Engine production for the typical car manufacturer is a study in mass production, with the end result of producing lots of engines quickly, and as these fall within a wide range of standards they may not be optimized to give the vehicle and driver the best performance. Enthusiasts and racers in particular do not wish this from their engines. In order to maximise performance from an engine, it must be balanced and blueprinted to the exact tolerances that the factory should have given it in the first place. Four-cylinder, six, V-8, American, Japanese, German, the performance of all engines is greatly improved by balancing and blueprinting to produce more horsepower and torque, run cooler, last longer, and use fuel more efficiently. In this book, expert engine builder and veteran author Mike Mavrigan explains and illustrates the most discriminating engine building techniques and perform detailed procedures so the engine is perfectly balanced, matched, and optimized. Through the process, the reader will learn to measure, adjust, machine and fit each part together with precision tolerances, optimizing design and manufacturing. The book covers the block, crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, cylinder heads, intake manifolds, camshaft, measuring tools, final assembly techniques. An enthusiast who invests the time to precisely build an engine in this manner will be rewarded with an engine that will run strong and last for years. This book provides an unprecedented level of detail and instruction on the process of balancing and blueprinting your engine.
