Have you been bitten by the big-cube bug? The quest for big cubes doesn't have to lead to a big-block anymore. Now you can easily add cubic inches to your current power plant without having to swap intakes, headers, motor mounts, and other accessories all at once.

By building a big-cube small-block, you can have all the additional torque and horsepower of a big-block, without all the extra weight, expense, and effort. In this all-new color edition, Graham Hansen takes a step-by-step approach to selecting the best OEM or aftermarket block, crank, rods, and pistons to construct your big-inch short block. He also discusses how to select the best heads, cam, induction, and exhaust systems specifically for a big-inch engine. In addition, the final chapter includes seven different combinations for big-inch power, complete with dyno graphs!

It doesn't even make sense anymore to heavily modify your small-block without increasing displacement. Kits are affordable, and with the information in this book, easy as well. Join the revolution and build your big-inch small-block today!
