Overview

For years, engineers, engine designers, high-performance tuners and racers have depended on the Scientific Design of Exhaust and Intake Systems to develop maximum potential from their engines.

Dr. John C. Morrison is one of the foremost authorities on the analysis of the induction and exhaust processes of high-speed engines. Together with Philip Smith, he gives a thorough explanation of the physics that govern the behavior of gases as they pass through an engine, and the theories and practical research methods used in designing more efficient induction manifolds and exhaust systems, for both competition and street use.

Chapter topics range from Simple Flow Problems and Sound and its Energy to Designing a System for Racing. This authoritative book will lead you through the complex theory to an understanding of how to design high-performance exhaust and intake systems for your own particular application.

The information in this book is state of the art - for 1972. Also, it's primary focus is racing cars, so don't expect to learn much of use in today's street cars with four-valve engines and catalytic converters.

This is the third time I've ordered this book. I have made the mistake (twice) in lending out this book. In fact, I ordered 2 copies this time ! For those's who don't have a degree in mechainical engineering (me included), don't be discouraged, KEEP RE-READING UNTIL IT SINKS IN ! I have considerable experience in cylinder head,intake,& exhaust manifold development, both OEM & racing. This book is a must have !
