Synopsis:

The photos in this edition are black and white.

The needs of a true competition engine are quite different than those of the engine under the hood of a typical commuter car. From the basic design needs, to the base component materials, to the sizes of the flow-related hardware, to the precision of the machining, to the capabilities of each pertinent system, very few similarities exist. Many books exist showcasing how to make street-based engines more powerful and/or durable. This book is different, in that it focuses purely on the needs of high rpm, high durability, high-powered racing engines. It begins by looking at the raw design needs, and then shares how these needs are met at the various phases of an engine's development, assembly, testing and tuning.

This book features reviews of many popular modern tools, techniques, products, and testing/data collecting machinery. Showing the proper way to use such tools, how to accurately collect data, and how to use the data effectively when designing an engine, is critical information not readily available elsewhere. The special needs of a competition engine aren't commonly discussed, and the many secrets competition engine builders hold closely are openly shared on the pages here.

Authored by veteran author John Baechtel, Competition Engine Building stands alone as a premier guide for enthusiasts and students of the racing engine. It also serves as a reference guide for experienced professionals anxious to learn the latest techniques or see how the newest tools are used. Baechtel is more than just an author, as he holds (or has held) several World Records at Bonneville. Additionally, his engines have won countless races in many disciplines, including road racing and drag racing.

From the Back Cover: The needs of a true competition engine are quite different than those of the engine under the hood of a typical commuter car. From the basic design, to component materials, to size of flow-related hardware, to machining precision, to capabilities of each pertinent system, very few similarities exist. Each major component of a modern racing engine possesses specific traits and engineering to excel in its task. The higher power levels and RPM ranges competition engines typically require present some very specific challenges to the engine builder. This book details the entire engine, system by system, and reviews the critical design elements and formulas used to develop them. Veteran author John Baechtel reviews many popular modern tools, techniques, products, and testing/data-collecting machinery used in designing and developing competition engines. The proper way to use those tools is shown, along with how to accurately collect data, and how to use the data effectively when designing an engine. The special needs of a true racing engine aren’t commonly discussed, and many of the secrets successful racing engine builders hold closely are openly shared on these pages. If you are considering the buildup of an engine for competition use, or if you’d like to learn what it takes to design and build such an engine, this book should be an essential part of your plan before you purchase a single component.
