    Or you could do it right...

    If you want to build a sport compact car that only looks fast and furious, buy this book, but the general consensus among those who actually own and modify these cars for true performance is that following these ideas is a slap in the face to true performance enthusiasts. Of the modifications addressed by this book in the description, only a nitrous system actually contributes to making a faster car. The rest is merely fluff that will get you laughed at. The Fast and the Furious was a highly entertaining movie to watch, but if you really want to go fast, you owe it to yourself to find a book titled 'Maximum Boost' by Corky Bell.

    What the heck is this world coming to? If you buy this book you are a complete fool and deserve to have the wheels fall off your automobile when you punch the NOS as you are driving down the highway directly in front of a 18-wheeler that is going to run over you. But WAIT! We all know the hot body kit and pumping stereo system along with the bajillion stickers will protect you from the crash (not to mention those nice fluffy seatbealt cover thingys)

    Thanks to this book, my Civic is the hawtness

    I was skeptical at first, that this would be a book that showed lots of sweet pics, but no real technical help. Lucky this was not the case. My car now is totally Fast and Furious !!!!! With just some simple tools I found in mom's garage, I turned my 1.5 litre automatic Civic into a dream machine. The body kits took a lot of work to fit, but they look super sweet. My licence plate is at a cool angle, and the neons look tight at night. Everyone looks at me at stop lights and I just know they envy my pimped ride. I haven't put in my NAWWS kit yet, but am looking forward to smoking some of my buddies when I do. All the girls love my huge tach and they think I'm a cool racer. Even if you haven't finished high-school yet (like me), you can understand everything this book says about true performance engineering.
