Sounds like a good one to have. I've looked for a single book for my Bonne, but it seems like all I can find are seperates?

Not trying to burst your bubble here. I own a complete library including both of those books and many others. Lots of theory and fundamentals only. You cannot replace actual facts from the flow bench and actual testing with theory.
Like Warren Johnson said some time ago:
If the results do not match the theory, change the theory.
If you want to learn the greatest and latest; get the Motorsports papers sold by SAE. The have the latest technology and results from actual testing in many areas from suspension, engine design and much more.
SAE has a Motorsports Engineering Conference evry year; at the end of the comference you can buy all the papers as a complete set, or specific papers. Unless your are an SAE member, the conference, papers and books have a higher cost.
Check out these links:
http://motorsports.sae.org/
http://www.sae.org/events/mec/overview.htm
http://store.sae.org/

Any person that has a technical degree, or a college student in a technical field can apply for membership. Don't try to apply unless you have a verifiable technical degree; most schools do have an SAE Chapter in campus and they will check your information and background.

I actually have been reading a couple SAE papers recently. (I was able to get a couple pdfs without signing up somehow)
One in particular that I am trying to understand better is "Development and Validation of an Impedance Transfer Model For High Speed Engines"
Some things are comming harder than others.
The reason I bought that book was to learn more about or as much as I can about all the fundamentals. So, then when I go and dive into more recent books and/or SAE papers I understand the knowledge they build upon.
I'll probably end up signing up. I'm one semester away from a BS in ME so I guess I qualify.

Yep...you should become a member and join the chapter at your school if there is one. It helps your resume a lot and additional consideration is taken by employers. In addition to being a SAE member, I am also a a member of the Society of Mechanical Engineers (SME) and the Society of Weight & Balance Engineers too.
