Better Horsepower and Efficient Braking

By: Kimberly Baker

Better airflow leads to better fuel combustion. Better fuel combustion results to more horsepower. More horsepower means a satisfying driving performance. A General Motor engine part that promotes more leverage for airflow in the engine's combustion chamber is the GM Throttle Body Spacer, which also adds 20 percent in the horsepower of a GM vehicle, depending on the model.

A typical GM Throttle Body Spacer contains gaskets and precision brackets to maintain the proper positioning of the throttle and the cruise control geometry. Installation of a is simple, lasting for only 30 minutes and needs no drilling nor cutting. It is designed to improve the auto's throttle response and is actually aimed at giving faster velocity to the airflow going through the intake manifold. As a result, more air is supplied in the combustion chamber. Improved overall fuel efficiency is thus, possible.

Improved fuel efficiency, however, will come to naught if the brake system does not work properly. A sound braking system consists of several vital components and crucial parts, like a disc brake, which is responsible for stopping or slowing up the rotation of the wheel. Disc brakes though, are broken though in several smaller parts---the brake caliper, brake pads, and brake rotor.

How does the disc brake work? In GM vehicles, for instance, as the brake pedal is hit, the GM brake caliper holds the with the brake pedal to generate heat through friction. As a result, the vehicle's movement comes to a halt. Excessive use of brake will eventually wear out the brake pads quicker and when it occurs, replacement of brake pads will require the GM brake rotor to undergone machine cut to restore its dexterity.

For the GM brake rotor to last, it must maintain the ideal thickness that could stand the intense heat produced whenever the brake pedal is hit. When the point comes that the rotor is not thick enough to handle the temperature, a replacement is needed immediately to avoid further damage on the disc brakes.
