Top 3 Performance Enhancements for Your Supercarc
When it comes to car owners, you can encounter two types. First, those who are satisfied with the out-of-the-box performance of their vehicles with stock parts. On the other hand, some drivers want to improve every aspect of their car’s performance.
If you’re the latter, you should be well familiar with car enhancement upgrades and modifications.
The world of aftermarket car mods is a playground for those who are looking to supercharge their car’s performance. When it comes to actual supercars, it’s about adding more horsepower that can actually make a difference.
Here are some of our most favorite supercar enhancements.
1. Forced Induction
Forced Induction is one of our top enhancement choices because it can easily add 200+ horsepower to your car’s performance. By installing a turbocharger or supercharger, you can upgrade your car engine’s output.
- Turbocharger: This modification is basically installing a turbine that will be blown by exhaust gasses. Once the turbine spins, the compressor will cause to blow air at high velocity and pressure to the engine. As a result, the compressed air will find its way to the engine combustion chambers for more power and torque. If you’re looking to have this upgrade, expect to pay around $2,500 to $10,000.
- Supercharger: This enhancement functions similarly to turbochargers but only uses a belt-driven compressor. Generally, supercharger mods provide extra power in the lower RPM range. In comparison, turbochargers are designed to add power and torque as the RPM increases. A supercharger is yet another big buck enhancement ranging from $1,600 to $5,000.
2. Performance Tires
Installing high-performance tires is one of the most critical car modifications for improving overall performance. This upgrade doesn’t necessarily increase raw horsepower but you’ll definitely know once you have it. It’s that obvious!
Without the right set of tires, you can’t even dream to add more horsepower to your vehicle. The right (or wrong) set of tires will directly impact many aspects of the car’s performance such as acceleration, handling, braking, and many others.
Of course, you can’t forget that the tires affect traction.
For shopping high-performance tires, be on the lookout for their speed ratings. The speed rating is the indication of just how much speed the tires can handle. If you go to a reliable auto body shop, they can help you get tires with a suitable speed rating.
3. Cold Air Intake
The previous mods were on the expensive side but now we have one that’s easier on the budget: cold air intakes. Simply put, more air means more power.
The stock air filter can only add so much power to the engine’s output. Thus, we highly recommend that you replace the stock air filter with a high-performance cold air intake. This modification will force denser air at high velocity to the engine.
The added horsepower will be around 5 to 10. It’s relatively small when compared to other mods but cold air intakes are affordable and easy to install.
Taking Your Car’s Performance to the Next Level
These enhancements should help improve the overall performance of your supercar. Before you install these enhancements, it’s important to do your research. Your friendly neighborhood auto body shop can help you choose the best supercar mods.
