8. GAS IT!
Once you’ve fitted an exhaust and filter, tuning gets more expensive, especially on N/A engines. One exception to this is nitrous, which can give huge gains for the money you have spent.
Nitrous is an oxygen-rich compressed gas, which, when injected into the engine with the corresponding amount of extra fuel, gives an immediate boost in power.
Most standard production cars can happily withstand a 50bhp increase in power via nitrous with no ill-effects, and that’s enough to make any car a load faster. Remember the gas doesn’t last long, so you’ll need to pay for re-fills – approx £55 for an 11lb bottle.
Good Branded Nitrous kit: £500-£800
7. STRIP IT OUT
You’ve probably noticed the difference in performance of your car when you’re on your own in it and when it’s fully loaded, especially in small cars.
Well, apart from not giving fat birds lifts, another good plan for more performance is to strip the car out. Things such as seats, interior trim, ICE, sound deadening, the spare wheel and air conditioning systems all weigh a hell of a lot. With them removed you’ll not only have faster acceleration, but also better braking and handling, too.
However, the best thing about it is that it costs bugger all! Once you want to spend some money you can replace your standard seats with lightweight fibreglass or carbon fibre buckets, glass windows with Perspex, and steel panels with fibreglass or carbon ones.
Stripping interior: Nothing!
Fitting lightweight panels, seats,
windows, etc: £150-£1,000+
