The money you spend to purchase your car only represents a portion of the cash outlay necessary to keep your vehicle running properly. You’ll also need to allocate part of your budget to periodic repairs and replacement parts. Both are inevitable.
The fuel system pumps petrol from the tank to the engine. Older cars used to have carburetors that mix fuel with air and send the gas to the engine. Some cars have a special fuel injection system that sprays petrol into the engine. Modern cars have turbo chargers that suck in extra air and therefore create more power.
It varies from car-to-car, and the conditions as well as tuning. Most BPU(TM)-only Supra Twin Turbos, dyno between 370 and 410 horsepower at the rear wheels. This is usually achieved with moderate temperatures, a reset ECU (to erase anything bad the ECU may have learned), and often a little bit of high-octane un-leaded race fuel. On the street, power will be reduced, especially in poor weather, but at least 90 percent of the power should be retained.
Low profile tyres – The ‘low’ part is determined by the height of the wall of your tyres. Lower profile tyres usually deliver a harder ride – there’s less air to swallow the bumps. Not so low profile tyres have more air (between you and the road) and deliver a softer ride. Low profile tyres look nice – slick, sporty, cool…
The exhaust systems present in most vehicles at the time of purchase are of a low quality. Hence, it becomes necessary to get the exhaust upgraded with a new one, as a proficient system will burn less fuel, thereby saving energy. Replacing the system with an upgraded one is not a difficult task and anyone with minimal knowledge of technicality can replace it quickly. All you would need is a screwdriver, jack, safety glasses, and gloves to begin the upgrading process.
EFFICIENCY – There is a lot of thermochemical energy in gasoline, but there is even more energy in water. The DOE has quoted about 40%, 50 it is probably much more than that. Most people are unaware that ‘internal combustion’ is DEFINED as: a thermo-vapor process; as in ‘no liquid in the reaction’; AND most of the gasoline in a standard internal combustion engine, is ACTUALLY CONSUMED cooked and finally broken down) IN THE catalytic converter recycling, which happens AFTER the fuel has been not-so-burnt in the engine. Sadly, this means that most of the fuel we use in this way, is used only to cool down the combustion process, rather than using a cleaner and more efficient means to do so.
Depending upon the type of hangers you have on your car, place the brand-new hangers onto the exhaust pieces first; this is normally a less complicated method to put the pieces back on.
Of course, one way to mitigate all this chaos is to change your oil. and change it often. If you use standard grade oil, then 3500 miles is a good interval. 5000 for semi-synthetic is good, and 7500 for full synthetic.
