Building a motor for competition differs greatly from one built for daily driving needs, and although the basics are constant, the needs of a competition engine are quite different.

In Competition Engine Building, John Baechtel covers every aspect of designing and developing racing engines, as well as the tools, techniques and products required. In addition to that, he also addresses the proper way to use those tools and data effectively.

So, if you plan on building a competition motor, this guide should be at the top of your list, before you start sending money on parts and components.
