The Benefits of Performance Injectors vs. Stock Parts

Your car might be performing just fine with stock parts, but, if you’re looking for greater horsepower, torque, and fuel efficiency, consider performance injectors. These injectors can help your engine perform at maximum capacity and boost your fuel economy. Performance injectors work by delivering more fuel into the combustion chamber, greatly increasing your vehicle’s power […]

Boost controllers and remaps

Boost controllers
The turbo is driven by the exhaust gases and the faster the exhaust flows the quicker the turbo spins and more air gets forced in to the engine.

If too much air is forced into the engine then it will run lean. This causes an intermittent loss of power and you also risk putting too much pressure on the engine with a surge of power.

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.

Flywheel lightening & performance gains from lighter flywheels

Lightening the flywheel – the flywheel works in a similar way to the wheel in the toy cars you used to rev up and release and let it zoom off. The heavy wheel located between the engine and the gearbox builds up rotational force with speed and momentum.

Effectively storing the energy and helping the car resist changes in engine speed – good for cruising at a steady speed but bad when you need a fast engine response.
