My Review:


Back with a second great book, this book is for every car owner who loves his/her car!  Doesn't matter if it is a sports car or your can find tips in this book to make it look better, sound different or just make you happier.


Here in this book, the author does a tremendous job of highlighting safety concerns. Unlike in the first book, there are some more physical chores involved in modding up the car.  If you do not follow the strict safety guidelines listed, then your car could be the death of you.


A really well written technical book for car owners. If you have the first book, you must get this one. The formatting again is so user friendly. If you only need or want to upgrade a couple of things, you can find those easy in this book.  A must own for every car enthusiast!  Another superb book that will save avid car owners cash while helping make their rides even more special.


My Rating: 5 stars
