Have a High Performance Vehicle You Can Be Proud Of - Articles Surfing


Everyone wants their vehicles to perform at their best. For those with high performance cars and trucks, you want the best horsepower and performance available, and that means finding the right performance auto parts for your needs. Here are some basic modifications that you can make to your vehicle to increase horsepower and performance.

You already know that you need to change your disposable air filter when it gets dirty to keep clean air running to your engine. Clean air is good for your engine, but clean cold air is better. A cold air intake brings down the temperature of the air going into a car. A cold air intake system completely replaces the factory airflow assembly which includes the filter, air box and air path allowing more airflow to reach the upper intake. This increases the power of your engine. A secondary benefit to the increased power of a cold air intake system is the more attractive intake sound and engine bay. Unlike some other car performance parts, cold air intake kits are a relatively inexpensive way to boost engine power.

Forced Induction Systems - Superchargers and Turbocharges

Both turbochargers and superchargers force air into your engine's cylinders. As a result, the engine works like the valves and cylinders are larger giving you the effects of a larger engine with less weight. The main difference between the two is their source of power. A supercharger is connected to the drivetrain with a belt. A turbocharger gets its power from the exhaust, forcing more air back into the engine using a turbine. Turbochargers are more efficient, but superchargers are easier to install. Both of these options are very popular car and truck performance options. Whichever way works best for your vehicle, you should see a substantial increase in power.

Exhaust System

Your exhaust can rob your engine of power. An easy way to boost your vehicle's performance is to install headers. With headers, each cylinder has its own exhaust pipe instead of a common manifold. This makes it easier on the engine to push exhaust gases out of the cylinders. By eliminating the manifold's backpressure, the engine performs better and becomes more fuel-efficient as well. A great advantage to installing headers is that they are one of the easiest bolt-on accessories you can use to boost performance.

Modifying your car to increase performance can be an easy, inexpensive modification, or a challenging investment. Either way depends on you and your vehicle needs. Make sure you shop around to find the best quality performance auto parts for the price. After all, it's you vehicle and your work * you want to be proud of it!
