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.

Contents:
● Let's Get Technical
● The Cylinder Block
● Crankshafts, Balancing, Damper, and Bearings
● Pistons, Pins, Rings, and Rods
● Cylinder Heads
● Camshaft and Valvetrain
● The Lubrication System
● Preassembly
● Final Assembly

Inspection, machining, and assembly processes are shown using the latest tips and techniques: valve guide and seat installation and machining; crankshaft balancing, cylinder-block sleeving, boring, and honing; oiling-system modifications, camshaft degreeing, and more. The preassembly chapter shows how to check that all components are fitted and adjusted correctly to ensure they perform after final assembly.
