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.
The ideal guide to modifying Datsun/Nissan engines. Mar 29, 2006
I have a few books by this author Tom Monroe.His books are very thorough.His books are written in simple terms and easy to understand.If you are looking for a book to modify your Datsun/Nissan engines then this book is the ideal book.I also recommend his other book on rebuilding Datsun/Nissan engines.These 2 books should go together.
Great book - just doesn't cover Z24 as much as L-series Jul 21, 2001
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.
Excellent for your street aplications. Oct 10, 2000
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.
Modifying your Datsun OHC engine -- an excellent guide! Aug 7, 2000
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!
