With all the tumultuous events going on in the world, there's at least one thing providing a little bit of solace: that stimulus check that most should have received by now to help them get through this pandemic.
If you're a true gearhead, then we know you've already been calculating how much you can budget to buy European aftermarket parts to upgrade your ride. Don't worry — we're right there with you!
In this article, we'll go over a few of the most value-for-money aftermarket parts you should consider purchasing with your stimulus check.
Do you consistently use your car just for the track? Are you a rally warrior tearing it up every other weekend on closed dirt circuits? If so, then you need a roll cage for your car.
A roll cage has several benefits. The first benefit is safety: should you ever crash or flip the car, rest assured that the roll cage will help minimize damage both to the vehicle and to you, the driver. Secondly, a roll cage will also help to stiffen up the chassis, helping your car to handle tight turns better with minimal body roll.
Stainless Steel Muffler
What is the advantage of an aftermarket stainless steel muffler over the stock muffler that came with your vehicle? The answer is double-edged.
First, stainless steel doesn't rust, even in the long-term. Because of the position of the muffler on the underbody of the car, it's very susceptible to retaining moisture, which in turn provides ample opportunity for a muffler, which isn't made out of stainless steel, to rust.
Second, the resonance of a stainless steel muffler makes the exhaust note sound just that much better. And who doesn't want their car to sound better without having to go through the hassle of a muffler delete?
The way an intercooler works is simple. If you have a turbocharged or supercharged vehicle, you already know that the power gains provided by your turbocharger or supercharger result from more air being forced into the engine. This results in a cleaner, more efficient burn in your engine, which in turn predicates more power and better fuel economy.
An intercooler will cool the air in the turbocharger or supercharger unit. Because cold air is denser than hot air, the net result is that even more air is pushed into the throttle bodies. This amplifies the effect of the forced induction system that has been set up on the vehicle, resulting in even more power and better fuel economy.
