How to Add Power Steering to Your Classic Car

Adding power steering is a very popular modification for older vehicles, most notably old trucks or muscle cars. These vehicles usually have large V8 engines that put a lot of weight over the front wheels, and the trucks often have large, heavy off-road tires that further exacerbate the problem. Power steering reduces the amount of […]

How to Diagnose a Failed Turbocharger?

Turbocharger Not Working? A failed turbocharger can be much more than just an internal issue, the turbo failure may have occurred due to external issues. Turbochargers are designed to operate in very specific tolerances that don’t leave much room for variation. Failures can occur for a number of reasons from metal fatigue to overheating and […]

Differences Between Electric and Diesel Fire Pumps?

Both electric and diesel fire pumps provide fire sprinklers throughout a facility with adequate water supply during a fire. So, what are the differences between electric and diesel fire pumps? Some of the key differences between electric and diesel fire pumps include their applications, maintenance and cost, and lifespan. Electric vs Diesel Fire Pump Applications […]

Environmental and climate change benefits of diesel

There are few climate change-related diesel downsides. Burning a litre of diesel creates 2.7kg of CO2 versus 2.3kg for petrol, which is typically offset by the efficiency of an oiler. Local diesel is also closer to European standards than petrol, with the former achieving a sulphur mandate of 10 parts per million (ppm) since last […]

Pro Stock engine

Pro Stock engine increased block strength over the 5.9L crankcase and a 6.7L block. Further improving strength and reliability, the block’s water jackets are filled with concrete. It’s been machined to accept a girdle, 14mm ARP main studs (vs. the 12mm factory fasteners), cylinder sleeves and fire-rings, and incorporates a one-inch thick deckplate up top […]

Fuel injection has evolved from mechanical systems to a variety of electronically operated (EFI) system

EFI systems employ an electric fuel pump, typically within the fuel tank, to move fuel to the engine at about 40-50 PSI. Fuel pressure is accurately managed by either a mechanical regulator or by altering the electrical commands to the pump. More recent direct-fuel-injection systems boost fuel pressure significantly further at the engine with a […]
