This book gives you the tools to build not just 5 or 10 horsepower or more, but 50 to 100 more with whatever budget you may have - or you can build a complete engine with 400-800 horsepower for a budget of $1,000-$7,000. Included are details of factory part numbers, easy do-it-yourself cylinder head modifications, inexpensive but effective aftermarket parts and more.
In a thorough and entertaining fashion, this book explains how to select the parts that go together for an optimal package, so that your engine runs reliably and maximizes performance. Author David Vizard shows you how to select the optimal crankshaft, connecting rods, and piston combination. Find out about the options and costs of a stock or aftermarket block. Learn the details of selecting high-flow heads. Easy-to-use charts take the guess-work out of cam selection. You'll also get the low-down on exhaust systems, ignition systems, nitrous oxide, and lubrication systems.
A special section leads you through 10 engine builds, which include dyno charts and parts lists. Find out how to build engines of 400 to 600 hp without nitrous (or up to 800 hp with nitrous). Includes 350 full color photos and illustrations. Buy now to build a small-block for a fraction of the price of a speed shop engine.
