Re: The Tuning Book/Link Thread

Guy Croft



Modifying and Tuning FIAT/Lancia Engines Workshop Copy

I intend to write a review, but if you want a copy right now, order through the Guy Croft website. This is probably the most detailed book on engine building ever written, and Guy Croft doesn't mess around.

So what's it like Mr. Digits?

I could do with something new to read.

Re: The Tuning Book/Link Thread

Pretty damn wonderful. Although it's very much focussed on the FIAT engines of a bygone era (the Lampredi motors) it's probably the most complete book on engine building you'll ever see.

When all is said and done, GC has worked in F1, engine development, and run an independent tuning works for yonks, when all around have been mired in litigation and bankruptcy.

It's as close to being a "must have" as anything out there.

They're a matter of -- utterly undisputed -- public record. For the F1 stuff, eMail Brian Hart.

Anything substantive to say?

I was intrigued by your "creditable" sources of information.

Anything to add?

A good few pictures of pages from the book, table of contents, case histories (including the fastest 'grale in the UK -- assuming it hasn't escaped) on the new GC commersial website here.
