Editorial Reviews

Muscle Car Review - Jerry Felde
half review, half news release on page 47 of the February 2013 Line Chaser
engine professional - Mike Caruso
"This is a how-to book on the very cool Chevrolet "W" 348-409 cubic inch engine. Even if you will never build one, that's okay because there is a ton of information that you can cross over to other applications. Know what your competition is capable of or you might be looking at their tail lights! Now that I have your attention, this book shows Lamar Walden working with World Products to produce the heads and blocks. It shows him pouring molten aluminum. It was no surprise to some of us as World Products sells these new blocks, heads, stroker kits, etc. for them. Friends, this book is worth every penny." -reviewed by Mike Caruso, engine professional, October 2012
Hemmings Muscle Machines - Mark McCourt
"The 348 and 409 were Chevrolet's first big-block production engines and the unconventional cylinder and head design put these engines into a class of their own. The design featured scalloped valve covers with the 348 and 409 becoming knows as the 'W' engines. They made history by bringing ultra high performance potential to relatively humble saloons and pick-up trucks and did well on the dragstrip, immortalized on the Beach Boys song '409'. The Mk IV big block replaced the 409 in 1964, although it and the 348 far from being put out to pasture, have enjoyed a renaissance with plenty of performance parts now available. This book from SA Design gives history, background and all the information on these engines you could ever require." -tkc magazine, January/February 2013
