Overview

The Chevy small-block V-8 is the most popular performance engine on the street or strip today. Here an expert auto rebuilder and writer takes readers through the step-by-step process of hot rodding this engine for street or dragstrip use. Full-color photographs accompany the instructions, making the steps especially clear and easy to follow. The book provides all the detail anyone with a minimum of automotive know-how needs to do the job, from selecting an engine, removing the motor, and disassembly to working with machine shops, porting, shot peening, and using proper measurements. American Hot Rod also offers recommendations for aftermarket performance options, including advice on how to select the right carburetor, exhaust, and ignition, and how and when to use forced induction and nitrous oxide.
