It's amazing how quickly things move on in the world of car tuning. In just a short 10 year period you'll often find options that just didn't exist before.

What developments and breakthroughs can you think of that are relatively new in the world of car tuning?

These are all topics we've covered or are working on an article for at the moment, so please add your own new developments and we'll put them on our writing list...

Twin Scroll Turbos - (one for @SLEEPER )
Carbon fiber - (invented for @old-git )
Cryogenic engine treatments
Hybrid Electric turbos (really new, where an electric motor sits on the turbo spine between the intake and exhaust props)
Magnetic ride suspension​

Plug and play EMS / computers that plug into the factory connectors and are far more user friendly and faster/easier to map /adjust /tune.

We should also mention electric supercars (Tesla etc...)

Carbon fiber wheels offer many benefits reducing unsprung mass, they are not as solid as metal rims so there is a little more give and a softer ride with them.
