This book's title should be "HOW BOSCH FUEL INJECTION WORKS". There are very few ideas on how to modify your bosch fuel injection. The book explains how the fuel injection works and give some data on fuel injection systems installed in some cars. I have also bought other book: "Bosch Fuel Injection and Engine Management" that is definitely a better, more comprehensive, more descriptive book. Although there is just one thing that this book has, that "Bosch Fuel Injection and Engine Management" doesn't: how to tune the volumetric air flow meter. Ben Watson(the author) knows very well what he is talking about, so he doesn't bother explaining deep enough how every piece work. You better buy "Bosch Fuel Injection and Engine Management" by Charles O. Probst.

The title of this book is "How to Tune and Modify Bosch Fuel Injection". Well, is says almost nothing about modifying and tuning. Most of the content is about how the Bosch fuel injection works, and the differeces between the various models, but again, not what I was looking for...

Many good points and lots of information and specifications for all bosch systems. From the earliest VW systems to the latest. The modify section is short and lacks greatly. Ben Watson says almost nothing about modifing anything.

I have a Porsche with CIS fuel injection and spent $1,000's of dollars at shops trying to get a hot start problem fixed. This book taught me what the CIS did and what I needed to do to repair it. Great for tuning, but not modifying. This book let me know what $1,000's of dollars spent on Porsche trained mechanics could not do. Worth every penny.

This book is garbage. There are many words that have the same meaning as garbage that I would love to put here as well but I wont waste your time the way this book wasted mine. The bosch fuel injection book you need is the one by charles probst.

Bosch Fuel Injection and fuel management by Bently Publishing is a much better book, with all the same information plus more. This book has nothing to do with modifying or tuning fuel injection, it is mostly concerned with troubleshooting and theory of operation.

Back in the year 2000 I ordered this book, plus another 2 books about engines, written by Ben Watson...
Unfortunately, I was not aware that ratings by readers were available at Amazon, or reviews had not been entered yet...
Good books on these subjects are available, and the readers are rating them with 4 and 5 stars ...
I am not surprised that other readers also gave a low rating to this book, because the title is misleading.
