For most cars the usual smell would be the scent of leather or of the materials used. This usually goes for those newly purchased cars. On the other hand, there are also distinct smells that emanate from your car as it goes through time and use. However, as the owner or driver, you would know that these are the usual odors and that would not be something to get alarmed about.
Typically, air fuel ratios can be leaned slightly for a small increase in power on engines equipped with forged pistons, due to their strength and greater heat resistance when compared to OE cast pistons.
Where a manifold usually has several holes converging into a common chamber to route all your gases, a header has precisely formed tubes that curve gently to join your exhaust ports to your exhaust pipe.
An automatic transmission is rarely repaired these days because of the labor and time involved with the job. Instead catalytic converter recycling they’re replaced. Unfortunately, replacing the transmission is expensive.
ADDITIVES – Also sadly, we are told by ‘authorities’ that some of the many gasoline additives are in the mix to increase performance; but because of its current overly-complex molecular structure, the real built-in function of the gasoline formula is to slow down the combustion so that only so much is actually consumed in the cylinder, and the liquid balance goes to the catalytic converter. As a further insult, the additives are also there to clog and prevent the use of the Pogue-style carburetors, designed to get 200-300 mpg.
Now follow the factory exhaust up towards the catalytic converter recycling. You will now need to remove the mid exhaust mounting bracket from the chassis as well using a socket. Make sure you slip the exhaust hangers out of the rubber mounting brushings. Set this piece aside with your head shield as you will be reusing it also.
You can put all those fuel injection cleaners and gas additives back on the shelf. When you run HHO through your engine you dissolve carbon buildup and clean out your engine. Not too bad for the price of water! Your engine will immediately run smoother and cooler, this alone will add longevity to it’s life. The more complete combustion removes the unused gas that would have normally gone through your catalytic converter. The byproduct of the HHO combustion is water vapor. Your emissions will be much cleaner and environmentally friendly.
I hope you’ve learned some of the basics of how you can upgrade your VW to get better performance out of it. Just remember to do your research before making a purchase, as there are a lot of products out there attempting to scam people like us.
