Maximum Boost.. A fantastic book for owners of turbo cars by Corky Bell.

Ok. So, maybe you’ve owned a turbo vehicle for a while, or maybe you just bought one used and could use some turbo knowledge.
Or, maybe you know a good amount about turbochargers but could use some help with calculating intercooler sizing, or exhaust piping size, it discusses turbocharger compressor maps, etc.
Its great for those of you who want to learn more about your factory turbo car and upgrading, or for those of you wanting to build your own turbo kit for your non turbo car.

Maximum Boost!

This book is written by Corky Bell, a turbocharging legend based out of San Antonio, TX. He is most well known for his turbo kits for the Mazda Miata.

This is an older book that is slightly outdated, but still a very good read.

It goes fairly deep into turbocharger explanations for the layman, and has lots of examples, formulas, etc.
True, a lot of the examples are of 80’s and 90’s cars, but you get the idea.

Anyways, we highly recommend this book for some fun reading and better understanding. Click the link above for Amazon and check it out!
