Nick Swager popped into Veloce House late last year and we grabbed a few minutes with him talking about his new book Secrets of Speed - Today’s techniques for 4-stroke engine blueprinting & tuning. Here's the result!

The process of building 4-stroke engines to a professional standard, from selecting materials and planning work, right through to methods of final assembly and testing, written for the DIY engine builder in an
easy-to-understand style, and supported by approximately 200 photographs and original drawings. Containing five engine inspection and build sheets, and the contact details of approximately 45 specialist manufacturers and motorsport suppliers, the book explains build methods common to all 4-stroke engines, rather than specific makes or models. An essential purchase for all engine-building enthusiasts. More info.
