Many car owners have a simple desire of making their cars to run faster. There are different ways to achieve this, such as by using turbochargers or improved air intake. However, when we do this, it is important to start with the cheapest modification possible. Even the most affordable improvement could provide at least slight improvement in performance, as long as it has been verified by experienced mechanics. As an example, we may check the spark plugs, because bad spark plugs could significantly disrupt the overall performance of our car. Old spark plugs could be corroded and start to malfunction. This will have an effect on the overall performance of the car. It is a good idea to consider replacing spark plugs after 15,000 miles of usage. Spark plugs are affordable and some car owners may do it on their own. Air intakes are also affordable modification that we can add to our cars. At a low cost, we could gain significant improvement in performance. As an example stock air intake can be replaced with short ram air intake or cold air intake. This will help to make our car to run faster. Generic air intake often has limited air flow that can prevent our car from operating at maximum capacity. Both air intake models could cost us less than $100 and it’s quite easy to install.
It is also a good idea to modify the exhaust system. As an example, we may use the better and bigger version. As an example, cat-back and exhaust downpipe system could help to make our car runs faster. Backpressure in the exhaust system can be reduced by using proper modifications. The engine power of our engine can be enhanced significantly. Cat back exhaust kit may cost us $400 or a little bit more, while exhaust downpipes could be available at around $250. A good way to increase the speed of our car is by reducing the overall weight. As an example, we may choose carbon fiber trunks and hoods. Some of these products could give our cars plenty of style. However, we should know that both parts can be quite expensive, at about $500 each. Performance intake manifold could be used to increase the volume of air that flows to our engine. Our car move faster, because more air can be fed into the engine with less restriction.
We may also consider using intercooler, especially if we have turbocharger. It helps to cool down the compressed air. As air molecules are compressed, they could get hotter, especially when they enter into cylinders inside the engines. We should know that the explosion inside the cylinder could become larger, as we stuff extra in air. It also means that more energy will be delivered to the crank and this translates into faster speed. Turbocharger is one of the most expensive ways to speed up our car. By using the exhaust’s run off, the PSI value of the air that goes into the cylinder may increase. As the PSI value gets bigger, the combustion process could be bigger. It means that our car can move faster.
