Engines

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced car mechanic you will know that the engine of a car is the most important part of the car. However, unless you are an experienced car mechanic you may find the terminology that surrounds the engine confusing. There are many things that can affect your car's performance and there are many things that you can do to improve your car's performance.

Precision ignition operation will increase engine power. If your car is misfiring it will result in a loss of power, increased tailpipe emissions and wasted fuel. A good spark from a high-energy ignition system will make a lot of difference to the power you can get from your engine. However, you need to be careful about playing around with ignition timing as it can damage your engine if set too high.

Another way of improving engine performance is to use a larger and high performance throttle body. Depending on what type of engine you have you can gain 10-20 horsepower with comparable torque. As with ignition timing too large a throttle can lead to a loss of power, as not every engine is suited to a larger throttle body.

Increasing compression is another productive way of increasing horsepower. Increase compression and you will increase power as well. Compression and cam selection go together as cam selection affects cylinder pressure. Something that you might not think about is fuel line sizing. If you want to have a high performance engine then it requires plenty of fuel to perform. If you want higher horsepower then you need to increase your fuel line size.

Improving engine performance requires an understanding of how the engine works and the many factors that can affect its performance.
