Needs much more information on tuning Feb 6, 2007
I'm a big fan of Des Hammill having bought 6 of his other books so I was a bit suprised to find this only deals with using standard parts, apart from briefly mentioning Holley carbs there is no mention or suggestion of using performance parts and their likely effects on output.
A nice history of the engine but other than telling you to use the best of the standard parts which I would have thought was obvious anyway there is a real lack of information on upgrades. Doesn't even mention the GT40 crate engine or the ally heads which I would think lots of people will be starting with as a base
Considering the title of the book and the picture on the cover I would imagine lots of people would buy it as I did for info on tuning and upgrades.
You will be disappointed I'm afraid it doesn't talk about them at all!
If anybody knows a good performance tuning manual for the 302 please let me know!
