If you want to tune your car and are looking for a way to achieve higher speeds, you will do an engine tuning with Chiptuning, newer Exhaust System or possibly even a conversion Turbo/Compressor consider. But there are a few things to consider. If one increases the engine power and leads in the course, which may even increase the engine speed, the auxiliary units are also in the form of water pump, Fan, air conditioning compressor and even the power steering may be more stressed. And as is well known, these auxiliary units are driven by the V-belt, which serves as a drive belt. So it can Tuning from the V-belt can also be considered. The V-belt tuning is explained in more detail below.
V-belts - energy carriers and more
The V-belt connects the V-belt pulleys to each other and transmits the power of the engine to the above-mentioned ancillaries. This also includes alternator or for example the hydraulic pump. The V-belt uses the power of the crankshaft and transmits its rotational movement and torque to the units via the pulleys. Replacing, or rather, “upgrading” a V-belt does not mean that the car will be faster, but the way it works can be guaranteed to be much more reliable and longer.
V-belts - which variants are differentiated?
The V-belt is available in various material variants. A distinction is made between standard V-belts and reinforced variants. And that's what it's all about when you have the V-belt modify would like to. You want to build in a "better" variant. The reinforced V-belts can be reinforced with fibers made of aramid or kevlar. Glass fiber reinforced variants are also available in stores. Which material is the right one depends on the area of application, the vehicle and also the engine power. An improved V-belt must definitely be matched to the drive system. If you are looking for long-lasting, stable V-belts, you are right with variants that are reinforced with aramid fiber or kevlar fiber. In addition, the reinforced straps are highly resilient, often offer significantly more grip and are stable even at extremely low or high temperatures.
V-belt tuning - what to look for?
When buying a better V-belt, you should make sure that the item is of high quality. Furthermore, a V-belt alone does not necessarily have the desired effect. Often, new shims are required to represent an effective tuning measure. Therefore, not only V-belts for tuning are available on the market, but also the matching shims, which can only provide better power transmission in combination with the V-belt. To order the matching shims, an experienced tuner should be consulted. After all, the translation is essential for the survival of all ancillary units connected to it. The experts can also help you choose the right V-belt. The shims are too thick, for example, if you can hear grinding noises that were not present before installation. This is not always recognized as a layman when installing. Before an inexperienced hobbyist carries out tuning on the V-belt, specialists should act as advisors or carry out the necessary work directly.
V-belt tuning - conclusion
The V-belt is used to transfer the engine power and is available in standard and reinforced versions. An experienced tuning workshop should do the installation for the tuning. We hope that the info report on the topic / term fan belt (further names / keywords: shims, timing belts, narrow V-belts, V-ribbed belts, flat toothed belts, shims, spacers, pulley, V-belt pulley) from the field of autotuning.
