If you are serious about car tuning you've found the right place!

We only talk cars here at Torque Cars the serious online tuning magazine! We try to be realistic in our recommendations rather than subscribing to the more noise = more power philosophy.

We are truly unbiased in our articles and we frequently upset manufacturers of so called performance parts because we told the truth!

Join us in our friendly car forums to get involved in the community after you've had a look around our site.

gtr-cut-away3Welcome to the UK Torque Cars car tuning site we have an internationally focussed site as well on our .com domain. We focus on the latest tuning trends and car modifications to bring you "how to" articles and inspirational galleries of the top class show and track cars.

Car Tuning tips from Torque Cars


If you have not selected the right modifications you are faced with 2 possible scenarios.

1) You will have wasted your time and money for little or no effect or worse still

2) You will make your car unreliable and continually be spending money on repairs. We cannot stress highly enough the need to carefully research each and every modification in your car tuning project.

You need to bear in mind the fact that there is always a hidden cost with every modification you do. At the very least there will be a knock on effect where increasing the power in one area highlights a weakness in another one. Torque Cars aims to present the cutting edge of car modification advice and assist our readers and forum members to make the right decisions and get the most enjoyment from their cars.

The most popular first modifications are alloy wheels, intake and exhaust and suspension so you might want to start with these pages .

Todays featured car tuning article

Badgers 2.0 Vectra Turbo engine swap project.

Meet Torquecars member BAD63R or Badger, his name is really Andy but he’s been called Badger ever since he can remember (due to his surname) and lives in sunny England.

He currently owns a Calibra and a Vectra and has the habit of swapping engines in his cars. We knew that when he said he had got a Vectra and had no plans to modify it it would only be a matter of time before he started with the mods, but we were certainly not expecting a turbo engine transplant!
