4. BLOW IT
Engines give power by compressing and igniting the fuel/air mix inside the cylinders, and the more that’s in there, the more power you will get. Well, the best way to get more in there is to force it in under pressure with a bloody great fan!
Turbo and supercharger conversions are never cheap, but if you want the maximum amount of power possible from your engine, it’s really the only way to go.
On a normally aspirated engine even 100bhp per litre is considered highly tuned, and 150bhp per litre is usually reserved for mega-budget race engines. But in turbo engines, 100bhp per litre is considered ordinary, and upwards of 250bhp per litre is possible from the majority of engines.
Turbo/supercharger conversion: £1000-£10,000+
This is hard to imagine unless you’ve experienced it, so you will have to take our word for it, but lowering the gearing of your car (either with a close-ratio gearbox or low-ratio diffs) will drastically improve your car’s acceleration, in exchange for a lower top speed.
Often this can be achieved by swapping your gearbox or diffs with a unit from a different model from the same company, but if there are none available there are many aftermarket transmission specialists than will be happy to help you out.
Prime examples of how low gearing massively helps acceleration are Renault 5 GT Turbos, modern WRC cars, and the famous MINE’s R34 Skyline GTR demo car.
Changing gearbox or diff ratios: £250-£6,000+
