Of course you can also upgrade a car’s engine to produce more power and to use fuel more efficiently. Bolt-on parts like high-flow air intakes and performance exhausts can make a difference in performance. The biggest way to affect the engine’s power output is to swap out parts like the pistons, connecting rods, valves, camshafts, fuel injectors, etc so the engine can increase its displacement and produce even more power. Turbochargers and superchargers also provide more power stronger acceleration, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Installing a higher-performance clutch and flywheel helps ensure the increased power your engine is producing is properly transferred to the transmission.

One final thing you can do to increase your car’s performance abilities is to either install a performance chip in the ECU or to have the ECU professionally mapped. This process involves changing some or all of the ECU’s settings for the engine’s air-fuel mix and other functions that affect the car’s performance. You can measure the end result of all of your tuning efforts on a dyno, which puts the car’s engine through a series of load tests to analyze how much power it produces, which can help you identify areas of improvement for future performance projects.
