Willys Workshop the last decade to fifteen years, diesel engines and the vehicles they power have exploded in popularity. This is because they offer superior fuel economy and performance compared to gasoline powered engines. The three main differences are:
Diesel engines compress their fuel and air more effectively than gas engines. This compression allows for much higher levels of boost pressure. This, in turn, offers better horsepower gains without sacrificing fuel efficiency. Performance diesel engines typically have a compression ratio of up to 25:1.
A basic turbo system will increase engine output by pressurizing the intake air and allowing for better performance. This is because the increased airflow helps the engine to run more efficiently and produce more power.
The Heart of Power: Exploring Performance Diesel Engines
Fuel injectors are another popular performance diesel upgrade. These kits allow your fuel injectors to build up more pressure and atomize the fuel more effectively. This also allows your engine to burn the fuel more efficiently and helps prevent overheating.
One of the most important factors in improving your diesel engine is ensuring that you use a high quality fuel. Co-op Premium Diesel is TOP TIER certified and has been proven to reduce deposits that lead to engine issues and poor fuel efficiency.
Ultimately, the biggest factor in a diesel engine’s performance is airflow. This is why diesel cold air intake kits are so popular. These intakes help your engine to run more efficiently by bringing in cooler, fresher air. This will not only help to improve your fuel efficiency but will also make your diesel engine run smoother and faster.
