Precision engine building involves both art and an extremely high level of applied science. My appreciation for the complexities and skill involved resulted from my early days of competition road racing, when I relied on various engine shops to prepare my race engines. Some of these experiences were good, and some were downright horrible. As time passed, I became more aware of what was involved, and out of necessity and an increased interest, I learned how to choose a skilled and experienced builder. In the process, I began to handle my own builds and to realize the enormous satisfaction that results from continually gaining knowledge. The skills and insights that I've learned over the years (and continue to learn) are the direct result of my relationships with industry experts who share a common trait: the passion for the pursuit of perfection. This book is dedicated to all professional performance engine builders for whom "good enough" is never good enough.
