TVR Tuning Tips and Modifications

TVR made a wide range of real drivers car – shunning much of the accepted gadgets like power steering and Aircon. Read our TVR car tuning tips and advice and join our TVR owners club. We have a wide range of tuning articles covering all models of TVR from the classic Tasmin to the modern Tuscan and speed 6. Sadly TVR are no more and it is probably for this reason that TVR are looking to modifications and car tuning to upgrade their cars. Following our tuning tips you will avoid many of the common mistakes and actually achieve the car setup you desire without spoiling that essential TVR ingredient. Please join the forum for model specific questions and answers and to meet other owners and see what modifications they have done.

Increase engine displacement with a rebore.
You can increase the power of an engine by increasing its capacity. This is a fairly involved process and requires a good deal of research and preparation. Unless you want to have to retrace your steps and go a different route midway in to the job.
Some of TorqueCars.com members have had their engines rebored ,and this does seem a good way to increase power. However there are a few things we should take into account.Adding NoS nitrous oxide to boost power gains.
Giggle gas – something to put a smile on your face. "Giggle Gas – Nitrous Oxide (N20) the power button!" NB: NoS is a brand name of a company but many confuse this with the name of the gas Dinitrous Monoxide AKA – Nitrous Oxide N20, Dinitrous Monoxide, Dinitrogen oxide also referred to as Nitrous […]Remaps for diesel engines
Our members frequently talk about their latest mods and power figures. Many of our members have remapped their diesel engines and boast of more power, better economy and unchanged reliability.
But do the claims live up to reality? What sort of power figures can you get from a diesel remap? Diesels have really come so far in a very short time.Stage 1, 2 & 3 tuning mods explained
We hate to shatter the illusion but they are fairly meaningless terms if applied to power gains and cannot reliably be used to explain how much power a modification adds. There is no consistant difference in part makers between their classifications of stage 1 stage 2 and stage 3 mods.
Some tuning companies will just box their parts in packs labelled stage 1,2 and 3 and maybe even 4 or 5. Such labeling is as helpful as a product number and should not be taken as any sort of guarantee of the power gains or suitability for your car.
Todays featured car tuning articleWhat is brake fade and what causes brake fade?
This phenomenon known as brake fade can be quite unexpected and lethal and I would hazard a guess that 1 in 4 cars are likely to experience brake fade to some degree. Brake fade manifests itself by a spongy feel on the pedal and little or no braking force. Do not confuse brake fade with bad brakes or a mechanical fault as it applies to brake systems in relatively good condition.
