The E36 was the embodiment of the luxury sports sedan, and the standard that other manufacturers strived to reach. And as such, the BMW 3 Series became wildly popular with BMW manufacturing 2.67 million E36 cars worldwide from 1992 to 1999. The new E36 featured a more aerodynamic design, potent dual overhead cam engine, multilink rear suspension, and a more luxurious interior than its predecessor. The E36 BMW seamlessly blended exhilarating performance with refined appointments and produced a comfortable yet aggressive driving machine that appealed to a wide audience. Although the stock BMW is a more-than-capable sports sedan, veteran author Jeffrey Zurschmeide delves into all the different methods for extracting more performance, so you can make your E36 even more potent. He explains how to upgrade handling and control through installation of aftermarket coil-over springs, bushings, sway bars, and larger brakes. Producing more power is also a priority, so he shows you how to install and set up a cold-air intake, ignition tuners, and exhaust system components. You are also guided through work on cylinder heads, cams, and pistons. In addition, you're shown the right way to install superchargers and turbo kits. If your 3 Series is making more power, then you need to get that power to the ground; guidance is provided for upgrading the transmission and limited-slip differentials. The BMW 3 Series has set the benchmark for performance and luxury. But even at this benchmark, these cars can be dramatically improved. Each major component group of the car can be modified or upgraded for more performance, so you can build a better car that's balanced and refined. If you want to make your E36 a quicker, better handling, and more capable driving machine, this book is your indispensable guide for making it a reality.

The photos in this edition are black and white. There comes a time in every automobile's life when the engine just doesn't perform as it should anymore. It may be burning oil, it may be leaking, the compression may be so low that it only starts on cold days, or maybe it just isn't very efficient anymore. When all of this happens, you have to decide whether to just dump the car and replace it, or add some new life to your old car by rebuilding the engine. Rebuilding the engine in any used car, much less a classic, seems like a much more attractive option when you can save a lot of money by doing it yourself. Sometimes the savings are the difference between keeping your car or letting it go. If you want to keep you car running strong and lasting for years, this is the book for you. A part of CarTech's Workbench Series, "How to Rebuild Any Automotive Engine" covers the basics of any engine rebuild in more than 400 photos of step-by-step instruction. Subjects covered include preparation and tool requirements, engine removal, engine disassembly, machine work and clean-up, short-block assembly, final engine assembly, installation, start-up, and break in. Also visited are the options of purchasing crate engines, remanufactured engines, and performance upgrades. This book applies to all cars on the road that feature an internal combustion engine. Spend a little on this book and save hundreds of dollars down the road.

The photos in this edition are black and white. Mitsubishi's 4G63t engine is among the most powerful engines ever in the sport-compact world. It's not uncommon to find one of these four-cylinder, iron-block, aluminum-headed, 2-liter turbocharged monsters making more than 1,000 horsepower with the right modifications and tuning - well above the 200-300 hp produced in the factory-made engines. Bolted into such cars as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Eclipse, and Galant, and the Eagle Talon and Plymouth Laser, the 4G63t has more than a cult following among sport-compact enthusiasts, who know and respect this engine's immense performance potential at the track or on the street. Up until now, in-depth performance information on the 4G63t has been hard to find. For this book, author Robert Bowen went straight to the source, Robert Garcia of Road/Race Engineering in Santa Fe Springs, California. RRE is the most well-known and respected Mitsubishi turbo performance shop in the United States, and Garcia is its in-house engine builder. Mitsubishi enthusiasts will benefit from Garcia's expertise and be able to build better, stronger engines than ever before. "How to Build Max-Performance Mitsubishi 4G63t Engines" covers every system and component of the engine, including the turbocharger system and engine management. More than just a collection of tips and tricks, this book includes a complete history of the engine and its evolution, an identification guide, and advice for choosing engine components and other parts. Profiles of successful built-up engines show the reader examples of what works, and the book includes helpful guidance for choosing your own engine building path.
