If you are a teenager, buying a car (whether it is new or used) will be a little bit difficult to handle. The first thing to hold is of course the finances. This is where most teens find it hard to buy a car because they do not have the money. Here in TopSpeed.com, we give advises not only to adults but also to teens.

A vehicle is tipically the largest or second-largest purchase made during a lifetime. So it’s important to make informed decisions about car care, including what you buy at the pump. All gasoline brands contain the minimum level of detergents required by government standard, but that level is not enough to prevent the build-up of power-robbing carbon deposits in some engines.

A turbocharger is an exhaust gas-driven compressor used to increase the power output of an internal-combustion engine by compressing air that is entering the engine thus increasing the amount of available oxygen. A key advantage of turbochargers is that they offer a considerable increase in engine power with only a slight increase in weight.

An Engine Control Unit (ECU), also known as Engine Management System (EMS) is an electronic system, fundamentally a computer, that controls an internal combustion engine by reading several sensors in the engine and using the information to control its ignition systems

A cold air intake is a system used to bring down the temperature of the air going into a car for the purpose of increasing the power of the internal-combustion engine. A secondary goal is to increase the appeal of a car by changing the appearance of a car’s engine bay and creating an attractive intake noise. These aftermarket parts come in many different colors and many different sizes, and are an inexpensive way to increase performance.

An exhaust system conveys burnt gases from an internal combustion engine and typically includes a collection of pipes. In the most basic sense, the exhaust system simply vents waste gases from the engine. Depending on the overall system design, the exhaust gas may flow through a turbocharger to increase engine power, a catalytic converter to reduce air pollution, and a muffler to reduce noise.
