What is car tuning?

Cars are an essential part of everyday life, as well as something in which we invest a lot of time and money. Beneath their shiny exteriors there are hundreds of individual bits and pieces that get your car rolling along the road. Over time and through regular, everyday use, one or more of these pieces can get worn out. So intricate is the relationship between the various parts of a moving vehicle that even the tiniest part moving at reduced efficiency can have a major impact on the rest of the car’s performance.

Car tuning, then, is making sure that all the parts – or, at the very least, all the major parts of a car’s internal workings are operating at maximum efficiency.

What does car tuning involve?

There are various components to a successful car tuning. There are things like engine remapping and ECU remapping, which are covered on different pages on this site. They change the way that your car’s onboard computer makes use of the engine, increasing activity in certain areas to achieve greater efficiency.

Then there are the physical and mechanical aspects of car tuning. For all the improvement you can get from remapping your engine, there are certain tricks that are considerably more old-school, but no less effective. These ensure that crucial elements of the car like the fuel injectors, the carburettor, the fan belt, and so on, are all in good physical condition. All the remapping in the world won’t help if the engine itself is on its last legs.

Does my vehicle need car tuning?

It’s hard to tell, without taking a look under the bonnet. Certainly, if you feel that it has lost some of its performance and you’re not sure why, then a car tuning could help.
