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.

Brake upgrade kits.

Adding uprated performance brake kits which include vented and grooved brake discs performance pads and more pistons, with a DOT 5 fluid will improve your stopping power we look at brake kits and discuss the pros and cons and guide you through your brake upgrade project.

The gradual evolution of the automotive engine marches on and we discuss the major developments and innovations in engine technology and fuel types such as Petrol, diesel, LPG hydrogen and electric power.

How to lower the engines compression ratio

Reducing the compression ratio is required if you want to run a high boost supercharged engine. High compression NASP engines are quite efficient but when adding forced induction you want to lower the compression ratio.

The compression ratio has a dramatic effect on an engines performance and the problem of knock, (where the air fuel mix prematurely ignites) is controlled to a large degree by the compression ratio.
