Why would someone consider fuel injecting their hot rod-whether a private enthusiast with a classic '55 Chevy two-door, or a General Motors engineering team working to introduce a new 280 horsepower (hp) twin-turbo V-6 truck? Read the first page

3.0 out of 5 stars US based info but good background 10 Dec 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this as a background reader for when I went from carbs to injection on my Rover V8. Good background particularly on sensors and K-jetronic (VW). Also bought Dave Walkers haynes book with this to make a more UK based set.
Can get lots of this off the web but this is a good start and has some interesting options. Mostly US based stuff and no mention of the DIY fuel injection options like Megasquirt or VEMS (old megasquirtAVR)

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to know 28 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The synopsis given above doesn't lie. There's a lot of reference to carburetion for comparison, and often the tone of the book is toward converting a carbureted engine into a fuel-injected one, but the subject coverage is comprehensive. It covers a wide range of electronics: factory & aftermarket engine control computers, sensors, ignition systems, etc., along with the injector technology itself. Formulas for power output vs fuel consumption -> sizing injectors, etc. Excellent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Are you lucky enough to have a system reviewed in this book? 6 Dec 2000
By Searoy - Published on Amazon.com
For the "Do-It-Yourself" custom engine builder, this book is of little use. Unless you own a car with one of the EFI systems discussed within it's pages, you are out of luck. There is no talk of tuned plenum/runner design, scratch-built custom applications, or carb conversions. Even the mention of forced induction is merely in passing as another option to explore, but is not expounded upon. In short, if you've got a 5.0 Ford or a Chevy TPI this book is for you. Other folks should keep on walking.

2.0 out of 5 stars An aging starter book, but little more... 11 Feb 2003
By Deadlyhead - Published on Amazon.com
First, this book is a bit out of date... 10 years old now. The author talks of many "current" technologies, but explanations and comparisons of the products are limited at best. There is a lot of emphasis on converting carburated engines to fuel injection, but only specific examples are given when it comes right down to it, leaving many people and possibilities out in the cold.
For those wishing to derive their own fuel-injection systems, this may be a good starter book, but leaves the reader with more questions than answers. It looks at converting a large cross-section of cars and trucks in the case-studies section, but only gives a general overview of the processes, with no real technical data to back them up or explorations of other options, which would be very helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic Fuel Injection Primer 6 Jan 2010
By K. Coates - Published on Amazon.com
The critic is right, it doesn't cover a lot of in depth stuff, but it's a great basic book talking about how these systems work. If you're new to fuel injection and need to know what all those sensors do and how they work, this is a good book. If you need info on plenum design, this book is way under your level.

Still a great primer though.
