Default good books for mainternace and/or performance upgrades

How'* it going everyone,

I was wondering if any one of the tech gurus could tell me the name of a book or 2 that gives good technical info on what performace mods are out there and how they work. I would also like to pick up a good DIY maintenace book for newer (2000+) cars. If I could find books that are specific to the Bonneville that would be a bonus. I was checking out Amazon.com and really did not find anything that was too good.

I looked for one for my '00. Couldnt find it at any of the major book places. I went with a Haynes because that was all I could find.

Chiltons is the bomb it tells you everything plus more its crazy how in detailed these things get and its well worth the cash........def better than any other book out there cuz i got another one from autozone and it doesnt even compare.....in fact i cant even remember the name of it.......shows how good that one was.....but the cool thing bout chiltons is it shows you all the wireing diagrams and how all the crap works so yah def look for it.....
