Default Some "things" to read?

Well, I know what does what in an engine, I just don't know much more than that. I've done *basic* stuff before, nothing big. Just wondering if there are any "FAQs" or "Guides" or the like about anything engine, or car in general, related.

I know, stupid question, just looking for something semi-educational to keep me from going out of my mind in boredom.

Nothing in particular. Just something to keep me occupied. Didn't think it was possible- but I'm getting hella bored on the internet. ( )



Perferably...just...engine. Anything about it. Terminology, "slang", history of it, anything. Just something to give me something somewhat educational to make me...un-bored.

If that made any sense...

A tire spins... And the engine goes VROOM!!!

Turbos are exhaust driven, superchargers are belt driven... Turbos have great high-end power, but lack low -end power, while superchargers are opposite. Hense the popular use of turbos on small displacement import cars, and superchargers on the large displacement domestics... Though you can really put either (or both) on any motor...Large diesel motors are a perfect example.
