Race Engine Building Techniques cover topics that would fall outside a normal engine build, but are standard practice for builders who are preparing performance engines. Race Engine Building Techniques are often lengthy in discussion and can span several pages at a time. Examples of these techniques covered in the book include: Setting and Checking Port Timing, Checking Compression Ratio, and Checking Squish Clearance.
Technical Takeaways are sub-sections that detail the how and why behind specific engine building techniques as well as highlight the appropriate procedure for the given task. Technical Takeaways are often used to introduce repeated tasks once so that they can quickly be referenced later. Examples of Technical Takeaways include: Installing/removing bearings, tightening sequences, and retaining ring installation.
Hot-Tips are quick blurbs that fall outside the normal discussion, but can add incredible value depending on the user's specific situation. Hot-Tips also serve as a way to communicate friendly reminders of things to double check or do prior to proceeding on with the build.
