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.

How to lower the engines compression ratio

Reducing the compression ratio is required if you want to run a high boost supercharged engine. High compression NASP engines are quite efficient but when adding forced induction you want to lower the compression ratio.

The compression ratio has a dramatic effect on an engines performance and the problem of knock, (where the air fuel mix prematurely ignites) is controlled to a large degree by the compression ratio.

DMF vs solid flywheel conversions

We look at the benefits and disadvantages of solid flywheel conversions from a DMF and help you decide which is right for you.

It is our considered opinion that unless a car is used extensively for competition or off road you should stick with a DMF. The additional torque caused by tuning an engine or heavy competition use can quickly destroy a DMF. The solution would be to fit a stronger, higher performance DMF but the aftermarket industry seems geared up to offer solid ones as the upgrade option.

Dry sumps

Guide to Dry sump engine conversions we look at the advantages and disadvantages and discuss why you would want to convert to a dry sump. A conventional sump is a reservoir at the bottom of the engine from where oil is pumped around the engine. The dry sump relocated this reservoir and offers more efficient lubrication.

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.

Gaining power from the addition of an intercooler

One problem with a Turbo is the close proximity of the cold intake charge with the hot exhaust temperatures within the turbo.

Don’t forget that a big air intake heat rise comes from the actual compression of air so even supercharged engine will benefit from an intercooler.

If you have ever felt the nozzle on a tyre pump you will realise that when air is compressed it gains heat.

What is brake fade and what causes brake fade?

This phenomenon known as brake fade can be quite unexpected and lethal and I would hazard a guess that 1 in 4 cars are likely to experience brake fade to some degree. Brake fade manifests itself by a spongy feel on the pedal and little or no braking force. Do not confuse brake fade with bad brakes or a mechanical fault as it applies to brake systems in relatively good condition.
