Degreeing Camshafts
In lay manís terms, degreeing your cams means synchronizing the camshaft's position with the crankshaft. A few degrees of misalignment can dramatically affect the engine's operation.  A car with properly degreed cams will make more power than a car with undegreed cams.  And as an additional bonus, with the cams dialed in properly, things such as idle, response, and drivability tend to improve as well.

Anti-Sway Bars: A Primer
How do sway bars work, and how can you use them to tune your carís suspension? Most performance people know that stiffer rear sway bars reduce the understeering tendencies of a vehicle, but if you ask them exactly why this is they generally draw a blank. Usually they know the results, but not the reasons behind chassis tuning. This article is intended to answer those questions as well as give readers a better understanding of what goes on in your suspension when you take a corner.
