People have always quoted inner beauty to be superior to the external beauty then why doesn’t the same happen when it comes to enhancing the inner beauty of a car. Yes, you heard it right the inner beauty of a car. The engine and the transmission are the most important internal part of a car, which many people tend to ignore when it comes to customization. Sometimes I do wonder and even laugh while seeing a car which looks really fast but isn’t that fast or does not have brutal accelerations. It’s like a blonde which looks good from the outside but seriously dumb from the inside. Don’t make your automobile look dumb.. don’t worry you can invest without hesitations she won’t leave (#Nobreakups). Now let’s not deviate from the topic and check ways to increase the performance of your car.
The steps are,
1) Installing an Air Filter :
It is the cheapest way to increase the performance of your car. Using a stock Air filter which is made of paper isn’t that useful nor delivers good performance in comparisons to the filters which use oiled foam or cotton. The filters with oiled foam and cotton are not restrictive as the paper filters, they help the engine suck in more air than the normal paper filter which helps in increasing the performance of the car.
Cold Air Intake: The air coming into the engine gets cooler which becomes denser, as you all know that the engine operates by taking in the air, mixing it with fuel and burning the mixture to produce power, the denser the air – the more power it will produce. Cold air intakes feature an innovatively shaped filter that offers an increased surface area to pull air through, sometimes up to 3x the size of your factory air filter. Cold air intakes are also designed to reduce air flow resistance and unwanted turbulence within the pipes which would reduce airflow into your engine.
2) Fitting a Larger Diameter Throttle Body:
Installing a large-diameter throttle body with bigger flaps allows more air to flow into the engine. A larger throttle body delivers air at a higher rate which increases acceleration and a hike in engine power by up to 25 hp. For even better results, installing a throttle body spacer will further enhance your fuel economy and increase engine torque.
3) Mounting an Exhaust Header:
Exhaust Header helps to move air as much effect as possible, this effective moving of air helps you increase horsepower as well as torque. As there are short headers and long tube headers the short tube headers are helpful in developing HP and torque during low range RPMs while long tube headers are the best during mid range and high range RPMs in boosting torque and HP.
4) Superchargers and Turbochargers:
Mounting this to your engine with compress the air flowing into a car’s engine which automatically increases the performance of the engine. By adding more air, the engine can also mix in more fuel, so a charged engine produces more power overall, which significantly improves acceleration superchargers are powered by a belt that connects directly to the engine while a turbocharger gets its power from the exhaust system. Turbochargers are more efficient since they use “wasted” energy from the exhaust stream as their power source and also decrease the fuel consumption rate. Superchargers, on the other hand, offer almost instant power when you step on the gas and are usually easier to install.
5) Performance Chips & Programmers:
The chips which are installed by the company are the reasons why many cars can’t perform to their capabilities. Installing these chips or going to a programmer can unchain these restrictions and without installing a single part you can increase the performance of a car.the Nissan Skyline GT-R is the best example for such modification.
6) Remove Extra weight:
Making the car lighter is also a trick through which you can increase the performance of your car. Installing tires and rims which are light weighted and durable are one of the best tricks to loosen the weight of the car.
