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. Here at Rislone, our customers want the best in performance, reliability and fuel economy. 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…
