The heart of every hot rod is its engine?the "whatta you got under the hood?" Whether you're into street machines, rods, or even sport compacts, everyone wants to know about the engine: how big, how much power, and how quick.

Hot Rod Horsepower Handbook is a collection of technical articles chronicling their quest?covering how to get the most torque from a low-rpm grunt monster or boost the aching scream of pure rpm-dependant horsepower. While these tips mostly cover small-block Chevy and Ford V-8 mills, many can apply to any powerplant. So it's time to get wrenching.
