More power from your car engine

car engineThere are several methods for maximizing engine power so a car moves like greased lightning. One of the simplest things car owners can do is switch from the original air filter to a high performance air filter. These filters allow more air to flow to the engione and can increase power and gas milage. Plus this is a simple task to do. Another relatively easy performance enhancement to get more power from the engine is to add a good after-market exhaust system. There are several reputable companies who manufacture these free-flow products for most every auto or pick-up made. Switching to one of these less restrictive exhaust systems will generally increase the engine horsepower by as much as 15 percent when used in conjuntion with the above mention air filter change.

You can also increase engine power with high performance spark plugs. Not only will the plugs give your motor a slight boost in power but also should help with gas milage as well.

For a project a bit more involved but well worth the effort is to add headers to the new free-flow exhaust system. Headers bolt directly to the exhaust ports on the motor, and then the exhaust pipes are bolted to the ends of the headers. You can expect to gain a significant power increase through the four simple modifications mentioned so far.

One area for increasing or maximizing engine power is through the use of the proper oil. Synthetic oils used inconjuction with one of the oil additives that coat the inside of the motor so it creates less friction, can add a few more horsepower to what we have gained with the previous changes.

All five of these engine modificatuions can be done by the average person with basic tools, will result in a more powerful engine, and will not set your budget back to the stone ages.
