Reviews - What do customers think about How to Build, Modify & Power Tune Cylinder Heads?

pretty good stuff  Mar 10, 2008
The porting info in this book is not as detailed as in A.Graham Bells 4 stroke performance tuning book but what it lacks in info it more than makes up for in pertinent pictures and this book also does a very good job of explaining how and why certain things need to be done. This is a fine book for anyone who wants to tinker with their heads for the first time. The equipment needed section is excellent and a quick google search found the needed stuff at very reasonable prices. Good job Burgess.
The experienced engine builder need not buy this book  Mar 27, 2007
Not much new information unless you are a novice.
Great Book  Jan 28, 2006
This book is full of useful info. Lot of detail. I recommend this book. Well worth the money.
Very good book for beginners  Jul 5, 2005
This book provides good information for anyone looking to modify automotive cylinder heads to gain power. It is very well written and covers everything from valve grind and port work to cam degreeing and lift. Most of the information is applicable to any 4-stroke engine, and very few "engine specific" (and hence mostly useless) bits of information are included. Well worth the money.
Made in England  Aug 8, 2002
This book is from England, and although it's easy enough to read, there are no pictures or facts pertaining to American engines. Also, not enough or correct information is given concerning porting.
