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? This was made possible because of the number of inexperienced car mechanics present on the forums you will see in the internet that are supporting the idea that car tuners are more experienced and have more knowledge about cars than the actual car maker and environmental experts. There has been a confusion on what really is the purpose of the secondary air injection system of a car with these so called amateur racers and car tuners.
It does not matter from what car marketing expert you get the idea but usually the engine of a car could not run with 100 percent efficiency. 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. These unburned fuel or hydrocarbons will be flushed out of the car through the exhaust system like any other unnecessary gases. One of the elements that is measured in order to determine the level of emission on a car and at the same time is the key element of a car’s fuel that will create power, the burning of these hydrocarbons or unused fuel is very important in order to get the power that you need from your car engine. You will only be wasting these unburned fuel or hydrocarbons unless there is one person that will find a solution to get into the exhaust of the car where you will find these small amounts of valuable fossil fuel and inject them back into the engine of the car for it to have a chance to contribute to the overall performance of the car’s engine. If these hydrocarbons or unburned fuel will continue to got o waste, then they will only contribute to the pollution of the environment. 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.
So basically the main purpose of the secondary air injection system is to clean up those hydrocarbons or unburned fuel inside the engine of your car. You should be aware that you will be needing pressurized air in order to burn fuel inside the engine of your car, but during the process of removing these fuel from the engine of your car, it will be surrounded by mainly gas. Those hydrocarbons or unburned fuel will be intercepted and burned by the help of an air injection smog pump that will help propel the air outside your car through the exhaust system.
