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.

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.
