Car Performance Page







    This is a page of information and tips dedicated to performance enhancment of cars. Some of it will be generalized information and articles about the subject, and some of it will be specific information concerning specific vehicles. All of the information presented here is based off of my own experience with cars and engines in general, or was gleaned from reputable sources (such as combustion researchers at MIT). If you find something you seriously don't agree with, email me. (sgp14@msstate.edu) One of us is probably right. Also, most of the modifications on this page will be concerned with the engine, with a seperate page for chassis and handling modifications coming later when I have the time.  A final note: If you want to use some or all of the text on these pages, go ahead, but give credit where credit is due.
