Car & engine tuning
– unbiased advice from pros.

Choosing your modifications carefully will ensure you get a reliable car that is fun and rewarding to drive.

Our unbiased car tuning guide is intended to assist you in deciding which mods to do and gives a realistic appraisal of the effectiveness of each modification. We are not swayed by marketing materials and try to present the facts about each mod.

Competition cars get rebuilt regularly and operate with premium fuels and on smooth tracks – sadly we have to tune our cars to work for a year without a service, cope with potholes and speed bumps and cope with a variety of weather conditions and loads along with varying fuel quality. Compromises must be made but we will highlight your best options for each car.

Building a 10 second car

We look at what it takes to build a 10 second car and examine the power and weight requirements to reach the sub 11 second goal on the drag strip.

Follow our tips and you can make a 10 second car quite cheaply and within your budget with some power mods and serious weight reduction.
