It is important to make the distinction between a tuning car for racing or motorsport and car engine tuning as a hobby. Although many of the parts and methods used in a professional tuning car are compatible for use with your every day vehicle, they should be installed by people with expert knowledge.
The whole point of tuning a car is to improve the performance and not knowing what you are doing could have exactly the opposite result for the engine in your vehicle.
For example, you should really leave the installation and programming of a car performance chip to the professionals. They will be able to ensure that the chip is programmed and installed correctly and is compatible for use in your engine and not just for use in a tuning car. You can also change the suspension and tyres on your car to match those of a professional tuning car.
The addition of rims and modifications to the exterior of the car can also be handled by most people who want to enhance their vehicle to the specifications of a tuning car.
Changing engine components in a tuning car is also probably best left to the professionals. Once again it is important to ensure that the tuning car parts that are used are compatible with your vehicle. Installing incorrect parts can damage the engine and can make the tuning car dangerous to drive.
It is also important that the compatible parts are installed correctly. All bolts, screws, valves and other components to the engine parts need to be securely fastened with the right tools required to do the job. Even your every day mechanic may not have the know-how to successfully turn your vehicle into a professional tuning car.
