Affordable Ways to Increase Engine Horsepower

Let’s be real: we’re all looking for extra power. Getting the most out of your engine and vehicle gives you better performance and can make driving more enjoyable.

While significant horsepower gains come from power adders like superchargers and turbochargers, there are ways to get the most out of your engine without breaking the bank. Consider these five ways to get more power out of your engine:

Cold-air intake (CAI): A cold-air intake kit reduces the temperature of the incoming air and provides more intake airflow, which provides more oxygen for combustion. Your car’s ECU (computer) will add more fuel to match the increase in oxygen, resulting in a noticeable…

Does Altitude Affect Vehicle Performance? In a Word, Yes.

Your engine requires a specific amount of air to run properly. Due to the lower level of oxygen at higher altitudes, those of you who live at elevation may notice a significant decrease in power and performance. (It’s not much different for humans, actually.) While this is normal, there are ways to combat power loss at altitude and combat the other issues your vehicle faces at elevation.
Like Driving on Mount Everest
Just as mountain climbers suffer from low oxygen at high altitudes, so do cars. There are several ways that this occurs:

Power loss: As you climb higher, there is less oxygen available in the air. Due to this lower density, your engine can’t develop as much power, since it uses the oxygen in the…

How to Keep Your Car on the Road for 200,000 Miles (or More)

There are many great reasons for driving an old car. You might want to save money for something else or have a reliable old car that you just don’t want to get rid of. Maybe you like going retro and simple – some of our customers are simply nostalgic about older cars and prefer the simple appeal of an older vehicle. This is especially true for DIY fans and mechanics who prefer to do their own work on an older car instead of taking it to a shop for high-tech diagnosis and costly repairs.

Whatever your reason for driving an old car, our team here at Rislone is behind you. We talk to customers every day with…

Preventative Maintenance for Your New Car

When you buy a new car, the last thing you’re thinking about is maintenance. There are a few things you can do, however, to keep your new car looking and running like new for longer. Just because it’s new doesn’t mean you can’t be proactive and get ahead of the game the moment your new car pulls into your garage.

Typical maintenance for a new car is different than for an older car, so we thought we’d put together a helpful list of those things you can do with your new car to keep it that way longer. There’s a Rislone product for you no matter how old — or new — your car is.
