There’s lots involved with getting more fuel in though, the fuel is mixed with air, so you need more air too..this can be forced in with a turbo or supercharger for example. You would need to change things that restrict the flow of air and fuel too, like the intake and filters, and the exhaust pipe. There’s lots more involved, like upgrading components to take the extra forces, but that’s the basic idea. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp krovek42 Added an answer on July 13, 2019 at 5:03 pm u/niq-o is correct. Essential every change made to the engine is intended to better allow it to burn more fuel and air more quickly. Better fuel and intake systems can get more fuel into the engine, and things like turbos force more air in. Better components in the engine block itself (like camshafts, valves, crankshaft, etc) allow it to turn faster, making more bangs per second. And better exhaust helps get the burnt fuel away efficiently, making space for more fuel and air. All of this “add more fuel and air” has some consequences. The engine is now being put under much more strain and is getting much hotter. So we need to beef up the cooling and oil systems. Pushing the engine to its limit will begin to reveal any weak links. Some engine blocks are loved by tuners because they are known for their robust construction which allows them to withstand the increased power. High performance engines also demand higher tolerances in the fit of every component. Formula 1 (which is an extreme case) has the pistons so tightly fit in its engine cylinders that they are seized when it is cold, and must be externally heated before it can start. The internal components of an engine like that are all all cutting edge materials making every part much lighter and stronger than those in a traditional road car. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
