Covers parts of performance engine rebuilding not covered in basic rebuilding books. I would not recommend for a absolute beginner, but I found it to be interesting reading even though I rarely rebuild. If you are just learing get How To Rebuild Your Nissan OHC also (Book Number 1555611591). This is a must have book for anyone interested in Nissan/Datsun Z series cars but also covers other Nissan OHC engines.

My friend has this book, and I've looked it over a few times. It is an excellent guide, a must for the performance engine builder! It shows everything from heads, how to weld them, straighten them, even port and polish them, to bottom end work such as balancing, which rods to use, what pistons you should use for a particular application, even shows how to use a welder and a milling machine to match the top of the piston to the combustion chamber for high compression! If you want to performance-build your Datsun/Nissan engine, this is the book for you!

This book is great for the serious do-it-yourselfer. If you know how rebuild your engine, you'll have no problems. It gives recommendations from the experts and simplifies it for you, and eliminates the hassle and expense of experimenting. Get it, it's an excellent reference if you're already in the business.

I liked this book simply because it's gonna answer many questions and give much help to anyone with a 70's or '80's z-car or truck. I have a 720 pickup with the Z24 motor. It is in the list, however it is not touched upon as much as the L-series inline 6 and 4 cylinders.

This manual is essential for anyone interested in modifying these engines. There are many little gems of information in the book it would take years of experimenting to discover. Mr. Honsowetz has done a fabulous job of gathering and arranging this data in a very user-friendly way. I wouldn't be without this valuable tool, and recommend it highly.

How To Modify Your Nissan/Datsun OHC Engine was recommended to me when I my husband and I bought my 1968 510 Datsun SCCA race car. The instructions for performing various disassembly/assembly tasks are clear, with a complete parts break-out for every task covered.

This is the only Datsun modification book we own, and I can't imagine needing any other one.

Information is broken down into engine components, and each component has recommendations for street/double-duty/race applications, with the pros and cons of each approach laid out in plain English. If you own a Datsun or early i6 (or i4) Nissan, this is a must-have.
