This book gives you good direction on what to expect if you desire to make these mods to your car. It tells you what is good and what won't last under heavy boost - 20# or more. The book categorizes the G.M. head selection as to what works with a different combination. Well worth the money spent for good solid advice to novice builders. The book also has enough information to hold the interest of an experienced builder. A lot of good "how to" stuff everyone should find interesting to read. I'm glad I bought this book, and am reading it a 2nd time to burn in the details.

Stellar book for mid-level information. You won't be able to immediately build a turbo kit after reading it, but it gives you the info needed to take the next step and learn to build a complete system
