DMF vs solid flywheel conversions

We look at the benefits and disadvantages of solid flywheel conversions from a DMF and help you decide which is right for you.

It is our considered opinion that unless a car is used extensively for competition or off road you should stick with a DMF. The additional torque caused by tuning an engine or heavy competition use can quickly destroy a DMF. The solution would be to fit a stronger, higher performance DMF but the aftermarket industry seems geared up to offer solid ones as the upgrade option.

Low ratio sport gearbox setup and selection.

Gearbox – Lower ratios give better acceleration times and lower fuel economy. Six or seven speed boxes are better matched to modern engines.

Most street applications are closer 1st and 2nd gear ratios for that off the line 0-60 boost or for the fast exec a lower 2nd and 3rd ratio give improved overtaking flexibility and 30 – 70 mph acceleration with a high 4th and 5th gear to give motorway fuel economy.

Turbos Explained

Let’s look at some questions that we’ve had about turbos “what is a turbo” “why were turbos invented” and “how do they work “, “what are blow-off valves”, “what’s a wastegate actuator do” and “what are twin scroll turbos & what’s the difference between them and standard turbos”?

Stage 1,2,3 tunes or remaps and mods

We wish people would stop using stage to describe a tuning option or plan but while they do we’ll define here what we mean and expect when we talk about the term.

We get asked so much about this that we wanted to spell out what we mean and most car modders mean when talking about stage 1, 2 or 3 tunes or remaps and mods. We look at the various stages of tune/remap available and the mods that would work best on stage 1, 2 and 3 upgrades. Each level of tune/remap carries risks and drawbacks so we will outline them here.
