TVR Tuning Tips and Modifications

Maximise your TVRs driving pleasure

TVR made a wide range of real drivers car – shunning much of the accepted gadgets like power steering and Aircon.

Sadly TVR are no more and it is probably for this reason that TVR are looking to modifications and car tuning to upgrade their cars.

Following our tuning tips you will avoid many of the common mistakes and actually achieve the car setup you desire without spoiling that essential TVR ingredient.

TorqueCars started providing TVR performance part tips, car track day setup and car engine tuning advice and reviews back in 2003 and have grown from strength to strength. We are currently one of the fastest growing car tuning clubs around and certainly one of the friendliest. In 2007 we also organised our first full car show.

Our TVR comprehensive modification articles on tuning and styling are kept upto date so for the very latest TVR performance part,track day setup and engine tuning advice, tips and pointers please check back regularly.

If you have a TVR project underway we would love to hear about it, the Gallery section in the forum contains some interesting projects. Scroll down the page to see our latest tuning articles for your TVR.
