Increase Efficiency of Vital Components
In the interest of cost savings and rapid production, manufacturers build engines to fall within a wide set of standards and specifications, often falling short of the original design. Cheap and fast engine production results in a sloppy final product. This is not ideal for high-performance engines. To maximise the performance of any engine, it must be balanced and blueprinted to exact tolerances. Four-cylinder, V-8, American or Import, the performance of all engines is greatly improved by balancing and blueprinting. Dedicated enthusiasts and professional racers balance and blueprint their engines to produce more horsepower and more torque, to become more fuel efficient, run cooler and last longer.
Expert engine builder and veteran author, Mike Mavrigian, provides an unprecedented level of detail and instruction on the process of balancing and blueprinting. your engines. He carefully takes you through the procedures of measuring, adjusting, machining and fitting each part together with precision tolerances, optimizing design, and maximizing performance. He covers the block, crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, cylinder heads, intake manifolds, camshaft, measuring tools and final assembly techniques.
For more than 50 years, balancing and blueprinting has been an accepted and common practice for maximizing performance. An enthusiast or professional who invests the time to precisely build an engine will be rewarded with an engine that will run strong and last for years.
