FLI’s Approach to New Engine Installation

March 3, 2021

Thinking about upgrading your car’s engine? You should know that simply putting a new engine in your vehicle isn’t the entirety of the process. Depending on how old your car is, you’re probably due to replace some other parts as well. The importance of upgrading your worn-out parts and components is just as important as a new engine install in Santa Rosa, CA.

Fine Line Imports specializes in new engine installation. Not only will we install your upgraded and tuned engine, we go the extra mile. Before you get your car back, we go through the entire engine and replace any worn oil, coolant, vacuum, EVAP or fuel rubber lines with clamps to ensure longevity for the new investment. We also carefully inspect and replace any parts that control fuel, coolant, air or oil flow as well. We treat this service very seriously—we want you to get the best performance possible from your new engine.

Here’s what you need to know when you want to upgrade or replace your engine:

  • Work with experienced tuners: Any time you upgrade your engine with power-increasing components, you’ll need to work with experienced tuners. A good tuner will adjust your engine components for your driving type, climate, car type, fuel variations, altitude and more. Look for a company like Fine Line Imports that specializes in your specific vehicle type. They’re the most likely to understand what your engine needs. This is the most important factor in ensuring that your engine doesn’t fail prematurely.
  • Keep up with your regular maintenance: After you install your new engine or components, it’s crucial that you keep up with your regular maintenance. This is particularly important if you’re tuning the engine for increased power. Pay attention to your oil levels, and change them or top them off as necessary.
  • If it’s not broken, don’t fix it: Be careful with your modifications. Your engine components work together to create different performance effects, so adding a modification just because it sounds cool may actually work against you. Before you decide to modify a part, find out whether it’s reliable and works well with your existing engine and settings. You’ll experience better performance if you focus on the most important goals, rather than a complete overhaul.
  • Make sure to get a good air and oil separator or catch can: Finally, get a reliable air and oil separator or efficient catch can. Do your research, and work with a reputable company—otherwise, you might get a substandard product that doesn’t work with your specific engine type. These separators reduce oil consumption and detonation, while still allowing your engine to operate at full power. If you’re not sure what kind of separator to get, contact FLI.
