How to increase the performance of your car
The majority of modern consumer cars come under powered from the factory. This creates for a slow and non-engaging driving experience. Squeezing more power out of your engine can create a new driving experience that is more engaging and fulfilling. Also, you get to go anywhere faster, which is why most people increase the performance of their cars.
Here some tips on how you can improve the performance of your car.
Install a performance intake
Installing a performance intake reduces the restrictions for air getting into the engine allowing it to produce more power and torque. This is probably the cheapest way to improve the performance of your car without affecting its practicality.
Install a performance exhaust
A performance exhaust allows exhaust gases to flow more freely, thereby reducing the exhaust back pressure which reduces the engine power. However, this modification would make your car noticeably louder. Also, it could be illegal in some states so it always a good idea to check your states laws before installing.
Get A Tune Up
Tuning your car allows you to control the air-fuel ratios and hence the power that the engine produces. In some cases, tuning your engine can deliver an increase in power as well as an improvement in fuel economy.
You can reduce the weight of your car by swapping out parts such as fenders, hoods, trunk lids, wheels, and brake rotors with parts that are made out of lighter materials such as alloys, carbon fiber, or glass fiber. You could also choose to strip some of the interior. However, this could affect the practicality of your vehicle. Weight reduction improves the power to weight ratio allowing you to utilize more power from the engine.
These four tips describe the most effective ways of improving the performance of your car.
