Many auto enthusiasts love to modify their cars, whether to achieve a certain aesthetic or improve their fuel efficiency. If you want your engine to rumble like a rally car’s, you’re in luck. There are plenty of options at your disposal! Check out these tips for improving your engine’s performance, courtesy of Dirty Racing Products.
Install a supercharger in your engine to force more air into the intake. More air moving through the engine means more fuel combustion, which translates to greater rumbling power for you. A supercharger spins faster than the engine itself at 50,000 revolutions per minute.
Turbochargers work similarly to superchargers, but a turbine within the exhaust stream that uses excess exhaust gases powers them. Meanwhile, the engine directly powers superchargers.
Install a Cold Air Intake
Most cars’ air intake systems draw warm air into the engine for fuel combustion. It’s a fine system but not perfect.
The higher density of cold air makes for more powerful fuel combustion and better engine performance overall. A cold air intake system is an easy way to increase your horsepower!
Delete the TGV
A car’s tumble generator valve (TGV) restricts airflow and reduces vehicle emissions at lower speeds. Many folks use delete kits to get rid of it and boost their horsepower.
Got a Subaru WRX rally car? Invest in a WRX TGV delete to increase airflow and get your engine rumbling perfectly.
Put in a Performance Chip
If you have a late-model car, it almost definitely has an internal computer regulating its various functions. However, not everyone wants to use the factory presets! Installing a performance chip is a great way to “hack” your car’s computer system and tinker with those settings to increase engine power.
