Pro Touring is the art of adding modern technology to aged designs to create cars that start, stop, drive, handle, and behave like modern performance cars. Detroit Speed is at the forefront of the Pro Touring movement. The company is in a unique position to design and manufacture parts; they also build cars and test the parts for their effectiveness on the street and track.

You will discover the history of Detroit Speed and how they design performance parts. You will learn to install subframe and rear suspension assemblies as well as upgrades to wheel tubs, brakes, fuel system, driveline, cooling system, and more; you'll also see an LS swap. Since the first generation Camaro is the most popular choice for a Pro Touring build, this book provides step-by-step instructions for taking a stock 1969 Camaro and making it handle and perform better than a new sports car. These same steps can be used for other builds also, as most muscle cars feature a coil-spring independent front suspension and a solid rear axle, with either a leaf-spring or multi-link coil-spring rear suspensions.

Includes 441 black and white photos and charts. Buy now to own the best book on Pro-Touring.
