  • Progressive boost controllers vs standard ones.

    A boost controller will increase the amount of power you get from your turbo. The boost controller will alter the exhaust gases flow into the turbo allowing the turbo to spin at a faster rate. Standard boost control in most production cars can only be described as crude. In order to keep costs down many manufacturers […]

    ECU remaps

    The ECU or Computer is what controls every aspect and function of your car. Most cars built since 1992 and indeed many before that had a computer to monitor and manage the engine. Now with the addition of catalysts and fuel economy requirements the computer has evolved into a complex system.

    Hybrid Turbos

    One great way to easily uprate and improve a turbocharged engine is with the aid of a hybrid turbo. You'd basically take a standard turbo housing and uprate the internals giving yourself a bolt in replacement. Sometimes it is quite hard to fit a larger turbo to an engine, the most notable reason being the […]

    Big Turbo Conversions

    A turbo charger has a finite capacity to force air into the engine. The basic principle that more air equals more power holds true (as long as there is a sufficient supply of fuel to match this). Hybrid turbos are one way to increase the capacity of your turbo, with different impellers the characteristics can […]

    Water Injection

    In a forced induction engine (turbos, superchargers and twin chargers) and to some extent a NASP engine with a high compression ratio you have the ever present risk of detonation. This is where the fuel prematurely ignites typically causing major engine damage. When adding or increasing the amount of air going into the engine you […]

    Blow Off Valves Or Dump Valves

    In a turbo engine the pressures build up as air is compressed and forced into the engine. The turbo is driven by the exhaust gases so the faster the engine goes the more air you get forced into the engine. This is fine until you lift off the accelerator. You engine speed does not instantly […]

    Turbo Engine Tuning

    When deciding on a power train which should you go for? I will admit to being a little biased towards turbos. Here is my take on Turbo Engines. The sheer exhileration and excitement you get as the turbo kicks in is something that sticks with you for a long time.

    Performance Intercoolers

    We all know that cold Air carries more oxygen that warmer air. You may have noticed that when air is compressed it gets warmer. If you feel the connecting hose on the footpump as you put air into the tire you would notice that a substantial amount of heat can be generated. In a forced […]

    Remote Turbo Kits

    It can be quite time consuming to add a turbo charger to a NASP engine. The biggest problems include avoiding detonation, making space to join the turbo to the exhaust and sorting out the fueling and mapping. Although still a big job the remote turbo is being hailed as the simple bolt on solution for […]
