This article is about buying a tuned car, what you should pay attention to, what you can do wrong and how to get to his perfect tuning unique. First of all, we should clarify on which vehicles, or which autotuning I refer here. These are not simple changes, such as an open air filter, which can be easily undone at any time and where it can be assumed that they have been mounted correctly and no damage to the car. I'm talking about more car tuning, such as a new exhaust system, chip tuning or engine tuning in general or tuning suspension.
So what do you have to pay attention to when buying?
First you should look at all changes and assess whether they have been professionally installed. The seller can also help with this. Does he still have the bill for the installation of the new intake manifold or did he do it himself? If you can already see botch, you should keep your hands off the car, increased wear and tear and damage are inevitable. If the vehicle is so cheap because of the botched intake manifold and the seller also mentioned this - then of course a certain budget must be planned in order to make the corresponding component functional or to replace it with a new one. Even if the installation has been carried out correctly, you should look out for damage as a result of auto tuning and a sensible combination of components. For example, if a naturally aspirated engine was equipped with a turbo kit without reinforcing the pistons or connecting rods, the increase in performance should be treated with caution.
Be careful with turbo, - compressor conversions
The often much higher boost pressure also increases the force acting on these components significantly and those are not designed for this performance from the factory. But here, too, it depends very specifically on the vehicle and the circumstances. There are certainly engines that are durable in the standard state with little boost pressure and still have a significant performance increase recorded. But if everything fits, you should finally check whether all changes in the vehicle registration are registered or whether a general operating permit is available. If this is not the case, you must have the parts inspected by an authorized testing authority, for example TÜV or Dekra, by individual inspection. In this case, of course, you bear the cost and the risk that the installed parts do not fit the vehicle and something must be rebuilt. If you follow these tips, should not go wrong with the next car purchase!
Of course that had not happened yet!
