Format: Paperback
Chuck Senatore's new book on building high performance Mopar B & RB motors is well-written, with excellent tips and advice for the hands-on home builder, or the professional engine builder. His experience with building Mopars, and with helping to develop his company, Muscle Motors, into a respected authority on Mopar engines, is evident throughout. While this is not a step-by-step engine building guide, it provides background for all the decisions that must be made before one begins the building process. Particularly valuable is the discussion on developing a plan and purpose for the motor you want to build, before starting. The only criticism I have of his information is that it seemed he gave short shrift to head porting, and hydraulic cam choices. Though home head porting is one of the hottest, and simplest, mods a competent novice can perform, Mr. Senatore devoted less than a page to the actual process, and recommended the novice leave this job to a machine shop pro. Little more time is spent in the discussion of hydraulic cam choices for hot street performance, even though this is the major growth and interest area for Saturday night street cruisers which see little actual strip action. For the person who is interested in these areas, there are pleaty of information sources elsewhere, and I still believe that this book is a must for any person who is considering building a B/RB motor, regardless of their level of experience. Good job, Mr. Senatore!

You will probably learn a lot! March 8 2007
By 1970 Charger 500 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First, I own many books viewed as competitors or complements to this book. This however is my favorite so far.

Why? Well to start with the information tends to be an excellent blend of general how and why the individual engine components work and the effect they have in contributing to the overall performance and attitude of the engine you are building. The book really comes through with some very specific recommendations on part and process selections. The author authoritatively speaks to some of the well-earned reputation, legend and mythology of the mighty big-block Mopar engine family.

The book guides the reader through, not merely choosing between stock or all-out-race, but acknowledges the deisre of most enthusiasts to be somewhere in between.

inaccuracies.. typos? Nov. 14 2012
By J. Bittinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is a lot of good info in this book. There are a few inaccuracies also, which could be attributed to simple typographical errors or a lack of proof reading before printing. It's a shame, because there IS a wealth of information here. The problem is, in my mind, it's been relegated to the "can't be trusted" category. Great informational reading if you already know what information is correct and what's not. ..and if you do, why are you reading this book? I wouldn't base an engine build off of this book.

Big-Block Mopar Performance: High Performance and Racing Modifications for B and Rb Series Engines Sept. 29 2005
By vegli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
lots of info and history of the engines. Also gets onto the the area of what is best of MOPAR and aftermarket equipment.
A must read for anyone building a B or RB engine Jan. 18 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am building a BB Mopar for bracket racing - I found this book very informative. Mr. Senatore shares his years of practical experience building these engines. Geared mainly towards drag/bracket racing but also applicable to high performance street. He gives some history of the engine design and explains in depth details of each engine component - block, crank, oiling system. etc.
I recomend this book for anyone who is building a BB Mopar engine or wants to learn about the details of these engines.

Enjoy!
