    I want the knowledge of Zax

    Basically the title says it all. I'm a busy guy in a fast tempo unit in the army with a wife and two kids and a dog but I'd like to know a time effective way to get started catching up on real knowledge of cars. Where would some of you gurus recommend I start?

    this is where i first started. it'll keep you busy for a while.

    after that, just go into old threads here on topics you're interested in and read through them. you will gain knowledge just by reading others responses :]

    Yah I refer to the manifesto for a lot of things at a surface level. I am looking more for a good place to start on technical mechanical knowledge. Is there a good book/manual out there?

    It just takes time really. A lot of knowledge out there. Some good, some bad. Weeding through false information is especially difficult on the internet (as expected). To get started, here are my recommendations:

    Start with this -- A Complete Tuning Guide - NASIOC
    After you digest all the information, purchase and read this -- Engine Management: Advanced Tuning: Greg Banish: 9781932494426: Amazon.com: Books

    Spend some time on Wikipedia and seek opportunity to get your hands dirty. I can't overstate the importance of that last bit. It helps that I come from a technical background. If you do not, it might be worthwhile to pick up some ME books and get busy! Good luck!

    Nice i will pick up the book. I'm hoping I can get some of the mechanics to let me in on some of their services so I can get some tactile learning going on.
