Crankshafts – a complete performance guide

An in depth look at the crankshaft and the performance benefits of flat vs cross plane, cast forged and machined and crankshaft lightening. The crankshaft has a big impact on the performance of the engine and the delivery of power.

Adding a supercharger

We look at adding a supercharger to a NASP (naturally aspirated) engine and focus on the main problem areas and considerations encountered in a tuning project of this scope.

There are lots of pitfalls and this is not a “bolt in on and hope it works” modification as many other things need to be done to make this work safely and reliably.

Best engine for your tuning project

We compare the RB25 vs RB26 vs VR38 vs SR20 vs FA20 vs 1JZ vs 2JZ to find the best engine for your tuning project. Our simple guide gives power limits and options for each engine. There are some favorite engines out there and people are passionate about which one is the best so we will give you a good side by side overview of the most popular engines to help you decide.

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.

High performance engine tuning mods that improve performance.

Careful selection of your internal engine tuning modifications can lift your engine from a purring kitten into a roaring lion!

While it is tempting to throw in every modification you can, it’s worth noting that not all mods work well together. This is something we cover in our articles as we steer you to the right decision on mods for your car.

Boost controllers and remaps

Boost controllers
The turbo is driven by the exhaust gases and the faster the exhaust flows the quicker the turbo spins and more air gets forced in to the engine.

If too much air is forced into the engine then it will run lean. This causes an intermittent loss of power and you also risk putting too much pressure on the engine with a surge of power.

Anti lag systems

We look at Anti lag systems in cars and how these keep the turbo spinning ready to provide boost from low RPM speeds. When you lift off the throttle the engine power cuts and the turbo starts to spool down.

From this low spool state there is a delay while the turbo spins up again before it can provide any useful boost. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of ALS and look at alternative options.
