People who owns a car usually find the concept that something that is really not necessary is installed to their car. 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. One specific part of the car that has been misunderstood by these so called car tuners and amateur racers about its actual contribution on the cars performance is the secondary air injection system.
Even if you get the idea from a car marketing expert, you should know that the engine of your can will never reach 100 percent efficiency on its performance. A small amount of hydrocarbons or unburned fuel will not be converted into engine power when the process of combustion takes place inside the primary air or in the induction chamber of your car that is why your engine will never have a performance with a 100 percent efficiency. 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. It is very important that these unburned fuel of hydrocarbons are burned inside your car’s engine because these are the elements of a fuel that will create power and at the same time they are used to measure and determine the level of emission of your car. These hydrocarbons or unburned fuel will only be wasted unless there is a possibility that these very small amount of compounds of valuable fossil fuel find in the exhaust will be injected back into the engine of the car for another chance for it to be a good contribution to the performance of your car’s engine. As long as this hydrocarbons are being wasted, they are contributing to the pollution of the environment. The importance of burning fuel inside the engine of your car is that it will be less harmful to the environment even if it does not contribute any power 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.
