    This book really delivers...

    I bought this book because I heard that Wayne Dempsey was working on it after completing '101 Projects for your Porsche 911.' That book was really good and informative, I was looking for a bit more. Wayne repeats the easy-to-read style that he showed in 101 with this new engine book. The book contains six chapters that include when to rebuild, teardown, machine shop, performance enhancements, assembly, and run-in. There's even a really handy set of appendices at the end of the book that contains all of the specs and part numbers that you need for all of the engines from 1965-89. I thought that this was worth the price of the book alone, as I have often tried to find this info elsewhere, and couldn't. The book is full-color with fantasticly clear pictures. Each step in the assembly process is documented clearly with colored arrows, and clear diagrams. There's even an intro at each assembly section showing you what parts, tools, and materials you need, so you won't overlook anything. My favorite part is Chapter Four, where just about every performance option and/or upgrade you can place on your 911 engine is explained in detail. Stuff that was real confusing to me before is clearly explained (just like it is in 101 projects). It's hard to find anything wrong with this book, as it really delivers on it's promises. I just wish there was more!
