    I enjoyed this book.

    If you the kind of guy who knows about engines but, wants to build a 650+ horse power engine, this book will get you going. With this book you will go over everything high performance from the oil pan up to the carb. A novice will have a hard time understanding a couple of the concepts that is explained in the book. This book is technical and I enjoyed the information contained in the book. I wish that I would of read it before I built my engine. Because, I had to replace my heads, intake, and carb. Then resell the parts that I purchased to begin with. I went from a 396 ci Big Block Chevy (bbc) with 475 hp to a 396 ci bbc with 725 hp plus nitrous. Hope this review will help someone.
    From someone who actually bought and read the book.
