Probst clarifies advantages and operating principles of each Bosch system and explains how they work. He also gives you high performance tuning secrets that really work for street and racing applications, and tells you why some tricks, like "fooling" the computer, don't. With over 350 illustrations and photos, this 224-page book is a must-have reference for do-it-yourself mechanics, performance enthusiasts, and professional technicians who want to understand Bosch systems.
