David Vizard's Chevy Big Blocks How to Build Max Performance on a Budget. The Chevy big-block has been installed in millions of cars and trucks over the past 50 years. Extracting maximum performance has been the pursuit of engine builders ever since this engine was new in 1964. Master engine builder David Vizard takes big-block Chevy engine building to the next level and shows how to build these extreme high-performance engines without breaking the bank. It goes well beyond basic performance techniques and delves into detail on each component group of the engine. Vizard shows you how to build the ultimate big-blocks for the street: engines that are up to 850 hp on 91-octane pump gas. Vizard explains how to minimize intake-valve shrouding, reveals the science behind all cam-timing events, and explains how to arrive at the correct valve overlap for maximum efficiency. Vizard also covers the nuances of piston ports, rings, and connecting rods so that the rotating assembly is strong and working at its peak. Finally, a special section presents a number of max-performance big-block sample builds. Chapters are;
Displacement decisions
Pistons, connecting rods and crankshafts
Lubrication systems
Cylinder heads
Intake manifolds
Single carb induction
Tunnel ram intake manifolds
Electronic fuel injection
Camshafts and valvetrain events
Valvetrain optimisation
Ignition systems
