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.

Fuelling uprating the fuel pump, injectors and fuel pressure regulator

More power means that more fuel is required so we need to uprate the fuel system and we look at performance mods for your fuelling to avoid running rich or lean.

It is essential to keep the mix of air to fuel exactly right. Power is lost when the engine adjusts itself to stop it running too rich or lean. Many power losses, which manifest themselves as flat spots, at certain points in the rev band can often be traced to a fuelling issue so we will look at performance fuelling upgrades and parts.

What is a turbo and how does it work

Tuning turbo engines. "A lot of hot air." What is a turbo and how does  a turbo work?  If you go back to your childhood you probably remember those windmills sold at the seaside. Now imagine a windmill with 2 propellers back to back. As the wind blows the first propeller a shaft turns the second […]

What is an induction kit and what does it do.

As induction kits are probably one of the most popular modifications for car tuning projects we thought we should add a introductory article to explain what they are, what they do and the theory behind them.

An induction kit is quite simply an air filter. Most cars have air filters mounted in an air box. These filters are generally constructed of paper which filters out the particles from the air and prevents these from getting into the engine. The airboxes are designed to reduce the noise of the engine and have various vanes and angles cut to maximise this noise reduction.

Twincharging an engine

We look at the merits of twincharging and how to go about adding a twincharger set up to your car.

Twincharging provides a relatively low cost way to get the best from a supercharger and turbo providing large power gains through the whole RPM band.
