5.0 out of 5 stars I won't lie to you..., 30 Aug. 2006
This review is from: Tuning the A-Series Engine: The Definitive Manual on Tuning for Performance or Economy (Hardcover)
This is an excellent book with the majority of information you would need to modify your A series engine for performance or economy. I did find, however, that it is more orientated at the performance market (I'm not complaining).

The book is set out in chapters with each one talking about a different aspect/part of the engine (i.e. carburettor, exhaust and cams) in detail starting with the theory then how to tune the engine. It contains lots of experimental data found by the author himself comparing different types/makes of components. The author also gives his recommendations which, judging from how excellent the book is and his experience, are well worth taking into account.

All aspects of the engine are considered and the theory is excellent allowing the reader to apply the information to parts not made when the book was published.

I do have one criticism however, the book sometimes uses details and acronyms which have not been explained previously and is sometimes difficult to follow. Taking into account how detailed and generally excellent the book is, a bit of head scratching on some concepts is a small price to pay.

Not only a thorough book, but also a thoroughly good read...
