes to Turbo tuning you have pretty much unlimited potential and a wide selection of options.

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.

Clutch tuning: performance clutch modifications and triple plate clutches setup
clutch

The clutch takes the engine power, and puts this down through the drive shaft, to the driven wheels on the road but allows you to disengage the engine whilst performing a gear change.

Contact like this requires a lot of grip and a fast response. The more power you have the harder it is for the clutch to operate.
