Stage 1, 2 & 3 tuning mods explained

We hate to shatter the illusion but they are fairly meaningless terms if applied to power gains and cannot reliably be used to explain how much power a modification adds. There is no consistant difference in part makers between their classifications of stage 1 stage 2 and stage 3 mods.

Some tuning companies will just box their parts in packs labelled stage 1,2 and 3 and maybe even 4 or 5. Such labeling is as helpful as a product number and should not be taken as any sort of guarantee of the power gains or suitability for your car.

Tuning boxes

Tuning boxes are often slated because there are so many rip off devices around. We look at the truth about tuning boxes and help our readers identify the piggy back ecu’s that are worth having. What does a piggy back ECU do? How do they work and are they worth buying?

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.

Fuelling uprating the fuel system

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.
