2.0 out of 5 stars A TON of reading, want more specific information, December 1, 2005
This review is from: How to Tune and Modify Engine Management Systems (Motorbooks Workshop) (Paperback)
I think this book will make a great reference. Beware that the type face is tiny and if compared to a book in a more regular font size it would be about 800 pages. Teaches you the basics on each of the components and how to make calculations but does not show you how to actually make the changes. I thought the last half of the book called Project Cars was going to actually go through a tune process on each and that you would learn from example...that is, until I actually got into them. They were just like descriptions of their project cars. I want a step by step of tuning a car. I know that there are a wide range of different EFI systems with tons of different software for doing the tune but the author should have spent a chapter or two of showing an actual tune, what changes were made to what tables and why the changes were made in between pulls. There was none of this. This being the case, I am now looking for another book that has what I am looking for. This one will be going on the shelf as a reference for possibly calculating fuel requirements for a fantasy motor or something. If you want a history lesson on EFI and some 101 on EFI components, this would be the book. If you expect to be able to tune a car, ANY car after reading this book, find a different book.
