You donít have to plan on racing at Indy
to get the desire to upgrade the performance
of your automobile. The addition of a few
aftermarket performance auto parts can make
a significant improvement in gas mileage,
power and acceleration, ride, looks and resale
Performance products are generally
by the aspects of the car you
want to improve:
- Air filter intakes and performance exhaust
- Springs, shocks and suspension, tires, wheels
- Electronics and gauges
- Clutch/brake upgrades
- Cams and gears
- Engine electrical (spark plugs and wires)
- Body (exterior, interior, lights)
By upgrading a few parts of your street car,
you can transform it into a street racer
that turns heads when you drive down the
Performance upgrade strategies
You might try one of these strategies
- replace factory parts with performance parts
when the originals break or fail.
- focus on upgrading a system at a time. For
example, if you want to tweak the engine
performance, try installing new spark wiring
and plugs, complete with analog or digital
meters to monitor performance
- focus on a single result. For example, if
you are trying to improve gas mileage and
increase horsepower, something as simple
as a performance air intake system can give
you the performance you want.
- a strategy used by auto enthusiasts is to
find a solid body used car
and give it a
complete makeover, perhaps
for fun or show.
Starting with the basic car
factory components for performance
can give new life to a popular
car that was
on the way out.
Keep in mind that not all performance
are "street legal"
in all 50 states.
Check with the DMV and the seller
committing to a major change
to your auto.
