According to a recent survey, more than 150 million metric tons of various types of scrap materials are being recycled each year. Out of this 150 million metric tons scrap materials, metal scraps comprise of the majority of them. The time has come when metal recycling activities have become an essentiality to make our planet a safer place to live in.

The stock intercooler does a decent job up till about 17psi on the stock turbos, after that you would probably notice a significant gain, especially in warmer temperatures, with a nice front mount intercooler. However, keep in mind it will block some of the airflow to the radiator, as well as decreasing response slightly.

Breathe in… breathe out. What goes into your car must go out, and old adage is certainly true when we talk about gases. The stock Evo exhaust system can be a little restrictive and money spent on a cat-back exhaust system (that is, one running from the catalytic converter back to the muffler) will result in a much more powerful sound coming from your car as well as an increase in performance. I would go one step further and recommend that, if you can, you should replace the catalytic converter with a straight pipe, which is exactly what it sounds like. I should note though that this modification may be illegal in your country, and I would recommend checking with the local authorities before removing the catalytic converter. It could also cause you to fail the emissions test in your country.

The use of hydrogen as fuel can be considered a good option as it cost effective as well as environment friendly. With hydrogen, the main problem is safety. The problem of safety can be solved with the help special storage methods. The hydrogen gas can be stored as hydrides. These are materials, which can soak up hydrogen like a mop soaks up water. A tank is first filled with hydride granules and then hydrogen gas is compressed into the tank. This has numerous advantages as the density of the hydrogen is much more and the hydrogen gets chemically bonded with the hydrides, which is very stable. Hydrogen in this form is so stable that it does not get released even if the tank is open and does not catch fire even if a bullet is fired at the tank. Carrying it is also easy and simple.

Each one of these products must be separated into different containers in order to be picked up by the recycle catalytic converters companies or before being taken to a recycling plant.

Make use of the council recycle bin. Local authorities have issued many households with recycle bins now so there is no excuse for not being able to recycle. Make use of this facility and recycle as much as you can – with a bin on your doorstep there is not additional hassle involved and you could really help the environment in the long term.

Boooooooooooost! Yes, we’re almost at the point where we can turn up the boost. But how do you do it? The answer is a boost controller. There are 2 main types of boost controller, a simple manual controller or a more complex electronic boost controller. The former are cheaper and have a strong following in the DSM community, where the Hallman Boost Controller gets some excellent reviews. I opted for the extra features of the Blitz Dual SBC Spec S boost controller and haven’t looked back. Four different boost settings, a boost warning if it gets too high, and very accurate control of your boost has made it a no-brainer for me. The Spec S is also reasonably priced and is currently holding around 1.6bar of boost on my car without any problems.

There are not a lot of recycling laws on the books. Most people recycle simply because they want to. Many items recycled are those items that would spend years in a landfill. Items like plastic or aluminum can be recycled and used to make new products. This helps to cut down on the amount of raw materials that must be harvested and it keeps these products out of the landfills. Recycling has many benefits, but it is really up to each person to help keep it going strong.
