Share This Post


For car enthusiasts who crave exhilarating performance and improved driving dynamics, upgrading your car’s engine and exhaust system can make a significant difference. At Automotive Parts Distribution (APD), we understand the passion for high-performance vehicles, which is why we offer a range of products designed to enhance your car’s power, responsiveness and overall driving experience. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of upgrading your engine and exhaust system and how APD can provide you with the right parts to unlock the true potential of your vehicle.

Performance Air Filters

Upgrading to a performance air filter can significantly improve your car’s engine performance. These filters offer better airflow, allowing your engine to breathe easier and produce more power. APD offers a variety of high-quality performance air filters designed to fit different car models, ensuring optimal performance gains while maintaining filtration efficiency.

Exhaust Headers

One of the most effective ways to enhance your car’s engine performance is by upgrading the exhaust headers. These components help improve exhaust gas flow, reducing backpressure and increasing horsepower and torque. APD stocks a range of exhaust headers that are engineered for specific car models, offering improved exhaust efficiency and a sportier engine note.

Performance Exhaust Systems

Replacing your car’s stock exhaust system with a performance exhaust can provide a significant boost in power and create a more aggressive sound. Performance exhaust systems feature larger-diameter pipes, high-flow mufflers, and precision-engineered designs to maximise exhaust flow. APD offers a wide selection of performance exhaust systems, allowing you to choose the perfect setup for your car and desired performance goals.

ECU Tuning

Optimising your car’s engine control unit (ECU) can unlock additional performance gains. ECU tuning involves modifying the software that controls your engine’s parameters, such as air-fuel mixture, ignition timing, and boost pressure. Reputable tuning companies can provide ECU tuning solutions that unleash the full potential of your engine while maintaining reliability and drivability.

Cold Air Intake Systems

A cold air intake system replaces your car’s stock air intake with a performance-oriented design that draws cooler air from outside the engine bay. This results in increased horsepower, improved throttle response and a more aggressive engine sound. APD offers a range of cold air intake systems designed to fit various car models, allowing you to enhance both performance and aesthetics.
