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.

High performance ignition Leads

We look at the benefits of high performance ignition leads and HT leads. Explain what they do and look at the pros and cons and assess the benefits of performance leads.

Stretched tires legal & safe?

What are stretched tires and are they safe? A question we get asked over and over again but there are 2 schools of thought on this subject and we aim to cover the pros and cons in as open and unbiased way as we can.

This is a tyre which has been fitted to a much wider rim than it was originally intended or designed to fit. Stretches vary from an inch to around 3 inches. It has gained a lot of popularity in VW circles and the look is really starting to take off.

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.
