They put a lot of emphasis on the way the cars look in the recent NFS games.

Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements

It's essentially adding cosmetic additions to your car that really aren't necessary. Like FWD cars that have giant GT-style spoilers, quad exhaust tips, chrome tail lights or putting body kits that are obnoxiously ugly and don't do anything to increase the performance of your car, only to increase your ego.

Let me guess, so you think I'm dumb for using the term "ricer"?

I wouldn't consider it rice for that, they are trying to make it fast and don't know what they are doing and haven't done the research. Technically you don't need to do internals if you want to add a turbo (is a good idea). A good tune with low boost will be just fine on a stock motor, just have to avoid detonation.

Now putting one of the ebay things on that makes your car sound like it has a turbo is being a ricer. Another example is an "Electric S/C" (aka Boat bilge pump) that are sold on ebay for like $40.

It also depends on the engine. Some take boost better than others. An example would the the Honda B16 engine. It is a very bad idea to boost those with stock internals because they have a 10.2:1 compression ratio out of the factory.

Haha, yeah I heard about that "Electric Supercharger" thing. Don't forget about the Turbonator.

You can do what BMW did and slap a giant turbo and dial the boost up to 81psi on a 1.5-litre straight four. I doubt any of the internals were stock, but still awesome. Ahh...I miss the old Formula 1 days.
