"How to build Honda horsepower"

Didn't quite know where to post this where every Honda owner could see, but please, everybody go buy this book. It covers in detail anything and everything on Honda engines from n/a D16's to boosted dohc vtec's, with dynochart comparisons to build your puny Civic into a track-monster. I've spent many hours on the toilet reading this book and have learned a lot more than any forum or website could have ever taught me. Please read this book, it's a very, very good resource.

Re: "How to build Honda horsepower"

There are many good Honda/Acura performance books out on the market. One of the first two things I suggest to some one, 1. repair manual 2. performance book(s). It's always nice to know what your doing before you do it, plus they could save you LOTS of money doing it right the first time.
Like rubix said www.amazon.com & www.helminc.com
Honda/Acura Performance
Honda builders handbook
Sport Compact Nitrous
*How To Make Your Car Handle

Civic Duty is Very Good, It has a real 'down to earth' author.
