The following text specifically includes lots internal links on topics related to Auto tuning. While in this article the respective key points are only ever be briefly addressed, the respective link leads to a fuller explanation of the respective term. We hope you have a little one with it Overview to be able to enter the extensive world of tuning. When it comes to vehicle tuning, many have one premade picture before your eyes. That would supposedly work just to get deeper, stronger and wider. However, this is not really true, because the topic comprises many more possibilities. The real meaning of Tuning is very different because this is what it is not only for improvements in terms of performance or gross vehicle characteristics. Tuning can also be very pragmatic, for example To save fuel. Of course also find optical or acoustic Changes to the vehicles take place that are simply part of it.
Tuning on the body
The most frequently used option when it comes to vehicle tuning are visual changes to the Body. Here you can get involved with coupes, sedans and sports cars Spoiler sit on the trunk. The spoiler on that is less common roof built, although this is also possible with many cars. This can be of different sizes and also shaped differently. Examples are one spoiler, Ducktail spoiler or a rear wing. But not only the visual appearance changes, but also that driving characteristics. Here, the aerodynamics of the vehicle can be considerable changedwhereby the Buoyancy is reduced at best. This not only affects the brakes positive from high speed, rather also from lateral acceleration. However, spoilers also have one Disadvantagebecause through this becomes frequent the air resistance increases. This can have a negative effect on acceleration due to the additional weight and also one consumption have as a consequence. A spoiler should therefore always be specially tailored to the respective vehicle. Incidentally, such a spoiler is rarely made of metal (is partially prohibited) and often not made of carbon for cost reasons, but often only made of carbon because of the price Acrylic.
But not only the rear spoiler can be tuned, that too Pages- and wheel spoiler that too Side skirt is called, just like the front spoiler. With such a side skirt, most vehicles are hardly changed in terms of driving characteristics. The side skirt is used in part to keep the dirt off the doors and just look good. Of course, there are even more ways to improve the appearance of the body. For example with one front spoiler and spoiler, One Power Dome or small canards. And the doors can also be rebuilt. This can be for example Suicide Doors, scissor doors or Sliding doors be. And optical tuning also includes that Cover of certain areas of the headlightswhereby this one "mean look" receive. Likewise is a exchange of the side mirror possible, as well as changes to the paintwork or removing or changing certain elements, including that Trademark can belong.
Should, in addition to the trademark, also have the trim, Covers, Lettering and other unneeded elements remote, often filled or tinned, and usually matched to the color of the body, is made by a so-called Cleaning spoken. But there are also more complex options than Chopping are designated. Here the A, B and C pillars shortened. So the roof is lowered, so to speak. Whereby that Channeling again is a special form of lowering. The sectioningwhere from the body a median is removed, is extremely complex and known from old classic cars in the USA. That belongs also Lowering mittels Airride air suspension to what is also a form of Lowering is. Here, the body can, for example hydraulic pumps or Pneumatic pumps be raised and lowered at the individual wheels. In addition, there are special forms of tuning, for example Hot Rods call. Mostly American classic cars from the 1920s to the 1940s are pimped up. Another form is that California look, here in particular VW Beetle be rebuilt, and sometimes quite extensive.
Tuning on the engine of the vehicle
The Optimization of the engine is also very popular. But it works here not always just because of thatto get more power, i.e. more horsepower, out of the engine. Because there are other goals like that Increase in the maximum torque. Also belongs here Reduction in consumption as well as more power low speeds. However, if you want to do this with modern cars, you can have this optimization carried out, whereby the only under certain conditions also makes sense. The manufacturers of the cars actually have a perfect balance between efficiency, environmental compatibility and of course performance performed. Changes can often mean problems. Therefore, an engine that has been heavily tuned should be accordingly be handled carefully. That means that such an engine must always be correct be driven warm and also one Engine heater can't hurt. If someone is always full throttle with a cold engine or on short journeys, then that will work out in the long run negative on the engine and the Storage out. For older models, a Optimizing the engine be particularly useful. This is because, due to wear and tear over time, the adjustment provided by the manufacturer can no longer be optimal. Often also help here Petrol- or Diesel additives.
There are basically several methods for tuning an engine. The Boost pressure increase is one of those possibilities. In the case of naturally aspirated engines, it can also have a increased compression, new ones cam and with turbo engines just about the Boost pressure increase happen. They are also Increase in speed and Increase in displacement possible. It is also possible to use a Combination of the different ways to reach the goal. What people like to do, the installation of one Compressor or a turbocharger. Since these methods are proportionate expensive are, and there are hardly any vehicles without factory There are turbo conversions or compressor conversions of vacuum cleaners offered less and less.
The chassis tuning
This type of optimization is used two different Things; matters. On the one hand, the Optics are improved, so that the car, by lowering it, one sporty impression makes. On the other hand, of course, the Properties when driving improve. So with the conventional lowering the Springs against shorter ones and tougher exchanged. However, this exchange has almost only visual effects. Who, however, also the Optimize driving dynamics would like, needs at least a differently tuned shock absorber. Best as a complete set as a thread variant. The built-in springs can be used in a coilover adjust in height. Therefore, these are correspondingly expensive, but can be better adapted to the different situations in everyday life. thread springs but there are also individually, for use with the OEM dampers.
Tires and rims are part of it
And there are regular changes to the Tires and rims. Here are common because of the optics wider tires with larger rims installed. However, these can also negative affect the driving characteristics. Also belong braces with to the possibilities. By a Domstrebe becomes the body after changing the chassis stabilized. With off-road vehicles that is higher Place one of the possibilities that is often used as a tuning element. This is made possible by the Use of longer springs achieved, whereby the usable Ground clearance, often in combination with Off-road tires and Beadlock rims, increased is.
The audio and interior tuning!
Just in inner space some changes can also be made, whereby the Replacement of the steering wheel one of the most popular is. This simply becomes a smaller one sportier Model chosen, sometimes even the existing one Airbag deactivated, A registration of such a steering wheel is extremely complicated in you works Automobile. And also the tuning from shift knob and the pedals belongs to it. Here the components are exchanged for visually more appealing models. Sometimes these things can even be done with Lighting be, or just have a higher quality material. There is a lot available here for the tuner heart, just when it comes to the interior. So can the seats with new ones References be provided, or immediately through Sports seats be replaced. And also the interior trim can be changed extensively. It can also be the background of the speedometer colored speedometer dials replaced be or equal to one digital speedometer to be built in. Further options are one Roll bar, Roll cage, starry sky or an extensive one Interior stripping.
the sound system is often the highlight
But the tuners like to put most of the money - in terms of the cabin - into it Music system. And here can not only the car Radio it will be exchanged. That also works with them Speakers and all supply lines. Those who prefer the special sound can add additional ones Subwoofer build in. These will be happy behind the back seats, im trunk and sometimes even in the headrests built-in. If it is not loud enough, you can add more Loudspeakers build in. These can for example also in the trunk or extra behind the back seats find their place. With this form of extreme tuning, numerous fans compete extensively DB competitions.
What is legal and what is illegal?
Basically applies here. A vehicle may only be operated as shown in the Zulassung is recorded. For certain parts that does not affect the properties of the car (sticker, most foiling, Rubber lips etc.), a General operating license ABE, be enacted or they generally require no documents to be allowed to be used legally. Often, however, the ABE is issued, which is why no entries is necessary in the papers. Indeed set a link from your homepage to Fewo-von-Privat.de this ABE always be carried in order to be able to show them during an inspection If it is part of the EC means European Community acts, instead of an ABE a EC type approval displayed. However, it essentially corresponds to the ABE.
At a General type approval ABG for short, again it behaves differently. This is issued for various components, these then being a Single entry in the Vehicle papers need to be used legally. Thus, the acceptance is done by an expert necessary. This is similar to one Teilegutachten, often with an expert opinion by the Dekra or TÜV he follows. This also allows these changes easily enter. If there is no approval for the installed part, for example because it is not approved for the car model, the car must be used Test organization and maybe even will shut down. It is different with one Trailer Queen. Such a vehicle is not driven on public roads. Here you can almost do what you want.
