Who says you need a big-block in order to add cubic inches?

You can add cubic inches to your current engine without the need to replace intake manifolds, headers, motor mounts and so on, all at the same time. By building a "big cube" small-block Chevy, you can have all the benefits of a big-block, such as more torque and horsepower, without the associated extra weight and without the need to spend additional money.

In this new, all-color edition, Graham Hansen shows you on a step-by-step basis, how to build a big-inch short block powerplant. Hansen also goes into detail as to how you can select the best cylinder heads, camshaft, induction and exhaust systems intended specifically for a big-inch motor.

The book also includes dyno graphs for seven different, big-inch power combinations. From 383 to 454 cubes!


Graham Hansen has been a Chevy fan all his life, and has been building high-performance Chevrolets and Chevy engines for more than 25 years. His knowledge of Chevy engines and engine parts is nearly encyclopedic, and he's particularly interested in large-displacement small-blocks for street and racing use.
