The High-Performance Subaru Builder's Guide is a great DIY performance how-to book written by Jeffrey Zurschmeide and published by CarTech Books.

This book, offered by The Motor Bookstore, explains in detail the similarities and differences between the Subaru models, and describes how to modify each for performance on the street and at the track.

This book was written in 2007 and covers the Legacy, Forester, Outback, Impreza, WRX and STI. Although it was written in 2007, many of the high performance topics will be applicable for later model Subarus.

The High-Performance Subaru Builder's Guide provides step-by-step, high-performance centric how-to instructions and tips on a wide range of topics, including the engine, induction system, suspension system, steering, clutch, transmission, drivetrain, brakes and exhaust components. Additionally, it covers high-performance tricks for the body and interior like aerodynamic devices and chassis stiffeners. There are detailed instruction and recommendation sections on turbochargers, nitrous oxide, intercooler sprayers and a whole chapter dedicated to Subarus in competition - like Autocross, Rallycross, Drag Racing and much, much more.

Jeffrey Zurschmeide has written for several automotive magazines and has written several books carried by The Motor Bookstore. Jeff Z. authored or co-authored The New MINI Performance Handbook, How To Fabricate Automotive Fiberglass & Carbon Fiber Parts, and How To Design, Build & Equip Your Automotive Workshop on a Budget. We carry all of these fine books and they are great sellers.

Note: This book is print on demand by the publisher which means it now has black and white photos and drawings. It also means that this book is harder to get; however, we always keep a high number of these titles in stock so buy today and ensure the success of your project.
