The photos in this edition are black and white. Skylarks, GSXs, Grand Nationals, Rivieras, Gran Sports; the list of formidable performance Buicks is impressive. From the torque monsters of the 1960s to the high-flying Turbo models of the '80s, Buicks have a unique place in performance history. During the 1960s, when word of the mountains of torque supplied by the big-inch Buicks hit the street, nobody wanted to mess with them. Later, big-inch Buicks and the Hemi Chryslers went at it hammer and tongs in stock drag shootouts and in the pages of the popular musclecar magazines of the day. The wars between the Turbo Buicks and Mustang GTs in the 1980s were also legendary, as both cars responded so well to modifications. "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines" is the first performance engine book ever published on the Buick family of engines. This book covers everything from the Nailheads of the '50s and early '60s, to the later evolutions of the Buick V-8 through the '60s and '70s, through to the turbo V-6 models of the '70s and '80s. Veteran magazine writer and Buick owner Jefferson Bryant supplies the most up-to-date information on heads, blocks, cams, rotating assemblies, interchangeability, and oiling-system improvements and modifications, along with details on the best performance options available, avenues for aftermarket support, and so much more. Finally, the Buick camp gets the information they have been waiting for, and it's all right here in "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines."

Ever since its introduction in 1955, Chevrolet's small-block V-8 has defined performance. It was the first lightweight, overhead-valve V-8 engine ever available to the masses at an affordable price and, better yet, had tremendous untapped performance potential, making it the performance engine of choice to this day. What sets the Chevy small-block further apart is the fact that a builder does not have to spend big money to get big horsepower numbers. Using multiple examples of engine builds and case studies, The Chevrolet Small-Block Bible provides the reader with the information needed to build anything for a mild street engine for use in a custom or daily driver to a cost-is-no-object dream build. Includes parts selection, blue printing, basic machine work, and more.
