Following our tuning tips you will avoid many of the common mistakes and actually achieve the car setup you desire. 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 Caterham modification help, car track day setup and car tweak suggestions and advice and tips back in 2003 and have grown from strength to strength with a fast growing membership of all types of cars including many, Caterham 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 Caterham comprehensive modification articles on tuning and styling are kept upto date so for the very latest Caterham modification,track day setup and tweak suggestions and advice, tips and pointers please check back regularly – we aim to cover in more detail the superlight, R300,R400 and R500 which are already great track day cars and not very expensive to run and the latest evolution of the Caterham – the CSR and SP/300R. We strongly recommend that you join our Caterham forums and swap modification ideas with like minded Caterham owners in the modification forums.

Turbo tuning stage 1-3: Aftermarket OEM turbos upgrade kit.

TorqueCars look at the turbo upgrade options from larger turbos to hybrid turbos and examine the benefits and drawbacks of each option with suggestions on how to choose a suitable turbo upgrade and hit your tuning goals and aspirations.

The more power you want from a turbo the greater the amount of heat it will generate and the bigger the stress on the internal components.

Chip Tuning – better engine management.

The days of fiddling around in the engine bay with a spanner to make the car go faster are numbered.

Modern engine computers (ECU’s) take over many of the controls of all aspects of engine management from timing to fuelling and more.

This actually means you get better power, a cleaner burn and more reliable engine but it does not mean the end of tuning.

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.
