Must-have Performance Parts for off-roaders

Cold Air Intake System

An improved air filter is the best thing you can do for your vehicle. These performance parts are essential for optimum performance. When buying air filters look for ultra-strong molded rubber flanges, which not only absorb vibration but also allow for secure attachment. You can also shop around for universal air filters, which will be suited for a wide variety of applications. Adding these performance parts will improve airflow and help to keep out dust when on the trail.

Throttle Body Spacer

An interesting theory from some experienced off-roaders is that using these performance parts will help keep your rig cool during the trail ride. Eliminating the thermal clutch on the fan and using a spacer instead makes more power. The idea of the fan clutch is to create better fuel economy at high speeds on highways. However, the slow speeds associated with trail riding, creates extra heat, which robs power. So the spacers are better performance parts for trail riding.

Performance exhaust

These performance parts will give your vehicle more power and more torque. It will also result in quicker response and can reduce the noise in the cab from regular exhaust systems.

A combo ignition system

Some performance parts work best in combination only. You can try hopping us the factory-installed spark on your rig with a new ignition system. The ignition wires, coil and mileage control box spark the fuel coming from the two barrel. Along with a fuel regulator for hill climbs and altitude changes, you can expect almost 50 percent improvement from the stock.

These are just some of the performance parts you can consider for your rig. With all the varying combinations and permutations possible on vehicles, you have to work with trial and error till you find the best possible combination of performance parts for your rig.

Hi there! This blog was created to share my off-roading, gear-related knowledge with those interested in the field. I’ve worked as mechanic for years and have been a devoted off-roader for as long. Now, I’ve decided to combine the two and share my experience with passionate audience. I do not claim to know it all – but when something new hits the surface, I will be on it to research its ups and downs. Call me an off-roading nerd if you like, and as long as you can find something useful in here – you are heartedly welcome!
