5.0 out of 5 stars Put boy racer adverts in their place 23 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
An excellent book for then enthusiast and begginer alike. Each chapter summerises the functions and basic workings of each main engine system, followed by the effects of tuning each component for performance/economy, and the results from getting it correct. Once you have read this book, you'll never look so blindly at 'performance part' claims of extra BHP. Don't touch your road racer without having read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book for tuning todays engines 19 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is essential to anyone wanting to tune a newer engine with electronics. Covers basics of cams, cylinder heads, valves, etc, then goes on to give good starting points for your application. Mainly written from the street performance / economy viewpoint, but there is info in here for ralyy, etc. also. Highly reccomended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the greatest engine tunning book ever written. 6 Jan 1999
By Hassan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I have read a few books on fundamentals of cars and todays engines, but none covered so much about performance/economy engines. Everything is explained in plain language, and the content are extremely iformative. It became my favorite book from the very first day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but not gospel 22 Aug 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
While there is a lot of good info in this book, I think the author is somewhat liberal in what he considers "fact". While it's an easy read and well presented, I wouldn't take everything for complete truth.

3.0 out of 5 stars honest info 19 Nov 2007
By Osorio Batres Silvia Rebeca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I like this book but I read it after I had already read 4 stroke performance tuning by the same author maybe thats why modern engine tuning seems to be just ok compared to 4 stroke performance tuning. What this book is, is very honest about actual results of replacing factory parts with aftermarket parts. After reading this book you also might be unwilling to spend $675 on aftermarket headers to get 3 more horsepower than the factory header.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad.. 27 July 2001
By "jasen666" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Certainly covered all the basics of combustion engines and introduced some key formulas to remember. It's a little European car centered, but engine basics are the same. It is a little dated now, first printing was in '88, so many newer technologies and recent advancements are not touched upon at all. Still an excellent resource.
