Ready to explore the concept of engine torque and what it means for performance car tuning? Let’s dive in… Definition of Engine Torque In simple terms, engine torque is a measure of the twisting force produced by the engine. It is what gets your car moving from a standstill and allows it to accelerate. As the old saying goes: “If horsepower is how fast you hit a wall, then torque is how far you take the wall with you!” Torque is typically measured in pound-feet (lb-ft) or Newton meters (Nm). The higher the torque value, the greater the force exerted by the engine.  The Relationship Bet ..read more

While Audi and fast estates have been a match made in heaven for decades, the recently-released BMW M3 Touring upset the applecart and exposed Audi’s RS4 as lackluster. Can the updated Audi RS4 Competition save the B9 generation? That’s what I’m here to find out. Audi. While famous for its quattro system, has faced a great deal of criticism over the years. I can admit that I am one of those who criticized some of the brand’s vehicles. Take the outgoing TT RS, for example. That five-cylinder engine is a peach to listen to, but mated to the S-tronic gearbox, it feels lazy and suffers terribly wi ..read more

Modified BMW E21 3 Series On Air Ride

The owner of this gorgeous modified BMW E21 has spent 12 years transforming it into the absolutely immaculate build you see before you here. The end result is a testament to his passion for this classic 3 Series, and it’s simply wonderful to behold. We hate to start another feature by sounding like a stuck record, but here is once again a car that we feel is seriously under-represented on the modified BMW scene. The E21 does get love – you just need to look at the attention a really tidy example receives at any show – but it’s just not a car that is as well-catered for modifications as its E30 ..read more

We check out Michael’s Saab-engined modified Ford Sierra Sapphire, complete with 420bhp and perfect stance. When you visit a farm, there are certain things you expect to see – tractors, quad bikes, muck spreaders, all totally commonplace. But on a quiet little farm just a little north of Belfast, something rather special is afoot with this project car. We’re meeting up with Michael Scullin at Belfast port on a dreary winter’s day, and he kindly drives us to his farm to see this highly interesting build.
