Off Topic Discussion

If it's not really about tuning or wiring. Then it belongs in here.

I just wonder which books are informative regarding of tuning or engine building and modified?

I have the absolute conviction that the content of this website is absolute sufficient for everyone, but as you know some times when you have a free time you want to read some books so like this I asked regarding for the books.

I like both of the Greg Banish books for solid fundamentals on EFI tuning:

If you can find a copy of it, there was a VERY good book by the late Smokey Yunick called, IIRC, "Tuning for Power and Economy". I had a copy many, many years ago and it was 'borrowed', I've been looking for another copy ever since. Hmm, I may be mis-remembering that title, as I would have expected to have found a copy by now if it was correct...

I don't think it's been in print for years, but a VERY good read, written by one of the smartest people in motorsport, period!

Heck, anything he writes is great value!

For general motorsport I would recommend everything by the late carroll Smith is worth reading.

Both books have an American motorsport bias, but immensely informative on many, many levels.

Bosch Professional Automotive Information has published a book called " Gasoline Engine Management : Systems and Components". Author Konrad Reif.
