Engine tuning involves adjusting the internal combustion engine. This is usually carried out to improve performance, power output, economy of fuel, or durability. Regular tuning is often required as part of a car’s routine servicing, in line with recommendations in the vehicle’s manual. Though cars today will usually only need tuning approximately every ten years, some drivers choose to make modifications to help them to really get the most out of their vehicles.
Typically, a routine tune-up carried out by a mechanic will include replacement of the filters, inspection of emission controls, and inspection and possible replacement of ignition system components including contact breaker points and spark plugs.
Getting more in-depth, performance tuning is popular amongst many car enthusiasts, and can bring a vehicle up to professional show standards. If a car is going to be involved in races, for example, the factory design isn’t likely to be sufficient, and changes will have to be made.
