There are quick modification tasks that we can do get the most of our diesel cars. Diesel tuning tasks should be simple, quick and cheap to do. As an example, we could use external tuning box or tuning chip the more from our engine. Diesel cars are known for their various performance variants. They can be designed to work on multiple fuel qualities. With internal chip remapping or diesel tuning box, we should be able to dynamically adjust engine parameters. It means that we should get much better performance at different rev ranges. As an added bonus, we will be able to use less fuel for the same driving style and commuting range, unless we are quite heavy on the right foot.
It is usually a matter of preference when we choose between diesel remapping and external tuning box. The costs are usually quite similar between $500 and $700. For more knowledgeable car users, they can install diesel tuning box at home. However, engine remapping will require specialized tools, requiring a visit to mobile workshop. We should be aware that some older or cheaper tuning systems work only by fooling the engine into thinking that it is colder and producing more smoke. Modern tuning options directly improve the configurations of the engine, depending existing requirements. For some cars, this can mean the single most important upgrades and we could actually obtain up to 35 percent of the promised power, depending on the make and model of the car.
Replacement air filter should help to improve the air flow and we would get added power. Current diesel engines should allow for the improved air flow and we may get a boost of with a handful of additional air flow. It is a good idea to replace current air filter with a new one to help improve the airflow. If the filter become clogged, it is likely that our engine will start to stall. Tires could also help to boost the performance, especially during straight line acceleration on the highway. For better grips, we should consider using sports tires, but they have lower lifespan than regular tires. However, we will have improved braking and cornering. We may also improve handling by choosing tires with lower profile, to prevent tires distort too much during sharp cornering.
Body upgrades could actually able to improve the performance of our car, especially we are able to improve the overall aerodynamic properties. We should be aware that body kits, wings and other add-ons only have decorative purposes and have almost no effects on handling. We should consider the aerodynamic values of our car and try to improve it. As an example, we may replace the stock side mirrors with smaller and more aerodynamic models.
