Chevy Small-Block V-8 Interchange Manual (Motorbooks Workshop) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chevrolet’s small-block V-8 is unquestionably the most successful engine of all time. In continuous production from its debut in 1955 to its eventual replacement by the Generation-III engine family at the turn of the century, the small-block was installed in nearly every platform GM produced, creating a mind-boggling number of variations to suit each application. 

 

The Chevy Small-Block V-8 Interchange Manual guides you through the myriad options for building a high-performance engine from factory parts and junkyard scores. It includes more than 25,000 part numbers, specifications, dates, and technical details on blocks, crankshafts, rods, pistons, heads, valves, manifolds, and much, much more. Covering all traditional small-blocks from 1968 to 2000, this newly revised edition also includes information on the LT1, LT4 and Vortec variants.

 

The Chevy Small-Block V-8 Interchange Manual shows you which parts work best for special applications and provides tips on component selection for performance and engine swapping. Automotive instructor, engine builder, and author David Lewis gives pointers on set-up and everything else you need to build, rebuild, or hot-rod a small-block for street or track, economy, or race!
