Improved car efficiency with performance part upgrades

There are several aftermarket part upgrades that you can use to
improve the way your car drives and handles on the road. Let's
have a look at some of the most common car part upgrades and why
Reusable air filters can be used repeatedly and you do not need
to worry about poor performance wither. High performance air
filters are basically the things that do their job in race cars
- and they will also do it well in your driving machine. As the
airflow towards the engine is improved, you will notice a better
response to the acceleration pedal. Apart from the extra horse
power, performance air filters will also improve your fuel
burning ration and thus your overall fuel economy. More power
and less gas burned - this part is a must have for any serious
Power chips often replace your car's computer chip or enhance it
with a power programmer. These are designed to change the stock
settings and variables your engine runs on and improve horse
power and thrust. The factory limitations can be overridden and
this brings you quite a lot of extra power for a very little
Cold air intakes work well in combination with performance air
filters. They suck in colder air and help the engine work at
maximum efficiency. They allow an increase in horse power and
they also make the engine sound better for sport enthusiasts.
Performance exhausts allow the gases produced by the engine to
get out of the exhaust system faster. This means that the engine
has more room to harness the full power of its components and
yet another boost in acceleration can be achieved. A small
exhaust simply doesn't have the physical room to allow gases to
be eliminated at an appropriate rate, so performance exhausts
come in to make things better. Not only will they help torque
and acceleration, they also help your engine burn les fuel due
to a better-balanced exhaust.
Stock parts are not always the best choice for your vehicle.
Because of today's competitive car market, manufacturers are
forced to lower their prices in order to stay on top, and this
often leads to cuts in the quality of some stock car parts.
Aftermarket performance parts are designed so that your power
and torque are allowed to develop at a proper level while your
fuel emissions are kept well below the maximum allowable limit.
