Advice 1: How to increase the power fields

The car "Niva" is not hurricane dynamics and high maximum speed. Therefore, wishing to get from this machine more power and thrust developed and tested different ways of engine tuning, high complexity to install and use and produced effect.
How to increase the power fields
You will need
  • The Original Niva. The car must be serviceable and the least worn.
Independently increase engine power "Field" in the following ways:

- set lightweight valves and their guides, lightened flywheel;

- increase of the cross section of the exhaust and intake ports of the cylinder head;

- to increase the cross section of the intake manifold;

- install the camshaft, increasing power and torque at medium and low revs;

- install straight-through exhaust system;

- set sport (light) timing.

- install the air filter of zero resistance;

- counterbore the cylinders of the engine (to increase displacement).

For the carbureted engine further establishes the Solex carburetor with a diffuser 24 to 26 mm instead of standard. The ignition system is changed to electronic with a Hall sensor from the more modern models of VAZ. The high-performance engine will require the installation of a radiator with increased cooling area. Described the program allows to remove with the engine VAZ-2121 up to 120 HP With the installation of two Solex carburetors, you can raise the power up to 136 HP
Many specialized firms offer the installation of turbo cars Niva and Chevrolet-Niva" on the basis of the GARETT GT17 turbocharger. The cost of installing about 60,000 R. Effect: power increase from 80 to 105 HP, torque from 120 to 170 Nm, a slight decrease in fuel consumption. The life of the engine is maintained, the quality of fuel – gasoline with octane number no less 95, maintenance – standard for vehicles with a turbocharger.
Fine-tuning engine control system using the chip-tuning. Changing the program in the electronic control unit eliminates the shortcomings of the developers and not seen at trials. For standard engine the "Fields" the chip tuning will increase the power and torque of 10-15%, for a turbo to 35-40%.
Transmission and gearbox "Fields" are not designed for high power. 120-130 HP to withstand without any problems. With further increase in power will have to strengthen or change gear box, drives, gearbox, etc.
Useful advice
The improvements described in section 1 actually accomplish in the garage environment. The installation of the turbo and chip tuning are performed only in specialized workshops

Advice 2 : How to upgrade Field

Lada Niva – the most popular SUV in the country. In high demand, mainly because of its price and is the cheapest four-wheel drive jeep in the Russian market. In addition to low cost, has other advantages: adaptability to bad roads, far from ideal operating conditions, low maintenance and reliable with proper care. From most of the existing disadvantages can be eliminated by upgrading the Fields with their hands.
How to upgrade Field
Upgrades start with the suspension. This is one of the most simple equipment, easily upgradable in terms of a simple garage. Front springs replace the same from the Chevrolet Niva. This will improve the performance of the suspension in the direction of increase of comfort. Bus replace with more suitable conditions. It can be either on-road tires with cast alloy wheels or high flotation tires with off road tread pattern. Shock absorbers replace imported gas.
Transmission upgrade by installing a shorter key pair from the car VAZ-2102. The designers have established on the Field the engine that was in production. But all-wheel drive car, he is weak, which leads to a marked decrease of the resource engine. Install shorter main steam will reduce the speed, but will increase tegometall car. This will decrease the load on the powertrain and would not allow him to fail prematurely. The bearings in the gearbox and transfer case replace the import – this will reduce the characteristic Fields noise transmission and transfer case.
Fit body protection. This is especially true for hunters and fishermen. For this manufacture of power bumper. They can be made from the appropriate channels or thicker tubes. On the front bumper provide a platform mounting the winch and weld conguring with protective grille for headlights. On the bottom under the engine, install a screen to protect the motor from impacts. Same screen (protection) can be put under the transfer case, fuel tank and other vulnerable units. On the roof, install an additional trunk. Along the doors – power thresholds.
To upgrade body equip wheel arches with plastic inserts and guide high-quality anti-corrosion treatment body panels. Regular anti-corrosion treatment of the weak. On the cowl and sidewalls embed additional air intakes. This will considerably improve engine cooling. This improvement is relevant not only for those who often travel on the road, but for urban dwellers, allowing you to avoid overheating in the heat when the machine is forced in the tube. Spoiler above the rear door to reduce dust on the glass when riding in the fields.
Upgrading the engine is a laborious and costly exercise that requires knowledge and experience to repair it. As a light modernization of the check and seal all electrical wiring. Spark plugs replace with more durable imported. For a deeper modernization with the aim of increasing the power of motor guide chip tuning (injector) or slide carb tuning. Also hone the cylinders and pistons of the power unit, install aftermarket camshaft. With the right approach engine not only adds power and torque, but will be more torquey in the lower rpm range.
Upgrading the interior, install it in a modern musical radio on, run it full noise, vibration and insulation. Upgrade heating system with parts from Chevrolet Niva. On the steering wheel and the heated seats make. Also will equip with electric mirrors and windshield wipers. This is very useful in conditions of winter use of Fields.
