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.

Vernier pulleys

TorqueCars give advice and tips on using vernier pulleys setting them up and how changes to the pulley can alter the power band. With a vernier pulley you have the ability to control the advance or retard on your cam timing and move the power band around.

Quick shift gearstick quickshift kits

Being able to change gear as quickly as possible can make a big difference in time critical situations like drag racing and even track day racing.

The slowest component in any car is the driver and there is little that can be done to improve that. A quick shift kit will help to give you the competitive edge by enabling faster gear changes and allowing more ‘feel’ by reducing play.

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.
