Blow off valves, dump valves and screamer pipes

Blow off valves and dump valves.
When the throttle is closed (when you lift off the accelerator) in a turbo driven engine there is a build up of pressure as forced air is still coming from the turbo. Lifting off the throttle is a lot like putting a plug in the sink – the flow through is stopped and water would just build up and overflow the sink.

Car modifications

We list the 10 best performance modifications for your engine and list the most effective performance mods.

Choose the right mods needn’t be a mystery with our top 10 guide.

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.

Roll cages & Roll bars custom fitting kits

Many tracks insist that cars are fitted with roll cages and or roll bars. In motor sport competitions you will see that most regulations also insist on a roll-cage. What is the job of a roll cage and are there any advantages to having one fitted? More and more Torquecars members cars are being fitted with roll cages, so is this just a new styling trend or is there something beneficial to the car tuner?

Roll cages offer protection to the driver and tighter body control.
