Cryogenic Engine Treatments – Make Your Car Engine Stronger

It was a case of serendipity when cryogenic treatments were discovered which help in making a car engine stronger. The observation was that few pieces of metal is exposed to extremely cold temperatures of space and then suddenly to very high temperatures of re-entry point were stronger than the others.

Further it was observed that slow changes in the exposed temperatures to the metal piece were even more effective than the rapid changes in temperature and thus the cryogenic engine treatment procedure arrived on the scene.

The engine of a car is sprayed with liquid nitrogen, which drops its temperature to nearly zero for quite a long time; all this is done in a controlled environment. After this, the temperature of the engine is raised to 150°C and kept around it for more than 10 hours. The whole process is repeated several times over for better and effective results. An engine having undergone the cryogenic engine treatment becomes much harder, resistant and smooth in its finish so that the car tuner is at an advantage when going for modification.

Remember the complete engine cannot undergo the whole process at once so it has to be dismantled and individual parts need to go under the cryogenic treatment. The metal resulting from this treatment has a much harder tensile strength and shear stress thus withstanding higher heat and force. Friction that results in power loss as well as internal stress for the engine is also highly reduced after the molecular level smoothing through cryogenic treatment.

Street Racing Cars – How to Have Your Own Street Racing Car

A car modified by its owner to attain the maximum possible speed is called a Street Racing car. It is fast becoming illegal to own a street-racing car as street racers have caused hundreds of fatal accidents where many have lost their lives too. So, the government in many states is formulating laws to put a ban on street racing. The laws of road safety and speed limits are all on stake with street racing around so the authorities are becoming strict. Street Racing began around in 1930s but it became popular only after the World War II and has remained so till now.

The normal cars are modified in a manner so that the air and fuel mixture is maximized inside the engine for a highly optimized performance. Many street racing cars come equipped with lights as well as nitro booster systems that supply another 20-70 horsepower on the road so that the driver can decide how much boost do they want.

Car Balloon – How to Make a Balloon Car – Making Car Balloons

Earlier you could see car balloons only in the cars of the newlyweds but these you don’t need a ceremony as grand as a marriage to come across a car balloon. These are considered as one of the most fun filled add-ons for any car. Although they cannot be misused but still some juvenile delinquents think of it as some fun item and try their hands on it.

It is very simple to make a car balloon. Just to start if you are looking to prank someone or do some mischief then there are a lot of options available in the balloon market that can make your car balloon. Car balloons shaped as missiles are among the most popular ones. Once you found the car balloon that you were looking for then it is very easy for you to set up. Fill helium gas in the balloon completely so that it stands high in the air when it is attached with a tight string to the car. This is all you really need to do make some car balloon and your car is ready to turn some heads around.

The car balloons that come in the shape of missiles are highly popular as it seems as if some missiles are following your car. If the people around are not able to catch the strings attached to the balloons then they might easily fall for the trick cooked up by car balloons. Some people had also come with the idea of a UFO shaped car balloon, which could really be a big innovation. You can only imagine the stunned look on the faces of the people around on the road watching a mysterious flying object following you car very closely. This all depends only on your choice of car balloons.

Why is Aerodynamics important in Car Tuning? Guide to Aerodynamics

Today in the automobile engineering, the concept of car’s aerodynamics has become an integral part to work and improve it further so that the efficiency of the car gets even better. Aerodynamics is indeed very important for the overall performance of a car and its handling on the road. Enthusiasts have burnt their midnight oil to improve the exteriors of the cars with their innovative ideas and engineering skills. The car tuning specialists and hobbyists lay special importance on the aerodynamics of the car when you will go for a modification. Many sports car racers go for aerodynamics tuning just not to get their personalized look for their machine but also to improve its overall performance.

Highly sophisticated yet improved aerodynamics of a car helps it get more grip on the road while traversing at very high velocity. It reduces its overall energy consumption even when cornering thus making it more fuel-efficient. This is all achieved by the use of non-air resistive body and a lightweight casing on the car. We hear a lot about fatal accidents of highly speeding cars, one reason behind this is that these cars are not aerodynamically aligned. At very high speeds the cars that are poorly aligned aerodynamically tend to lose traction on the wheels thus making it difficult for the driver to control the car. Secondly, a lot of power needs to be generated to keep the car at the same speed as the thrust of the head on wind makes it slow.

What is Induction Kit? Clean the Air Passing into the Engine

An Induction kit is used to clean the air passing into the engine of a turbo charged car. It protects the engine from the floating dust and debris that might get a way into the engine and choke it. It is just a filter for the engine. If there is no induction kit then a compressor is attached to the stock air box to maintain a restricted airflow into the engine of a turbocharged car. The best induction kit must be able to filter all the dust and debris particles that might get into the engine as well as it should maintain a proper airflow rate. This is a major problem with all the kits as both the properties are not achieved simultaneously.

The main intention to install an induction kit when getting your car modified is to increase its power but then you have to carefully integrate the induction kit design with the internal piping system of the car. If all this is achieved nicely and perfectly then the power of your car will get a boost and the car will respond faster on the road. But if this is not done properly it will also lead to serious disastrous results like poor driving experience, higher rate of intake heat to complete engine damage.
