From theory to final assembly, the full spectrum of racing engine building is covered in detail. Theory includes how to determine the effects of compression ratio, connecting-rod length, piston velocity, and cylinder-head airflow on power, fuel efficiency, and durability. How to choose, recondition, inspect, stress relieve, machine, fit, and assemble all systems and components are covered in detail supplemented with hundreds of photos, charts, and drawings.

Included are high-performance coatings to reduce wear, stress relieving to increase durability, special materials to increase strength, and modifications to the lubrication system to maximize power and durability.
