Maxing Engine Performance with Engine Building
Installing a performance camshaft in your custom engine can increase the duration and timing of the valve openings during the engine stroke, which in turn will increase horsepower and allow your car to accelerate faster. Granted, performance cams tend to be expensive. However, If you choose to go this route, you may also be interested in header or exhaust upgrades which amplify the effectiveness of the performance camshafts.
A turbocharger can add up to 25-30% power gains. Turbochargers are excellent for any car, but can also be expensive. Superchargers are belt-driven. Although both turbochargers and supercharges have their own required maintenance that should be followed to better protect your investment.

Upgrading your vehicle’s air filter and intake system to higher performance components can add some extra horsepower to your engine at lower cost than some other performance upgrade options.
Upgrading your exhaust system can reduce back pressure and improve fuel economy and performance. This is always a good option in any custom build.
Reducing Your Car’s Weight to Gain Performance
One of the simplest ways to maximize the effective power and performance of your European car, is to reduce the overall weight. This makes every other system more efficient and by extension, it gives your car more power (without actually adding any extra horsepower).
Simple modifications such as removing the rear seats can cut your car’s weight by a lot of pounds (in some models). Whenever possible, use the lightweight component options for your car, including lightweight wheel sets instead of steel, and installing high performance tires to match.
