    Try this- www.howstuffworks.com

    There's some car stuff on there (particularly a good bit on turbos), as well as NOS, bhp, torque, relationship of bhp to torque, Bugatti Veyron, Enzo.....and a bunch of other car stuff - as well as just a bit of other non-car stuff!

    I was specifically looking for suspension and engine components.

    did you have any other sites in mind Ste ?
