Red face Book for learning MS ???

Santa wants to buy me a book.

In particular a book to help me fully understand all those nice features of the new Tuner Studio..

Reading the chapter titles tells me this is NOt the book to buy.

Performance Fuel Injection Systems - by Matt Cramer and Jerry Hoffmann DIYAutoTune.com

can someone recommend something other than the Mega Manual ?

I'm a former auto technician and 3/4 of an electronic tech.
I've tuned cars by plug color, changing jets, power valves yada yada...

I need help with the technique of lap top tuning LOL

Thanks

go on DIYautotune and read their MASSIVE library of writeups.
then go on MSextra and read the tuning manuals for your specific unit (ms1, 2, 3, etc)

They will seriously contain like 80-90% of the knowledge you need to tune MS (well, aside from basic car knowledge you should already posses if you want to attempt tuning cars in the 1st place). The other 10-20% you can get from the massive collection of threads and writeups here.

Its not hard at all, its just time consuming and very tedious.

Thanks man!
I was there once in a while especially on my MS1 days but found it poorly written.

I guess it is worth checking it out before dumping money on a book.
