Are you looking to squeeze every last bit of muscle out of your vehicle’s
engine and have it roar like a lion out on the roads? Want to bring out
your car’s inner hot rod and increase its horsepower, performance,
and speed? If so, there are several different modifications you can make
to your vehicle to boost its raw power and keep it running at its peak.
Adding or replacing the following components can maximize your car’s
Cold air intake: Upgrading to a performance cold air intake is one of the simplest and least
expensive ways to increase your horsepower. Cold air intakes have an innovatively
shaped filter which offers increased surface area to pull air through
and add denser air into your engine, creating more power when mixed with
fuel and combusting. Likewise, cold air intakes can also reduce air resistance
and unwanted turbulence within your pipes which could ordinarily restrict
air flow to your engine and reduce its power.
Large diameter throttle body: Your throttle body works in conjunction with your fuel injection system
to regulate air flow into your engine. Installing a large-diameter throttle
body with larger flaps will allow more air to flow into your engine, allowing
you to feel faster acceleration.
Exhaust headers: Since stock exhaust manifolds are tasked with both meeting emissions standards
and keeping production costs low, they often come at the cost of reducing
your car’s ability to efficiently move air. Using long tube and
shorty headers can help move air more quickly and build torque.
High-flow catalytic converters: High-flow catalytic converters fulfill the same function of reducing your
vehicle’s emissions, only they do so much faster. This is accomplished
via a less dense internal cell count and an increased volume around the
catalyst, increasing flow capacity.
Forced induction systems: Turbochargers and superchargers work to compress the air flowing into your system and
can offer up to 50% greater performance. Since these systems add more
air, your engine will thereby also mix more fuel, improving power and
