Diesel engines work differently than the gas engines most horsepower enthusiasts are used to, so different performance principles apply. In High-Performance Diesel Builder's Guide, author Joe Pettitt teams up with diesel and turbo industry leader Gale Banks to explain how diesel engines work and how to set them up to make big power. Pettitt uses over 325 color images and covers how to upgrade your intake, exhaust, turbo, and fuel systems to build more boost and make more power. There's even a chapter on nitrous and propane injection. This is the first and only diesel performance book on the market.

Over the last 40 years, millions of Chrysler, AMC, and Jeep vehicles have used these differentials, propelling these high-performance vehicles to victory on the street, in drag racing, and other applications. Chrysler used the Dana 60 and BorgWarner Sure-Grip high-performance differentials in the Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, Super Bee and many other renowned Chrysler muscle cars. These differentials have been tied to historic powerhouse engines, such as the Chrysler Magnum and Hemi V8s in stock car, drag racing, and other forms of racing, making history in the process. Jeep CJs and Cherokees have used the Dana 44 and AMC 20 and put these differentials under tremendous loads, which often requires frequent rebuilds. After years of use, these differentials require rebuilding, and of course aftermarket suppliers offer ring and pinion and other parts to upgrade these axles. In this Workbench series title, the focus is on the disassembly, inspection and step-by-step rebuild of the most popular high-performance differentials. Axles and differentials are not incredibly complex components, but there are some specific steps to follow for rebuilding, upgrading, and setting them up properly, and this book demystifies the process and explains it in detail. A book dedicated to the Dana, Sure-Grip, and AMC Jeep axles has never been published before, and Mopar, Jeep and AMC enthusiasts are hungry for this information. The Dana and AMC axles should remain in wide use into the foreseeable future, and therefore there will be a consistent demand for this information. This book will also feature extensive gear and application charts, so the reader is sure to select the correct gear ratio for a particular vehicle and application. Special coverage is therefore dedicated to ring and pinion gears. In addition selecting the best aftermarket and production axle shafts is covered as well as modifying and upgrading the differential housings.

The photos in this edition are black and white. Skylarks, GSXs, Grand Nationals, Rivieras, Gran Sports; the list of formidable performance Buicks is impressive. From the torque monsters of the 1960s to the high-flying Turbo models of the '80s, Buicks have a unique place in performance history. During the 1960s, when word of the mountains of torque supplied by the big-inch Buicks hit the street, nobody wanted to mess with them. Later, big-inch Buicks and the Hemi Chryslers went at it hammer and tongs in stock drag shootouts and in the pages of the popular musclecar magazines of the day. The wars between the Turbo Buicks and Mustang GTs in the 1980s were also legendary, as both cars responded so well to modifications. "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines" is the first performance engine book ever published on the Buick family of engines. This book covers everything from the Nailheads of the '50s and early '60s, to the later evolutions of the Buick V-8 through the '60s and '70s, through to the turbo V-6 models of the '70s and '80s. Veteran magazine writer and Buick owner Jefferson Bryant supplies the most up-to-date information on heads, blocks, cams, rotating assemblies, interchangeability, and oiling-system improvements and modifications, along with details on the best performance options available, avenues for aftermarket support, and so much more. Finally, the Buick camp gets the information they have been waiting for, and it's all right here in "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines."

Der Dieselmotor und die Einspritzanlage bilden eine untrennbare Einheit. In zunehmendem Maß gewinnt die Elektronik an Bedeutung, um die wachsenden Forderungen nach geringem Schadstoffausstoß und geringem Kraftstoffverbrauch zu erfüllen. Jüngste Beispiele hierfür sind das Unit Injector System UIS und das Speichereinspritzsystem Common Rail, das mit dem Piezo-Inline-Injektor die Möglichkeiten zur Verbrauchsreduzierung noch mal entscheidend verbessert. Die aktuellen Maßnahmen zur innermotorischen Emissionsminderung, aber auch zur nachträglichen Schadstoffreduzierung wie Partikelfilter, SCR-Katalysator, Speicherkatalysator und Oxidationskatalysator werden ausführlich erklärt.

Um das Funktionsprinzip von Turbinentriebwerken zu verstehen, reicht es nicht aus, das grundsätzliche Funktionsprinzip einer Gasturbine zu kennen. Es ist ebenfalls erforderlich, die Funktionen und den Aufbau der Triebwerkssysteme zu verstehen. Dieses Buch bietet eine Einführung in die Systemfunktionen von modernen Turbofan-Triebwerken. Es ist für Leser geschrieben, die mit dem Funktionsprinzip des Turbinentriebwerks vertraut sind und sich grundlegend mit den Funktionen der Triebwerkssysteme befassen wollen. Mit Hilfe dieses Buches erhält der Leser auch eine Orientierung in dem scheinbaren Gewirr von Rohrleitungen, Schläuchen, Kabeln und Systembauteilen an einem Turbofan-Triebwerk. In diesem Buch findet der Leser Informationen über den Betrieb der Triebwerkssysteme, die Aufgaben ihrer Komponenten und die in der Luftfahrtindustrie übliche Terminologie. Die englischen Begriffe werden ebenfalls genannt oder auch im Text verwendet, wenn dies sinnvoll ist. Die Triebwerkssysteme werden anhand von Beispielen erklärt, die von heute in Verwendung befindlichen Triebwerkstypen verschiedener Hersteller stammen. Dieses Buch ist eine nützliche Informationsquelle für Mechaniker und Ingenieurs-Studenten. Auch Flugschüler in der Berufspilotenausbildung finden hier Informationen, die das in ihrer Ausbildung vermittelte Wissen erweitern. Selbst für Leser ohne Ingenieursausbildung und für solche, die sich nicht beruflich mit der Materie befassen, bietet das Buch umfassende und leicht verständliche Informationen. Es hilft ihnen, die Funktionsprinzipien der Systeme von Turbofan-Triebwerken zu verstehen.
