Reviews - What do customers think about Chevrolet Inline Six-Cylinder Power Manual?
Old school still throbs. Aug 14, 2008
Where was this when I was 16 with my version of a hopped up Chev 235? Now I want another one! Could use more technical and current resources for "inliners" to chew on. What there is, is invaluable. Found stuff in here I never thought possible. I hope some of the car magazine editors find this and do some current research and publishing. With the current price of fuel, maybe it is a 6's time to reassert itself and find new and practical application.
Good Book May 9, 2008
I was looking for a simple rebuild manual for this series of GM I6 motors. Since this is the only thing close that's available, I bought it. I'm only restoring my engine, but if you want to hot rod your motor, this has some great info and tips. Even if you're like me and only interested in restoration, it's better to overshoot when it comes to knowledge.
Great How to Book Apr 21, 2008
This book is hands down the best book I have read about the Chevrolet 6cyl. It gives very in depth explinations of how to achieve excellent power and/or performance out of your 6cyl.

Chevrolet Inline Six-Cylinder Power Manual Dec 18, 2007
Chevrolet Inline Six-Cylinder Power Manual This is possibly the most incredible well written and informative engine performance book ever written. It's not just that I am smitten by the late model Chevrolet Inline Six Cylinder motors. No they are a mere testament to perfection. Ask anyone who has driven a car with these engines and they simply last forever. But I digress, what Mr. Santucci has done here is assemble and share his most comprehensive insiders knowledge to building these outstanding American engines into true performance overachievers! He also details everyone in America who specializes in building this inline six and gives the novice many tips on durability and general performance. Outstanding and if I may say "The Bible" of the Chevrolet L6 Engine!!
