Your drab, ordinary, unexciting old car can be transformed into an ultra-modern beast which is as good as the best luxury car with all the trappings. Updating your car with the latest accessories can convert your old car into a luxurious speedster if speed is your passion. You can improve the speed, performance etc of your car along with getting all the latest, high-end hi-tech accessories. Take a look at some accessories which will transform your car into an enviable beast:
Install a state of the art collision avoiding system
Following the rule of safety first, you can stay safe with a high tech collision avoidance system, such as the Mobileye-560. This has everything that is required to keep you safe, for example, pedestrian detection, lane departure etc. Most brand new cars have these systems, but your old car can be made safer too, with collision avoidance systems.
If you love speed, and your car can’t go at speeds you want to, it’s time to boost your engine’s power with a turbo or supercharger. On a normal engine, 100 bhp every liter is rated as highly tuned, but with turbo engines, you can get 250 bhp and more on every liter. You’d have to shell out a good amount of money, but still, it will cost you less than a brand new powerful luxury car.
You can spend a few grands on a great paint job, or you can go for a vinyl wrap. These are much cheaper, will only cost you a few hundred pounds, but make your car as good as new. Vinyl wraps are available in millions of colors, textures and prints etc you can choose from, and you’ll have a spectacular car makeover over the weekend.
Differ the differential
Experts suggest lowering the car’s gearing (with low ratio differentials or with close ratio gearbox), will increase the speed of your car, but the top speed will be less. You can swap your car’s diffs or gearbox with a different model or get help from transmission specialists who specialize in converting cars.
Get Nitrous Oxide
Do you want to get that burst of speed just like your favorite characters in the movie ‘The Fast and the Furious’, when they push the NO button? The NO creates extra oxygen in the engine for combustion and cools intake air as well making it dense. The NO is never used continuously but is used in sporadic, short bursts, when required. Some states and countries ban the use of NO, so check the local laws before getting a NO system installed. You also have to be very careful about the amount you inject the engine with, as too much of it will tear it apart.
Upgrade shock absorbers, bushings etc
Don’t overlook shock absorbers when you are doing everything you can to overhaul your car. Changing the shock absorbers can improve the performance of your car to a great extent. Change the brake pads, discs, bushings etc will lead to better performance of the car.
Soundproof your car
Get the feel of a luxury car, by getting a dense mat which is used on the floor, under the roof, on doors, and underneath the carpet as well. It will keep the car quiet and help regulate the temperature also.
Get new tires
Once you’ve boosted the power, normal tires won’t do at all. You must have those super sticky, wide tires which are made for a car which can go really fast.
Transform your antiquated machine into a turbocharged powerful beast which is great to look at and gives excellent performance, with just a few changes and upgrades.
