Should be standard issue for any self respecting petrol head, can't recommend it highly enough.
Every tuning book I have bought since barely adds to what this book has taught me.
If you haven't got it and want to know more about how 4 stroke engines work, buy it.
I would go as far to say if it were on the National Curriculum, kids would be a lot smarter than they are now...
This book really does cover all aspects of tuning/modifying a 4-cylinder naturally aspirated engine and is therefore applicable to the majority of NA cars in the UK. It covers everything from fuel types, cam specs, head/bottom end modifications, cooling/induction etc etc, and not only discusses what can be done, but also what is and isn't worth doing for different applications (e.g. road use, track use etc).
If you have any interest in modified cars and engines, then this book is a seriously worthwhile read!
Well of course due to the many additional moving parts to a 4 stroke engine, I expected this book to be more technically detailed than the 2 stroke book...and it is so much so.
It's no longer a casual read, and you'd have to be (very) familiar with technical terms before you start. Having learned my mechanical terms in another language, this book made me struggle a bit.
In no way am I saying it's not a good book. But you'd just have to be forewarned about the difference in technicalities compared to the 2 stroke one.
