Superchargers have become one of the most popular performance bolt-on products for all engine sizes--from the diminutive, but powerful, Honda and other import four cylinder engines, to Porsche and BMW engines, and Detroit's V6s and V8s. However, bolting a system on that works to the enthusiast's expectations and at the same time is reliable has been a "mystic art." No longer! As with turbochargers, Corky Bell provides clear and comprehensive information on how to select, size, and install a complete supercharger system that is both successful and reliable. This comprehensive book with numerous illustrations deals with all aspects of the supercharger system from the initial planning stages--what performance do I want from my vehicle? to how do I go about the installation? Corky begins at the beginning devoting chapters to the three basic types of superchargers, giving the reader a grounding in the pluses and minuses of the Roots type, centrifugal, and screw-type superchargers. From there he moves onto to the,other elements of a super-charger system, devoting a chapter each to: intercooling, electronic fuel injection, secondary components, and drive mechanisms. There are also chapters devoted to engine preparation, mounting the supercharger, and testing procedures. Each chapter is complete with accurate information, such as formulas for calculating necessary elements of the system.

Like a trip down memory lane, the stunning photographs in "Volkswagen Beetle: Portrait of a Legend" celebrate the social impact of the Beetle. From its humble beginning, to its modest restart after World War II, to its success as the best selling bar in the world, to the development of the Concept 1, the New Beetle prototype, "Volkswagen Beetle: Portrait of a Legend" tells the personal side of the Beetle story. Impressive production photos from Volkswagen's archives, as well as many from private collections, create an unforgettable viewpoint of the Beetle legend over the years, and an exciting, occasionally melancholic study of an icon's rise to fame. The book also allows a trip around the globe: after all, the Beetle was the first true world car. The Volkswagen Beetle is arguably the most recognized industrial product shape ever produced. But more than that, it has endured for generations, becoming a part of many families' cultural history. "Volkswagen Beetle: Portrait of a Legend" does not attempt to explain in words the reasons for the Beetle's success and appeal-the pictures themselves tell the story.
