Do you know where people with cars always get the concept that the cars they own are installed with something that they do not really need? Regarding the idea that car tuners have more knowledge about cars than the actual car makers and the environmental experts, we can easily put the blame about that idea to the forums full of inexperienced car mechanics in the internet. The secondary air injection system of a car is often times the main focus of these so called amateur racers and inexperienced car tuners because of the confusion of its actual contribution on the performance of the car.
The engine of a car does not have an efficiency on the performance that is reaches a 100 percent, no matter what car marketing specialist will give you that idea. The engine of your car will never run on a 100 percent efficiency usually because during the combustion process that takes place in the primary air or the induction chamber inside the engine, there is a small amount of hydrocarbons or unburned fuel that will not be converted into engine power. Like any other unnecessary gases inside the engine of the car, these unburned fuel or hydrocarbons will be flushed out of the car’s system through the exhaust pipes. The hydrocarbons or unburned fuel is the element that will provide power to the engine of your car, and are also one of the key compounds that is measured in order to determine the level of emission of your car, you should be aware about the importance on why it should always be burned. So unless there is a possible way that you can get your hands on those very little amount of valuable fossil fuels and inject them back into the engine of the car to give it another chance to be useful, then all that will happen is for those hydrocarbons will be flushed out of the car and will be wasted. They will only contribute to the pollution of the environment if these hydrocarbons or unburned fuel are just getting wasted. You should know that burning a fuel is less harmful to the environment than fuel that is not burned, even if the fuel that is burned inside the engine does not contribute to the performance of the car’s engine.
Cleaning up the hydrocarbons or the unburned fuel on the engine of your car is the main purpose of the secondary air injection system. Pressurized air is necessary to the burning of the fuel inside the engine of your car, but gas will be surrounding the fuel as it is being removed out of the engine of your car. An air injection smog pump will help propel the air right out of the exhaust system of your car in order to help burn and intercept those hydrocarbons or unburned fuel.
