How To Build Big-Inch Chevy Small-Blocks

Have you been bitten by the big-cube bug? The quest for big cubes doesn't have to lead to a big block anymore. Now you can add cubic inches to your current power plant without having to swap intakes, headers, motor mounts, and other accessories all at once. 

By building a big-cube small block, you can have all the additional torque and horsepower of a big block, without all the extra weight, expense, and effort. In this book, Graham Hansen takes a step-by-step approach to selecting the best OEM or aftermarket block, crank, rods, and pistons to construct your big-inch short block. 

He also discusses how to select the best heads, cam, and induction and exhaust systems, specifically for a big-inch engine. In addition, the final chapter includes seven different combinations for big-inch power, complete with dyno graphs!


 

How to Build Killer Chevy Small-Block Engines

Learn how to get the most horsepower out of the tried-and-true small-block Chevy platform in this all-new full-color guide.

Whether you are a hot rodder, a custom car owner, or a muscle car guy, you are always going to be looking for the latest and greatest Chevy small-block performance information. This book is a valuable resource on all the latest for the Chevy small-block owner.

How to Build Killer Chevy Small-Block Engines covers all the major components, such as blocks, crankshafts, rods and pistons, camshafts, the valvetrain, oiling systems, heads, intake and carburetor, and ignition systems. In addition, this book contains a large section on stroker packages. Also featured are the latest street heads from AFR, Dart, RHS, World Products, and other prominent manufacturers. While the design is more than 60 years old, the aftermarket for this powerplant is still developing. An in-depth, highly detailed example of a popular build format is featured, offering a complete road map to duplicate this sample build. This build achieved over 700 hp from 422 cubic inches!


While the GM LS engine family has earned a strong following and is currently the hottest small-block in the enthusiast market, the Gen I Chevy small-block engine retains a strong following with the massive number of these engines still in use throughout the hobby. They are durable, affordable, and a very well-supported platform.

Beginning with the earliest small block and carrying through the very latest "Gen III" models, CHEVROLET SMALL BLOCK PARTS INTERCHANGE MANUAL provides complete factory parts interchange information, allowing the hot rodder to custom-build his own high performance version of the famous Chevy "Mouse" motor from off-the-shelf parts. Includes factory numbers, casting marks, production histories, suppliers, component performance capabilities, etc.

"Will it fit? Ed Staffel's new book, the Chevrolet Small Block Parts Interchange Manual answers the question once and for all. This valuable resource arms you with more than 300 black-and-white photos and 128 info-packed pages. Numerous charts list casting numbers to help identify swap-meet-treasure... or trash. If you're building a Mouse motor, you need this book.-- Steve Magnante, HOT ROD, September 1998

"Ed Staffel Jr. has written parts interchange manuals for both the big- and small-block Chevy engines. These books cover not only casting numbers but all the different applications in which the parts can be used. Staffel includes clearances for easy engine assembly, cam specs, ignition tips, and more. He also gives advice on some aftermarket parts and points to watch for when applying them to stock Chevy engines. Both are excellent additions to any reference library." -- CHEVY  HIGH PERFORMANCE, November 1997
