No matter what level you are thinking about, this book will help you make correct choices. -----Performance in Motion, Summer 2009
The book also has the advantage of being up to date, which is especially helpful in, for example the intake manifold chapter, where Finkbeiner is able to compare the most current aftermarket offerings. Also useful is a short but practical chapter on planning the engine build. --Musclecar Enthusiast, November 2009
The information supplied is very well presented and right to the point. ---Enging Professional, reviewed by Mike Caruso, Oct-Dec. 2009
