The fastest racers don't win with guesswork. They plan their work and work their plan before they buy a single part or tighten a single bolt--and so should you. If you're building an engine or doing your own tuning, to be competitive you need a thorough understanding of the key power producing factors. And knowing how to calculate critical values will take the guess work out of engine modifications and tuning, saving you time and money. The V-Twin Tuner's Handbook, Volume One provides you the pro secrets needed to stay ahead of the competition.
Explained and illustrated are simple equations needed to optimize your V-Twin's performance. You'll find equations for calculating horsepower, torque, bore and stroke, displacements, compression ratios, airflow, gearing, shift points, cam specs, E.T., MPH, intake and exhaust tract tuning, tuning factors, and much more! Also presented are practical engine design theory and tuning secrets that will give you a deeper understanding of torque and horsepower, compression ratios, rod lengths, piston acceleration and speed, engine efficiency factors, airflow requirements, performance gearing, performance prediction, tuning for weather, aerodynamics, and vacuum and pressure. The book is also jam-packed with over 70 handy reference and conversion tables containing crankcase specifications, engine displacements, compression ratios, gear ratios, quarter mile speeds, flowbench airflow conversions, relative air densities, jetting corrections, gasoline densities, tuning tips, decimal to metric equivalents, and electrical systems, just to name a few. There's even a section devoted to timesaving conversion factors.
Eliminate the guesswork and maximize performance when planning, designing and building your engine, and tune your bike like the pros. The V-Twin Tuner's Handbook, Volume One is an essential resource for all street rodders, racers, engine builders, tuners and automotive enthusiasts, and the ideal companion to The Big Twin High-Performance Guide.
