TVR Tuning Tips and Modifications

Maximise your TVRs driving pleasure

TVR made a wide range of real drivers car – shunning much of the accepted gadgets like power steering and Aircon. Read our TVR car tuning tips and advice and join our TVR owners club. We have a wide range of tuning articles covering all models of TVR from the classic Tasmin to the modern Tuscan and speed 6. Sadly TVR are no more and it is probably for this reason that TVR are looking to modifications and car tuning to upgrade their cars. Following our tuning tips you will avoid many of the common mistakes and actually achieve the car setup you desire without spoiling that essential TVR ingredient. Please join the forum for model specific questions and answers and to meet other owners and see what modifications they have done.

TorqueCars started providing TVR performance part tips, car track day setup and car engine tuning advice and reviews back in 2003 and have grown from strength to strength with a fast growing membership of all types of cars including many, TVR owners. We are currently one of the fastest growing car tuning clubs around and certainly one of the friendliest. In 2007 we also organised our first full car show.

Our TVR comprehensive modification articles on tuning and styling are kept upto date so for the very latest TVR performance part,track day setup and engine tuning advice, tips and pointers please check back regularly. We strongly recommend that you join our TVR forums and swap performance part ideas with like minded TVR owners in the performance part forums.

If you have a TVR project underway we would love to hear about it, the Gallery section in the forum contains some interesting projects. Scroll down the page to see our latest tuning articles for your TVR.

The days of fiddling around in the engine bay with a spanner to make the car go faster are numbered.

Modern engine computers (ECU’s) take over many of the controls of all aspects of engine management from timing to fuelling and more.

This actually means you get better power, a cleaner burn and more reliable engine but it does not mean the end of tuning. Read More...

Chip Tuning – better engine management. Read More...

Performance gains are possible with the addition of bonnet vents.

Warm air really does kill performance. This is due to the air intake temperatures being hot and air at high temperatures carries less oxygen.

When driving an engine hard the under bonnet temperatures quickly build up and the engine has no choice but to suck this air in reducing your power. Read More...

Vents – adding performance with Bonnet vents. Read More...

The heads primary job is the mixing of fuel and air and delivering this to the combustion chamber.

Any turbulence or drag can restrict the air flow into the engine starving you of power. So this TorqueCars article will focus on the intake valves and how they can be improved.

The aim of head tuning is both to maximise the amount of air and fuel that gets into the engine, and to improve the mixture. Read More...

Big valve kits – larger intake valves. Read More...

The inlet and outlet ports on the engine block are usually larger than those of the manifolds that connect to them.

This allows for scope in the manufacturing process to allow for mismatched alignment.

Generally the engine ports are larger in the upstream flow direction avoiding turbulance but power gains can be made by matching these up. Read More...

Principles of porting an engine and big valve conversions Read More...
