    Best book around for the basics of V8 engines

    This is a must book for anyone who rebuilds or works on car engines. Covers everything from the basics to the advanced and does it in layman's language.

    The BEST book to begin with

    This book should be the first read by anyone interesting in modifying their automobile. By following his recommendations, I was able to build a late 70's 4-door car that outran many hot rods at the digs, got over 18 MPG on the average, produced less than 0.5% CO emissions at idle, ran quiet, and cost less than $1500. A MUST READ book for beginners!
