The latest versions of the engines installed on the Volga, the 406s, have their drawbacks, despite the relatively high build quality and reliability. For GAZ 3110, engine tuning in most cases implies:
- Chip tuning.
- Crankshaft balancing. The weak point and common problem of the Volga engine is the imbalance of this part, which leads to the appearance of third-party noise and reduced power.
- Polishing the intake channels of the cylinder heads.
- Installing new valve springs. The engine installed on the "Volga", designed for high speed, respectively, and the springs on it are needed with high rigidity. Factory does not provide the desired level of stiffness, which leads to a hang of the valves in the upper speed range.
- Installing a new receiver.
- Installation of the turbine. Tuning GAZ "Volga" 3110 often includes just such changes to the engine. Despite the fact that the aspiration of the aspirated - a very troublesome and expensive business, you can meet such engines today.
Such tuning can increase engine power up to 230 horsepower. However, there are several similar ways to increase the power of the power unit.

Detailed photos, tuning GAZ 3110 which is described very accurately and in detail, will help to arrange the car in the style you like.
Established suspension "Volga" is not able to adequately dampen all vibrations and withstand loads, which leads to the risk of accidents and skidding.
In most cases, tuning this part of the car implies replacing the standard gas-filled shock absorbers. Their advantages are not only reliability and efficiency, but also the ability to customize them for an individual riding style.
Expensive models of shock absorbers also imply the ability to adjust ground clearance, so you can drive at high speeds and off-road.
For GAZ 3110, tuning the suspension also means replacing the standard springs with two-piece ones. Such parts are characterized by greater rigidity of the upper part compared to the bottom. As a result, the car’s handling is greatly increased, since during a sharp turn or maneuvering, the wheels do not come off the road surface, but are pressed against it.
Steel spherical hinges are installed to achieve maximum controllability of the car at the expense of comfort of movement.
Brake tuning GAZ 3110
Technical improvement of the engine, leading to an increase in its power, requires an adjustment of the brake system.

This type of tuning takes a lot of time, but the end result is worth it.
With this procedure, you can significantly increase engine power while reducing fuel consumption. Chip tuning can be done independently, it’s enough to have the necessary diagnostic equipment.
Using the devices, the firmware is determined, after which changes are made to the parameters of the electronic control unit. Properly conducted and high-quality software tuning allows you to improve some of the characteristics of the engine, especially if before it made its technical changes.
Recently, there is no diversity among the parts for body tuning as such: most stores offer rear and front bumpers, side suspensions or door sills.All accessories differ only in shape and color. In addition, the appearance of the Volga can be changed with the help of moldings and spoilers of unusual colors.
Accessories for tuning and include various little things, starting with a special self-adhesive film for the dashboard and ending with various LEDs. You can purchase scales for instruments on the panel, replacing them with standard ones - such trifles look original and unusual.
