Get to Know Your Chevy Powerplant
Taking your vehicle to the local auto mechanic is something the majority of us have done or will do at some point in our lives. Unfortunately, for a great deal of enthusiasts, this indicates that they have no idea how to repair, modify, or upgrade their rigs on their own. Taking on the job of rebuilding or revamping your vehicle's engine is tedious but well worth the education in the end. If you're getting ready to undergo a Chevy engine project, you need to get your hands on a copy of High-Performance Chevy Small-Block Cylinder Heads by Graham Hansen.
Any professional performance engine builder will likely tell you the most powerful and important components in an engine are cylinder heads. This book shows you how to choose the best cylinder heads for your application. It covers both Gen I and Gen II small-block Chevys, occasionally touching on the Gen III and Gen IV engines. The book taps into some of the best small-block Chevy cylinder head resources this country has to offer to distill valuable information on port design and airflow management. It features airflow basics, extensive flow-bench tests (using the SuperFlow 600 bench), information on production and aftermarket heads, rebuilding and assembly instructions, and basic porting techniques.
