Spoiler aerodymics rear spoiler design and construction

We look at how spoilers work? We also explain the difference between a spoiler and a wing. Spoilers are generally closer to the body of the car and help diffuse the air.

Wings are mounted much higher up and have an aerodynamic effect of creating downforce

Choosing cam profile for fast road and track.

Camshafts durations and profiles. "We Cam, we saw, we conqured!" Cam profiles and cam durations. The cam shaft controls the inlet and outlet ports. A pear shaped lobe on the shaft keeps the valve closed until the pointy bit rotates producing lift and opening the valve. Double overhead cams have separate profiles for inlet and […]

Blow off valves, dump valves and screamer pipes

Blow off valves and dump valves.
When the throttle is closed (when you lift off the accelerator) in a turbo driven engine there is a build up of pressure as forced air is still coming from the turbo. Lifting off the throttle is a lot like putting a plug in the sink – the flow through is stopped and water would just build up and overflow the sink.

Twincharging an engine

We look at the merits of twincharging and how to go about adding a twincharger set up to your car.

Twincharging provides a relatively low cost way to get the best from a supercharger and turbo providing large power gains through the whole RPM band.

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.
