1.0 out of 5 stars How to Hotrod Volkswagen Engines
This book is way outdated. It is basically a history book, it doesn't even explain how to install these outdated parts. Don't buy it if you are looking to hot rod your VW. This book is a joke and I would not have purchased it if I knew.

Bill Fisher's book is what most VW fans start out with. It may be outdated (written in 1971 I believe). The current printing has no updates and lists some catalogues as being 50 cents. The information is what most people will find interesting. Once you understand what Bill is talking about you can learn more by participating in online VW forums like the Cal-Look Forum on the net. There are lots of people out there willing to help with advice and information.

Start with this book if you want to know how to increase the efficiency of your VW engine. You must be patient as this book is a bit outdated. However, many of the ideas here can still be used today. A good buy for any VW enthusiast.
