How does car tuning work?

I need to get my car tuned and I have little to no idea of what that means. What happens to your car when you tune it?

Tuning a car means increasing a car’s power, handling, and speed by making a series of adjustments.
While there isn’t any single way to tune a vehicle, here are some common changes a mechanic might make while tuning your car:
  • Replacing existing pistons with lighter-weight pistons can make the engine more efficient.
  • Exchanging springs and shocks with stronger versions will help the car handle rough driving more effectively.
  • Removing excess parts can reduce the overall weight and increase your car’s speed.
While some of these steps are still viable, cars are more complicated today. That’s why tune-ups may now also include adjustments to the car’s computer to improve the vehicle’s functionality.
While you’re at it, why not adjust your car insurance? You may be able to get a better policy at a better rate.
