How to Tune and Modify Engine Management Systems by Jeff Hartman

Drawing on a wealth of knowledge and experience and a background of more than 1,000 magazine articles on the subject, engine control expert Jeff Hartman explains everything from the basics of engine management to the building of complicated project cars. Hartman has substantially updated the material from his 1993 MBI book Fuel Injection (0-879387-43-2) to address the incredible developments in automotive fuel injection technology from the past decade, including the multitude of import cars that are the subject of so much hot rodding today. Hartman's text is extremely detailed and logically arranged to help readers better understand this complex topic.
