How to increase power and improve acceleration
This is a faithful reproduction of the Floyd Clymer publication of the same title originally published in 1959. Written in a style that removes the mystique from “performance tuning”, much of the technical jargon is replaced with easy to read language and, to the credit of the author, he gets the message across without the need for the reader to possess a degree in mechanical engineering. A straightforward common sense approach to the subject of improving a VW’s performance and while many of the manufacturers of the performance items referenced within may no longer be in business and prices have changed considerably since 1959, many new suppliers have come forward with alternate performance products. In addition, many of the vintage parts routinely turn up at swap meets and can also be obtained through a variety of vintage performance parts suppliers. Therefore, while some of resources may have changed since 1959 the information is still applicable and should assist in providing the reader with appropriate data to aid in the selection of the newer performance products currently available. This how-to manual also includes complete technical data, tune-up information, fault finding charts and a detailed list of construction changes that took place between the years 1957 and 1959. Out-of-print and unavailable for many years, this book is becoming increasingly more difficult to find on the secondary market and we are pleased to be able to offer this reproduction as a service to all VW enthusiasts worldwide.
