Upgrades: Bigger Isn’t Necessarily Better

Upgrades: Bigger Isn’t Necessarily Better

You can spend heaps of cash on your car, yet not end up with the result you wanted. Before you start getting new performance upgrades, figure out what the end goal is. The modifications you choose should match your lifestyle and plans. First thing’s first, what are you looking to achieve? Are you building your rig as a weekend warrior? Aiming to go touring around Australia? Or just looking at getting more out of your four-wheel drive?

New to the scene?

If you’re a greenie, smaller upgrades are recommended. Starting off with a hefty pay for a big upgrade is risky, you might not get what you’re looking for. Instead, test how the car handles smaller upgrades and slowly tune the engine how you like as you go. This way, you get the most out of every upgrade and you’ll feel more in control. Sometimes, smaller upgrades can have more impact on your car and give you a better driving experience than a bigger one would. You could also start off with some modifications to protect your car. Some simple upgrades like adding a second fuel filter or a diff breather can add a level of insurance. Regardless of what you choose to do, make sure you use quality products. Wasting money on cheap parts or modifications will add up over time and you might end up damaging your vehicle in the long run. That in its turn can cost you thousands.
