Tuning boxes

Tuning boxes are often slated because there are so many rip off devices around. We look at the truth about tuning boxes and help our readers identify the piggy back ecu’s that are worth having. What does a piggy back ECU do? How do they work and are they worth buying?

Dry sumps

Guide to Dry sump engine conversions we look at the advantages and disadvantages and discuss why you would want to convert to a dry sump. A conventional sump is a reservoir at the bottom of the engine from where oil is pumped around the engine. The dry sump relocated this reservoir and offers more efficient lubrication. 

What is an induction kit and what does it do.

As induction kits are probably one of the most popular modifications for car tuning projects we thought we should add a introductory article to explain what they are, what they do and the theory behind them.

An induction kit is quite simply an air filter. Most cars have air filters mounted in an air box. These filters are generally constructed of paper which filters out the particles from the air and prevents these from getting into the engine. The airboxes are designed to reduce the noise of the engine and have various vanes and angles cut to maximise this noise reduction.

How to add a turbo to a non turbo car.

The basic reason for forced induction (turbo or supercharger) is not to increase compression or the maximum pressure in an engine cylinder, it is to increase volumetric efficiency (the efficiency of the engine at drawing in air) although forced induction is the most effective method of upping compression.

In computer games we just tick a box, and within seconds our car is fully turbocharged and running much faster. In the real world things are very different.

Gaining power from the addition of an intercooler

One problem with a Turbo is the close proximity of the cold intake charge with the hot exhaust temperatures within the turbo.

Don’t forget that a big air intake heat rise comes from the actual compression of air so even supercharged engine will benefit from an intercooler.

If you have ever felt the nozzle on a tyre pump you will realise that when air is compressed it gains heat.
