Performance Automotive Engine Math


Performance Automotive Engine Math walks readers through the complete engine, showcasing the methodology required to define each specific parameter, and how to translate the engineering math to hard measurements reflected in various engine parts. 


High performance racing engines differ from their street based counterparts in many ways, but what specific internal design differences separate them? One answer lies in the math used to develop the best possible performing powerplants for racing use.  When engineered for maximum effectiveness and durability at high power levels and extreme RPM, performance engines of all types need to be built as a complete system.  The sizes, clearances, and capabilities of these intricate machines are not chosen by chance, but rather through the use of proven formulas.

In this book you'll find these formulas and the logic behind them. Everything from figuring out the engine's true displacement and compression ratio to determining the best possible port size and camshaft dimensions are included.  Whether your a seasoned professional or a curious amateur, Performance Automotive Engine Math is a valuable learning guide and reference tool. Determining the best way to achieve high volumetric efficiency is the goal of all performance enthusiasts, and this book shows you exactly how to accomplish this, by the numbers.
