Are you trying to figure out how to make your car faster? Read this article to learn more about the top performance parts for your car.
The need for speed afflicts a select few among us. Those of us who just love the adrenaline rush of an acceleration capability that kicks us back in our seats, and of watching the speedometer climb, just can’t get away from our need for speed.
If you have this condition and thus want to make your car go faster, you’re in the right place. In this article, we’ll teach you how to make your car faster by leveraging aftermarket modifications.
1. Performance Tires
One of the most important considerations when upgrading your car is your tires. Think about it. At the end of the day, the tires that put rubber down on the road are the only things that actually connect your car to the ground.
So if you want to be moving at warp speed, you need to make sure that your tires can handle it. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself throwing money at developing the engine while the tires can’t put down the power on the road well enough for you to actually see those enhancements come to life.
2. Aftermarket Fuel Pump
The next thing to consider is a performance fuel pump. Due to emissions regulations, your current fuel pump may be optimized for lower fuel consumption and emissions.
If you want to unlock more potential, then you should choose to use an aftermarket fuel pump that will be able to change the fuel/air mixture in your piston cylinders in order to produce more power through the engine.
3. Long Tube Headers
Your headers are another part that could be replaced to make your car faster. The headers are the tubes that transmit exhaust gases away from the engine and into your exhaust system. Long tube headers open up and change the pressures in the pipe. This allows freer exhaust flow through the engine, which in turn results in added power gains.
4. Cold Air Intake
Remember that cold air is denser than hot air. Thus, when you push cold air into your engine, that means that per unit volume there is now more air in your engine than if you used hot air.
This will result in your fuel burning more cleanly (increasing both fuel consumption as well as power output). A cold air intake routes the air coming into your engine away from the hotter components of your engine bay. This allows more air to enter your engine.
5. Turbocharger Kit
A turbocharger kit also accomplishes the same thing as a cold air intake (putting more air in your engine) but in a different way. It uses a belt driven by the flow of exhaust gases to compress and push more air into your engine. If you want significant power gains, then a turbocharger kit is a must-have.
Now that you know how to make your car faster with better parts, all that remains is for you to decide which of these modifications you will be performing first. Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to check out the rest of the blog posts for more auto advice.
