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. 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.
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. 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. 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.
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. Pressurized air is needed in order to burn fuel, but on the process of removing it from the engine of the car, gas will be surrounding the fuel. 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.
