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. 

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.

Benefits and drawbacks of engine water injection systems

You’ve finished tuning up your engine but you find that at full throttle the engine splutters or stalls. When you get the car on a diagnostic you find that the knock sensor is kicking in to protect the engine.

Engine knock is a condition where the fuel inside the engine ignites prematurely and occurs within an engine running at high compression. (It can also be caused by other factors including low octane/poor quality fuel or hot spots within the engine.)

Converting a FWD to a RWD

We look at converting a front wheel drive car to rear wheel drive. Problems and shortcuts and suggestions for a FWD to RWD conversion project guide. For this reason, most high power cars and motorsport cars have a rear wheel drive setup. Even front engined street cars are converted with a mid mounted engine and rear wheel drive.

Cars are more fun to drive when the power is to the back wheels. It makes for lots of oversteer rather than the safer and more predictable understeer manufacturers build into FWD cars.

Gearbox – Lower ratios give better acceleration times and lower fuel economy. Six or seven speed boxes are better matched to modern engines.

Most street applications are closer 1st and 2nd gear ratios for that off the line 0-60 boost or for the fast exec a lower 2nd and 3rd ratio give improved overtaking flexibility and 30 – 70 mph acceleration with a high 4th and 5th gear to give motorway fuel economy.

Benefits & advantages of Winter tyres & snow tyres

With the poor winter driving conditions hitting the UK in 2010 many drivers are looking at winter tyres. Other countries are prepared for the snow and poor weather and are used to the concept of winter tyres.

So what are winter tyres, what do they do and are they a good idea?

Ceramic exhaust coatings and exhaust wrap

Under bonnet temperatures are one of the biggest performance killers around.

Quite simply, you want your engine to be sucking in cold air as this carries more oxygen and will allow you to burn more fuel.

The exhaust system is one of the contributors to under bonnet temperatures. You can therefore lag the exhaust to help prevent this heat soak into the engine bay.
