The market is filled with numerous products claiming to add performance and power to your ride – how does one choose the best upgrades for their application? Many factors come into play, such as funds available, the time required for install, the desired goals, etc. However, many owners overlook some of the most important factors involved in engine and performance tuning: the quality of the performance parts, and their origin.
Some common upgrades available today include: cold intakes, exhaust mods, high temp spark plugs, upgraded hoses and wires, throttle accelerators, obd tuning devices and aftermarket supercharger kits among many others. While some of these may improve performance, many are unnecessary or can even cause harm to your vehicle. Others work for a short period, then cause unpredictable results down the road. Customers have provided us with some of these inferior products for examination, some of which only worked for a few minutes! The next time a performance product’s claims and cost seem too good to be true, that may indeed be the sad truth!
Here are some good questions to consider before purchasing any performance product:
How do they stack up when they are no longer under warranty? How long is the lifespan? Do they require other vehicle modifications to be used? Will they conflict with existing mods or addons? Can you get in touch with the manufacturer should you require assistance? Where is the product made and what is the quality?
