It is well known that most stock engines that are naturally aspirated can only achieve a peak volumetric efficiency of 75-85 percent. Multiple valves per cylinder and variable valve timing improve breathing efficiency in the late model engines. Building a small and big block engine limits one to two valves per cylinder and such engines have fixed valve timings. Supercharging an engine typically also provides more throttle response in an engine increasing its horsepower making its performance highly impressive.
Good horsepower adders have attractive hardware features such as a chipset solution mainly TRF6903RF. A transceiver and a DBB03 digital baseband with ASIC firmware in a ROM based program memory will also facilitate for an effective engine that has added horsepower. Transceivers also support point to point and broadcast networks that transmit enough air and pressure inside the engine. An engine should have a modular firmware that caters for easy customization to suit the vehicle’s engine .A simple hardware UART interface microcontroller also caters for excellent engine performance in an automatic vehicle as it provides reliable data transfer.
Synthetic lubricants are quick horsepower adders hence switching to synthetic lubricants enables the engine to run smoothly because they are amazing friction reducers. They reduce friction which prevents the engine from wearing out. This enables the engine to live longer and run better. They also offer cold weather performance. Synthetic lubricants enable an engine to survive low temperatures and run smoothly without freezing out. Supercharge kits are also good horsepower adders.
They offer the engine with a boost of 150-200. These kits charge the engine constantly increasing its horsepower which results in the exemplary running of the engine. A forced induction system is a quick horsepower adder. The method of induction sparks up the engine making it run easily. Standard roots blower also facilitate for the adding of an engine’s horsepower. Examples include: Helix root blower, Bullet-cased roots blower. A standard roots blower pushes air into the cylinder balancing the pressure in the vehicle’s engine.
Installing a higher lift and longer duration camshaft also adds horsepower to an engine quickly. This increases the engine’s endurance making it run efficiently under different conditions. Modifying and replacing stock heads with after market performance heads that have larger valves and better ports make the engine horsepower increase rapidly. A larger throttle body or carburettor can also be installed to provide better flow of more CFM. The exhaust can also be improved by scavenging it with headers and cross-over pipes to facilitate for better air flow in the engine
