TVR Tuning Tips and Modifications

Maximise your TVRs driving pleasure

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.

TorqueCars started providing TVR performance part tips, car track day setup and car engine tuning advice and reviews back in 2003 and have grown from strength to strength with a fast growing membership of all types of cars including many, TVR owners. We are currently one of the fastest growing car tuning clubs around and certainly one of the friendliest. In 2007 we also organised our first full car show.

Our TVR comprehensive modification articles on tuning and styling are kept upto date so for the very latest TVR performance part,track day setup and engine tuning advice, tips and pointers please check back regularly. We strongly recommend that you join our TVR forums and swap performance part ideas with like minded TVR owners in the performance part forums.

If you have a TVR project underway we would love to hear about it, the Gallery section in the forum contains some interesting projects. Scroll down the page to see our latest tuning articles for your TVR.

Diesels? On Torquecars, Really?

Comparison of Turbo’s and superchargers

Both work on the same principle they blow air into the engine under pressure. Both have a turbine which spins up depending on the engine speed and the higher the revs the greater the volume of air is forced into the engine. But there are some major differences between the two and which is best for your project?

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.

Vents – adding performance with Bonnet vents.

Performance gains are possible with the addition of bonnet vents.

Warm air really does kill performance. This is due to the air intake temperatures being hot and air at high temperatures carries less oxygen.

When driving an engine hard the under bonnet temperatures quickly build up and the engine has no choice but to suck this air in reducing your power.
