  While this book doesn’t cover in-depth electrical troubleshooting or engine overhaul, it will give you a good head start in auto mechanics. After reading it and with a little practical work, you should be able to perform basic mechanic repairs and understand a lot more about how your car works. Despite the spectacular titles, these books are of marginal value to the diesel tuner as very much petrol/"gas" motor oriented & lacking depth. While most are PDF files, there is a few in mobipocket e-book format .mobi). Off the various mobi readers available can recommend Calibre (free & . "Author Baechtel's experience and writing capabilities shine in Performance Automotive Engine Math, and this book will surely be a strong addition to any high-performance library."(Tomorrow's Technician )"An invaluable reference guide for amateurs and professional alike." (Steve Hole TotalKitCar Mag ) "A must for any automotive enthusiast's library!"/5().   These are excellent resources on the basics of ECU operation and general engine tuning/operation.

If you’re looking under the hood, it’s the big piece of metal that’s found in the center of the engine bay that seems to have a whole bunch of other metal, wires and tubes attached to it.   The tuning school books any good? I wish they went more into turbo applications like atsv/cts vsport and ats/camaro t as I am getting a lot more people interested in tuning these cars and just like to learn more on the platforms of the right way on certain things as a lot of times questions go unanswered on here on some more complex problems.
