Description 

This is the ultimate Chevrolet small-block V-8 engine resource. Ex-drag racer, lifelong small-block aficionado, and automotive journalist Tom Madigan guides you through everything from the history of Chevrolet’s top engine, to selecting the right engine for the right application, to building and rebuilding the engine, to choosing a crate engine.

If you've seen other books on small blocks, you still need this one because it has updated useful information, reviewed established techniques, and cleared up inaccuracies by presenting a comprehensive compilation of information from the world’s most knowledgeable small-block experts - like Vic Edelbrock Jr., Herb Fishel, Kevin McClelland, Jim McFarland, Ed Pink, Paul Pfaff, Mike Sessa, Robert Jung, and many others, Even though it's jam-packed with top-notch advice, the book also offers easy-to-understand instructions for the novice who is entering the world of performance for the first time.

It begins at the begnning; planning a budget and deciding what is required to complete a project sucessfully. It covers basic machine work, blueprinting, choosing the right parts, hints on how to build a backyard budget small-block and how to deal with the professional engine builder when the time comes. This book address everything from the original 265 to the ultrasophisticated LS6, budget do-it-yourself projects, how to build a 600-horsepower crate motor, turbocharging, supercharging, the latest in fuel management, nitrous-oxide blasts, and everything in between. This book belongs in your shop or garage. It is a tool. This is not a "how-to" manual but a "what to do" reference guide.
