If increased performance and fuel efficiency are important to you then Richmond area Extreme Audio should be on your short list to visit. We have spent countless hours researching the best performing, most reliable products on the market so you can get the best value for your hard-earned dollar. Let’s be honest for a moment, who doesn’t want more power out of their vehicle? Have you installed larger wheels and tires and noticed a drop in performance? Or maybe you started towing and would love to have more power for take off and going up hills.
How about better fuel economy to go along with increased power? If that sounds like having your cake and eating it too, it is a reality with many of our performance products, as they make extra power by increasing the efficiency of the engine. More efficiency means lowered fuel costs. Here are some of our most popular products for trucks and SUV’s:
Air Intake Systems
Air intake systems have been popular now for decades. When a manufacturer builds a vehicle they are looking to make it as quiet as possible, and they can only spend so much time and money on any given part of a vehicle. Our vendors spend countless of hours on each vehicle to extract every last ounce of efficiency out of an intake system. The result is cooler, denser air getting into your engine in larger quantities, resulting in more horsepower and torque. A side benefit is you get to hear your engine a little more. We’re not talking about a roaring noise from under your hood, but rather the sweet sound of all those cylinders working in perfect harmony when you punch the throttle.
Throttle Body Spacers
Throttle body spacers are a nice addition to any air intake system. They are available for many popular vehicles and work on a simple premise. The air going into your engine will now create a swirling effect and when it reaches the combustion chamber the air and fuel will atomize better, resulting in more power. This is a relatively inexpensive part that yields more low-end torque and increased fuel efficiency.
Power programmers or chips as they are commonly called, have now been around for over three decades. In its simplest explanation, the mapping of your engine is changed to maximize power and efficiency. You may be thinking “I thought modern vehicles were much more efficient already?” You would be correct. The difference again is much like an air intake system, except this time an engineer may spend a thousand hours tweaking and fine tuning the software for your particular vehicle. The factory systems have to be designed to work with all kinds of drivers and all grades of fuel. The engineers designing our programmers have the luxury of making software to maximize efficiency at a certain fuel grade, like 87 octane. They can also build a software specifically for towing, or better fuel. And if you are one of the lucky people to own a turbocharged vehicle, the gains get really incredible.
Exhaust systems are popular for a multitude of reasons. They make more power and increase your fuel efficiency. But let’s be honest again. If you have a V8 engine under your hood and you punch the throttle, does it sound like it? Would you like to change that? We thought so. We have systems with aggressive, louder sounds, and products that will have a nice quiet sound while you are cruising up the road, but will let you know there is a V8 lurking under the hood when you floor it. And who doesn’t like the look of a dual exhaust system with those big exhaust tips? Our systems come in many configurations from out the back, out behind the rear tire, to all kinds of exiting locations for you diesel guys.
