Vehicle customization is not an uncommon thing for experts in AFE because there are car owners who are looking for more when it comes to their vehicles. They might want to add a more improved version of a part or they might want to remove the limitations set based on the components of the ride. All of these are done of course with the assurance that the vehicle will be able to handle the new part just fine. One of the most common desires among car owners is to have a more powerful engine. This can be accomplished without changing the engine itself.
One way is to replace the exhaust of the vehicle in order to improve the way the car breathes. This should be done first before any further modifications are done on the vehicle. The increase in power might not be that noticeable but a slight increase is possible if the replacement is using one of the latest exhaust systems that come with supercharger, turbo-back and header-back. Aside from increasing the power, the decibel level of the car exhaust will also be game changing.
One of the major components of upgrading a vehicle, aside from the exhaust, is the air filter. It can improve the cleanliness level of the air that is being taken in by the vehicle. If the filter is changed to a high performance one, the replacement can be done easily because there is no need to handle bolts or complicated processes. The small boost is enough to lift the power of the car even just a small bit.
If possible with the particular model of vehicle you have, it is recommended to re-gear the transmission. This is to allocate properly the vehicle’s power instead of just forcing it to give more. Lastly, one of the recommendations from the AFE is to replace the cold air intake system. This is very important with vehicles that are running on forced induction because the system makes sure that the highest amount of cold air is being directed to the induction system. When the car has enough cold air, the amount of power is also increased.
