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.

Throttle bodies

It is time to blow open the world of throttle bodies, see what they are, how they work, and what effect they have on performance. Typically the most common modifications are around the exhaust systems and induction kits, however, you should also consider the addition of high performing throttle body to your vehicle.

In this article, we’ll cover all that you need to know about throttle bodies, throttle body conversion, benefits, problems, and replacement costs.

Principles of porting an engine and big valve conversions

The inlet and outlet ports on the engine block are usually larger than those of the manifolds that connect to them.

This allows for scope in the manufacturing process to allow for mismatched alignment.

Generally the engine ports are larger in the upstream flow direction avoiding turbulance but power gains can be made by matching these up.

High performance valve springs

The valves are like the doorways into the engine and control the flow of the intake air and fuel and then after combustion they control the exit of the exhaust gases.

As you can guess the valve springs work incredibly hard, and as you increase the power of your engine the valve choice is vital.

TorqueCars will now take a look at the many considerations taken into account when selecting valve springs.
