There's a common thread that connects high-performance enthusiasts; they want horsepower at the most affordable price. Hot rodders have always searched for ways to save money and improve performance, which includes fabricating their own parts, buying prime used parts, searching classifieds, and combing swap meets looking for deals. These high-performance enthusiasts take pride in beating the next guy in a contest of speed while spending a lot less to do it. Renowned engine builder and technical writer David Vizard turns his attention to extracting serious horsepower from small-block Chevy engines while doing it on a budget. Included are details of the desirable factory part numbers, easy do-it-yourself cylinder-head modifications, inexpensive but effective aftermarket parts, the best blocks, rotating assembly (cranks, rods, and pistons), camshaft selection, lubrication, induction, ignition, exhaust systems, and more.

This book is an all-new color edition of a previous best seller. It contains the latest engine-building techniques, profiles current technology, and includes today's affordable parts and engines. Vizard performs ten engine builds, which include dyno charts and parts lists. And it's all done at a nominal cost. Don't throw away money on bogus parts and inflated horsepower claims. Get the real scoop with How to Build Max-Performance Chevy Small-Blocks on a Budget today!

From the Back Cover:

Over the past five decades, the high-performance small-block Chevy has made history on the street and track. In this all-new edition of How to Build Max-Performance Chevy Small-Blocks on a Budget, David Vizard uses his 50 years of knowledge, wisdom, and practical experience to reveal the latest techniques and the best equipment for producing maximum horsepower on a limited budget. With the information in this book, you can build a small-block Chevy for a fraction of the price of a speed shop engine. In thorough and entertaining fashion, Vizard explains how to select the complementary parts for an optimal package, so your engine runs reliably and meets its performance goals. He examines how to select the optimal crankshaft, connecting rods, and piston combination. The considerations, options, and cost of stock and aftermarket blocks are discussed in detail. In particular, Vizard delves into selecting high-flow heads to suit your power ambitions and internal parts. He also sheds light on the intricacies and operation of camshafts, and easy-to-use charts take the guess-work out of cam selection. In addition, exhaust systems, ignition systems, nitrous oxide, and lubrication systems are covered in detail. A special section on ten real-world engine packages clearly specifies the parts package, cost, and performance outcome. It’s easy to build a maximum-performance small-block Chevy with cubic dollars to spend, but if you’re on a budget, this book gives you the tools to build a 400- to 800-hp engine on an affordable budget.
