More About Richard Holdener

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Richard Holdener was born in Washington D.C. but his family moved almost immediately to California. His first automotive experience came with his father at a car show. After viewing all of the elaborate horsepower hard-ware, Holdener was hooked on going fast. His garage has been home to a variety of high-performance machinery. The list includes a couple of Camaros, a Lotus-motored Jensen Healy, a 260 Z, a 230SL Mercedes, a 1972 911T, a blown crewcab Dualie, a pair of Hondas (one supercharged Civic Si), a Toyota Corolla, a Mercedes 450 SEL, and trio of hot motorcycles. First came the Honda 500 Interceptor, then the 600 Ninja, and finally the GSX-R750. Somewhere in all this madness came a 1965 Hipo GT and a trio of 5.0L Mustangs. Holdener's first article came from his Mustang adventures at the Silver State. Since this initial coverage, Holdener has contributed to numerous magazines, including Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, Car Craft, Super Ford, Truckin', Mustang Illustrated, Popular Hotrodding, Sport CompactCar, European Car, Pontiac Enthusiast, and many others.

Reviews - What do customers think about Building Honda K-Series Engine Performance (Cartech)?

Underrated   Aug 9, 2008
The strength of this book is its rather heavy testing of off the shelf, bolt-on modifications. In doing so, it gives people considering an engine upgrade a good initial direction.

I also like that the author stresses the obvious but often ignored point that in order to modify any engine effectively and safely requires tuning. (Who knows how much money and how many hearts this book will save.)

This is not a how-to-design-a-proprietary-600hp-bolt-on-kit book; nor is it advertised as such. But if you want your K to sing really well, you don't have the cash, time, expertise or interest in mastering the relevant engineering and black arts, and are not interested in spending a good part of your productive time reinventing what others have already brought to market, this is an excellent starter.
Don't Waste Your Money  Jul 12, 2008
Unless you're looking for nothing more than chassis dyno numbers for different (simple) bolt-ons, this book isn't for you. It contains little if any technical information regarding building these engines, so if you're interested in modifying K series engines, this book's a complete waste of money.
