Independent Reviews

'... an excellent practical guide to what is often regarded as something of a ‘black art’ in the field of engine building ... While a certain amount of information on camshafts, fuel supply, exhaust and ignition systems is given, more detailed coverage of these areas is available in other SpeedPro publications, but as a guide purely to what is required to get the best out of your cylinder head, whether new or secondhand, this book should be alongside them on your shelves ...'
Speedscene

'In the sixty odd years I have been involved in motor sport this must have been one of the most widely read subjects with lots of books and magazine articles on the subject but I can honestly say this latest offering from the publishing house of Veloce is one of the best.'
Motor Cycling Club (MCC)
