Performance Transmission modifications

Low ratio gearboxes,slip differentials and performance gearboxes

Getting the power from the engine to the wheels is the job of the transmission and this is an area where a lot of cars can lose power.

We look at the best Transmission mods from low ratio gearboxes, quick shift kits and slip differentials.

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.

Flywheel lightening & performance gains from lighter flywheels

Lightening the flywheel – the flywheel works in a similar way to the wheel in the toy cars you used to rev up and release and let it zoom off. The heavy wheel located between the engine and the gearbox builds up rotational force with speed and momentum.

Effectively storing the energy and helping the car resist changes in engine speed – good for cruising at a steady speed but bad when you need a fast engine response.

Badgers 2.0 Vectra Turbo engine swap project.

Meet Torquecars member BAD63R or Badger, his name is really Andy but he’s been called Badger ever since he can remember (due to his surname) and lives in sunny England.

He currently owns a Calibra and a Vectra and has the habit of swapping engines in his cars. We knew that when he said he had got a Vectra and had no plans to modify it it would only be a matter of time before he started with the mods, but we were certainly not expecting a turbo engine transplant!
