I'm not one for artwork however as of lately I was thinking about getting one of those plastic engine models and a good book on automobiles. I currently drive a Buick Lacrosse 2006 its more of a V6 luxury car I hear whatever that implies. I have been approached by people in the past whom were astounded by my lack of insight into such fields.
I recently read this article on one of my favorite websites and it seemed interesting: 5 Engine Modifications to Improve Performance | HowStuffWorks
Any suggestions on books/models? Any current on going debates among mechanics I should take note of?
