High Performance Chevy Small Block Cylinder Heads


Graham Hansen


Any professional performance engine builder will likely tell you the most powerful and important components in an engine are cylinder heads. High-Performance Chevy Small-Block Cylinder Heads shows you how to choose the best cylinder heads for your application. It covers both Gen I and Gen II small-block Chevys, occasionally touching on the Gen III and Gen IV engines. The book taps into some of the best small-block Chevy cylinder head resources this country has to offer to distill valuable information on port design and airflow management.

This book is designed exactly like its predecessor, High-Performance Chevy Small-Block Cams & Valvetrains, in that it starts with the basics and works into more in-depth concepts and variables in an attempt to uncover all those subtle nuances that make power in the small-block Chevy. It features airflow basics, extensive flow bench tests (using the SuperFlow 600 bench), information on production and aftermarket heads, rebuilding and assembly instruction, and basic porting techniques.
