About the Author:

Daniel Stapleton has been a motoring enthusiast since childhood, working Saturdays as a boy in a specialist Jaguar restorers that modified AJ6 Jaguar engines for race and road use. These early experiences gave him a taste for performance modifications which he eventually put into practice with a variety of cars, including those of friends. One great success was an Austin-Healey Sprite that was in a mild state of tune on purchase, but went on to became a test bed for every idea imaginable, and was the core for his original two books on power tuning this particular car. A current and former contributor to numerous magazines ? including Top Car, Fast Car, MG Enthusiast, Track & Race Car, Grassroots Motorsport, and British Car ? Daniel is a licensed Motor Sport Association (MSA) Car Scrutineer, and officiates at diverse race meetings throughout the Midlands.
