4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for Mini enthusiasts, 13 July 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Tuning the A-Series Engine: The Definitive Manual on Tuning for Performance or Economy (Hardcover)
If anyone knows about 'proper' engine tuning, David Vizard does!
A very useful, if a little text-heavy book - essential if you are planning to build your own A-series engine. Gives practical advice for everyone, whatever you use your engine for. Good sections from the hi-perfomance side of things such as Nitrous & Turbo kits, to the real world of economy and reliability. Caters for 850CC up to 1275CC+ engines. Useful section on the pros & cons of various bolt-on mods, and a quick refence guide with star ratings for the easiest and most common mods. Also useful is the 'example engine builds' as used by D.Vizard in his own Minis.
Not a book you can borrow however, there is soo much info here, you cannot possibly read this book and not want to refer back to it as you build you own engine. It's at least an inch thick!
Some of the info & parts mentioned are a little dated now, but if you know what you want, then your local Mini shop can always help you find the relevant part available today.
