If you want to build a powerful motor for competition purposes, you need the right information as well as a road map that will get you to your desired destination. Tom Monroe's The Racing Engine Builder's Handbook is that roadmap, covering every aspect of the process, from engine theory to final assembly of the race engine. You will learn how to choose or recondition parts, inspect the motor for stress damage, how to get the right machine work, then assembly of all components and systems. All of the info is accompanied by hundreds of detailed photos, drawings and diagrams. Building an engine is not difficult. Building a reliable and powerful one is another story. Avoid expensive mistakes by doing the job right from the get-go, and build a racing engine that will be powerful, efficient and durable.
