1.0 out of 5 stars Not happy with my purchase 30 July 2015
By Jerome - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not happy with my purchase. I bought this book and I have to say I am extremely disappointed. Looking at the chapters it would appear that the content is valuable. However, the book goes into no detail, does not provide meaningful guidance and has no information that you couldnt find in 5 minutes on the net. I am a fan of DSE product and have serval in my pro touring build. This to me reads more like a book you may give to your spouse to explain the most basic basic things that are completely foreign to them. Like.. what is a brake system...

If you are looking for meaningful information from this book I would pass... if you are looking to avoid explaining to you wife what you mean when you say you are building a pro-touring car.. it might help..

By Graham Gott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book! Lots of specifics on how to make Pro Touring updates to any car, but the main focus is GM products, and first gen Camaros in particular. The book is well illustrated with color photos. There is a bunch of history and information on Detroit Speed, but I didn't feel as though the book was just an advertisement for their products.
