No matter how cheap or expensive our cars are, we treat them like our babies and make sure that they have all that they need. This is why you should upgrade them regularly!
1. Electric Fans
Just like a computer, cars have fans that work over time to make sure that you car does not come to a screeching halt every time the engine heats up. Most cars come equipped with mechanical fans and while they get the job done, they also take a lot of out of the car.
2. Electric Fuel Pump
Similar to the mechanical fan, the regular pumps steal that power which should work towards moving the wheels faster. This is why you should go out and buy its electric counterpart and keep your car in sparkling condition till you decide to buy a new one!
3. Air Induction
We all know how horsepower is created- the air that is sucked in by the car’s engine travels till the fuel and creates the mixture. Naturally, if this amount can be enhanced, the horsepower will subsequently increase as well. Air Induction units do just that and the best part is that they tap into the fuel economy as well.
If the air induction unit des not appeal to you, you can always increase the capacity of your carburetor and add to the existing horsepower. This means that if you have a 4 barrel capacity, you should add to it and make it 6 barrel. Fortunately, many companies out there create state of the art carburetors because they understand that a small change could make all the difference.
5. Fuel Injection
Upgrading a carburetor will do the trick as well and this is possible if you transform it into a fuel injection. This performance car upgrade will increase the horsepower that your car runs on and keep the readings precise.
6. Performance Chips
Performance chips are easy to install and their applications are flexible, as long as you buy the right one. That being said, these are available in two categories- while some are programmed, others come along with modifiers. The horsepower will increase, your car will run faster and have greater mileage.
7. Exhaust System
We all know that every vehicle creates a lot of smoke and if that is not removed, it can enter the engine and meddle with its overall performance. Adding extra air to the engine is important but so is getting rid of it. However, every country has different laws as far as this performance upgrade is concerned so be very careful.
Turbochargers fit into gasoline engines and this is done mainly to increase the speed of the vehicle. The extra gas is tapped into and used to move the impellor and the result is that it transforms itself into fresh air. Even though this is slightly more expensive than the other upgrades, it is worth it.
9. Nitrous Oxide
The reason for inserting Nitrous Oxide into the engine is straightforward- it will attack the fuel, send it into a frenzy and therefore, enhance the horsepower. This upgrade is available for every model and every car in the market. The method that you want to use largely depends on you.
Superchargers are attached to the vehicle and serve as an air compressor for forced induction of an internal combustion engine. The greater mass flow-rate provides more oxygen to support combustion than would be available in a naturally-aspirated engine, which allows more fuel to be provided and more work to be done per cycle, increasing the power output of the engine.
