I have read this book to learn more about the in line chevrolet engine and what can be done with this engine. This book answered all my questions and more. It does not cover any 12 port heads though, hybrid heads are covered in one chapter. Leo Santucci was nice enough to list most modifactions by purpose (street, street/strip, all out drag) and tells you what to do to get the performance you desire without building an unuseable engine. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking the build a six with more than stock perforamnce.

I'm a graduate mechanical engineer and former Chevy Six racer, and this book taught me things I never knew - or even thought about. It gives every piece of info necessary to select and build a Chevy or GMC six from mild street to full race. It even provides the part numbers and interchangeability info, so you can't go wrong if you pay attention to the author's comments.

Also included are the strengths and weaknesses of each engine model, modifications necessary to get reliable performance and power, and little secrets of tuning that make the difference between good and great engines.

If the info you're looking for isn't in this book, you don't need the info.

VERY highly recommended!!

Chevrolet Inline Six-Cylinder Power Manual This is possibly the most incredible well written and informative engine performance book ever written. It's not just that I am smitten by the late model Chevrolet Inline Six Cylinder motors. No they are a mere testament to perfection. Ask anyone who has driven a car with these engines and they simply last forever.
But I digress, what Mr. Santucci has done here is assemble and share his most comprehensive insiders knowledge to building these outstanding American engines into true performance overachievers! He also details everyone in America who specializes in building this inline six and gives the novice many tips on durability and general performance.
Outstanding and if I may say "The Bible" of the Chevrolet L6 Engine!!

Bravo!

Overall I thought the book was very well written, but I feel there should have been more attention paid to differences in different year heads. What years were better than other years etc. Also, porting diagrams/templates tips etc. would have been helpfull. I'm probably being overly pickey but all in all it is an excellent resource for the 6-cyl. builder.

In plain language, Mr. Santucci delivers insight into his love of this modest truck engine. He demonstrates how much real advantage knowin' has over book learnin'.
The book is not only very informative, but highly entertaining as well.
Thanks Leo!

I found this book to be very informative and easy to understand. I had been looking for sometime, for any information reguarding the chevrolet inline six cylinders, 250 and 292. It really help me with the knowledge and unstanding of this inline six cylinder motor, that i find to be very inpressive and highly underated by most small block V-8 chevy motor heads. I just wish I could have found this book long before I finished building my motor. But that's ok, I already have plans for the next motor and I will be refering to this book when building torque and horsepower.

Where was this when I was 16 with my version of a hopped up Chev 235? Now I want another one! Could use more technical and current resources for "inliners" to chew on. What there is, is invaluable. Found stuff in here I never thought possible. I hope some of the car magazine editors find this and do some current research and publishing. With the current price of fuel, maybe it is a 6's time to reassert itself and find new and practical application.
