Can I reuse ring and pinion?

If you previously broke the posi-unit and the gear/pinion were unscathed, then by all means, reuse them. Only way is to measure your backlash, pinion pre load and total turning torque, as well as check your gear pattern. Then remove the gears and install them to the exact specs they were removed at.

What is the cheapest way to increase horsepower?

5 Cheap Ways to Increase Horsepower (Under £400) Posted by Amsoil, 12th January 2018

  1. More horsepower!
  2. Upgrade your car’s air intake.
  3. Upgrade the car’s exhaust.
  4. Engine tuning & performance chips.
  5. Install a boost controller.
  6. Upgrade to synthetic engine oil.

Is it better to have more torque or horsepower?

So if you want to go faster, and get up to speed quicker, you need more horsepower. Torque, on the other hand, is the expression of a rotational or twisting force. In vehicles, the engines rotate around an axis, thus creating torque.

Does higher torque mean faster acceleration?

A car with more hp than torque will always be quicker since this gives a car acceleration and speed. Higher torque doesn’t mean one vehicle will necessarily be faster than another, though. For example, a Ford F-250 makes 925 lb-ft of torque, while a Honda S2000 has just 162 lb-ft.

Is 400 ft lbs of torque a lot?

Having 400 pounds of torque down low means you have more horsepower down low. Having 400 pounds of torque up high means you have even more horsepower then you had down low.

Why does torque drop at high rpm?

At high RPM, torque drops off primarily from intake and exhaust flow restriction. Volumetric Efficiency declines because the engine can’t breathe any faster. Mechanical efficiency also declines at higher RPM, due to increased frictional resistance. This further reduces torque at the output.

Is it better to have higher torque at lower rpm?

Generally it is preferred to have high torque at low RPM. It allows for a better start and a more fun experience in everyday driving. Torque at comparatively higher RPM gives a more powerful mid-range. This means that in the same gear, you accelerate fast.

How do you increase high end torque?

To increase torque is simply to increase the amount of air and fuel burnt with each stroke, this is in the realms of regualr engine tuning, i.e. getting as much air in the cylinder as possible.

Why do lower gears have more torque?

Within the capability limits of the engine, shifting into a lower gear allows the engine to turn faster, allowing it to produce more power which the transmission converts into greater output torque for a given wheel speed.

What gear gives the most torque?

More torque is produced by lower gears. Power remains essentially constant through all gears, however the product of torque and speed is power… so as you change to lower gears delivering more torque, you will operate at lower rotational speeds. Higher gears yield less torque but more rotational speed.

Does 1st gear have more torque?

There is more torque applied in 1st gear in a particular range of RPM, but as the engine’s torque falls with increasing RPM, there comes a speed in 1st where you get more torque at the wheels when you’re in 2nd.

What gear ratio is better for torque?

In general, a lower final drive ratio will lead to less torque at the wheels but a higher top speed. Meanwhile, a higher ratio will result in the opposite, i.e. more torque at the wheels but a lower top speed. Remember, this is done without any change to the power and torque of the engine.
