Engine modifications

TorqueCars take a look at the power plant of a car, the engine and examine the wide range of engine tuning options availble.

Not all engine mods are effective and some need other modifications to work well. We outline each modification option and go into the benefits and weigh up the pros and cons of each.

Converting a DMF to solid flywheel

We look at the benefits and disadvantages of solid flywheel conversions from a DMF and help you decide which is right for you.

It is our considered opinion that unless a car is used extensively for competition or off road you should stick with a DMF. The additional torque caused by tuning an engine or heavy competition use can quickly destroy a DMF. The solution would be to fit a stronger, higher performance DMF but the aftermarket industry seems geared up to offer solid ones as the upgrade option.

What is stage 1, 2 and 3 tuning

We look at the differences between a stage 1,2 and stage 3 tuning mod and explain what these tuning stages actually mean. The terms are a useful guide to suitability and power gains. There is no consistent differences in part makers between their classifications of stage 1 2 and 3 modifications.

You will also need to bear in mind that some tuning companies will just box their parts in packs labeled stage 1,2 and 3 and maybe even 4 or 5. Such labeling is as helpful as a product number or to compare within a range.
