Anybody else find this book as valuable as I have for working on Euro Bosch injected cars. 164, 928 and now "the Brick". Does anybody know of an even better book. This one needs to go even a little more in depth IMHO. But it is a good starting point in understanding the basics of Bosch FI. Is the Bentley manual by Charles Probst better?

Haven't seen that book, but how much motronic stuff does it have in it?

I have a Bosch FI Bentley Manual but it doesn't have any motronic info not sure if it is the one you are referring to or not.

The Probst book is good - has motronic info in it (although it's early motronic like on 12V 164 engines). I have it, but frankly, the FI on a motronic vehicle is so reliable I use it far less than I ever did my dellorto manuals.

Chapter 12 is Motronic, but only a few pages because much of it is the same as L & LH (Jetronic) with the addition of timing controls. In fact, the Fi is very much like the Volvo 240 I bought only with an AMM in it versus an AFM in the 164. The IAC is even exactly the same and the injectors are almost the same Bosch number only one digit off, IIRC, they where the same color which got me curious. Anyway, you have to read the Jetronic for much of the info pertinent to the Motronic. I'd give it 3 out of 4 stars. ;)
