Basic Engine Mechanism

The first step tuning is to understand how engines work

Cars will not become fast by simply throwing parts at it. It is important to understand your own requirements and then tune to suit. This can also be applied to increasing engine power also. There are many routes to obtaining more power but depending on whether you want big peak power or want low engine speed torque for comfortable street driving, the choice of parts will change along with the order in which each process must be completed. In order to efficiently know what course to follow, it is important to understand how an engine and its components work.
