To extract maximum performance, an engine needs an efficient, well-designed, and properly tuned exhaust system. In fact, the exhaust system's design, components, and materials have a large impact on the overall performance of the engine. Engine builders and car owners need to carefully consider the exhaust layout, select the parts, and fabricate the exhaust system that delivers the best performance for car and particular application. Master engine builder and award-winning writer Mike Mavrigian explains exhaust system principles, function, and components in clear and concise language. He then details how to design, fabricate, and fit exhaust systems to classic street cars as well as for special and racing applications. Air/exhaust-gas flow dynamics and exhaust system design are explained. Cam duration and overlap are also analyzed to determine how an engine breathes in air/fuel, as the exhaust must efficiently manage this burned mixture. Pipe bending is a science as well as art and you’re shown how to effectively crush and mandrel bend exhaust pipe to fit your header/manifold and chassis combination. Header tube diameter and length is taken into account, as well as the most efficient catalytic converters and resonators for achieving your performance goals. In addition, Mavrigian covers the special exhaust system requirements for supercharged and turbocharged systems. When building a high-performance engine, you need a high-performance exhaust system that’s tuned and fitted to that engine so you can realize maximum performance. This comprehensive book is your guide to achieving ultimate exhaust system performance. It shows you how to fabricate a system for custom applications and to fit the correct prefabricated system to your car. No other book on the market is solely dedicated to fabricating and fitting an exhaust system in high-performance applications.

Over the last 40 years, millions of Chrysler, AMC, and Jeep vehicles have used these differentials, propelling these high-performance vehicles to victory on the street, in drag racing, and other applications. Chrysler used the Dana 60 and BorgWarner Sure-Grip high-performance differentials in the Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, Super Bee and many other renowned Chrysler muscle cars. These differentials have been tied to historic powerhouse engines, such as the Chrysler Magnum and Hemi V8s in stock car, drag racing, and other forms of racing, making history in the process. Jeep CJs and Cherokees have used the Dana 44 and AMC 20 and put these differentials under tremendous loads, which often requires frequent rebuilds. After years of use, these differentials require rebuilding, and of course aftermarket suppliers offer ring and pinion and other parts to upgrade these axles. In this Workbench series title, the focus is on the disassembly, inspection and step-by-step rebuild of the most popular high-performance differentials. Axles and differentials are not incredibly complex components, but there are some specific steps to follow for rebuilding, upgrading, and setting them up properly, and this book demystifies the process and explains it in detail. A book dedicated to the Dana, Sure-Grip, and AMC Jeep axles has never been published before, and Mopar, Jeep and AMC enthusiasts are hungry for this information. The Dana and AMC axles should remain in wide use into the foreseeable future, and therefore there will be a consistent demand for this information. This book will also feature extensive gear and application charts, so the reader is sure to select the correct gear ratio for a particular vehicle and application. Special coverage is therefore dedicated to ring and pinion gears. In addition selecting the best aftermarket and production axle shafts is covered as well as modifying and upgrading the differential housings.

Introduced in 1997, the GM LS engine has become the dominant V-8 engine in GM vehicles and a top-selling high-performance crate engine. GM has released a wide range of Gen III and IV LS engines that deliver spectacular efficiency and performance. These compact, lightweight, cutting-edge pushrod V-8 engines have become affordable and readily obtainable from a variety of sources. In the process, the LS engine has become the most popular V-8 engine to swap into many American and foreign muscle cars, sports cars, trucks, and passenger cars. To select the best engine for an LS engine swap, you need to carefully consider the application. Veteran author and LS engine swap master Jefferson Bryant reveals all the criteria to consider when choosing an LS engine for a swap project. You are guided through selecting or fabricating motor mounts for the project. Positioning the LS engine in the engine compartment and packaging its equipment is a crucial part of the swap process, which is comprehensively covered. As part of the installation, you need to choose a transmission crossmember that fits the engine and vehicle as well as selecting an oil pan that has the correct profile for the crossmember with adequate ground clearance. Often the brake booster, steering shaft, accessory pulleys, and the exhaust system present clearance challenges, so this book offers you the best options and solutions. In addition, adapting the computer-control system to the wiring harness and vehicle is a crucial aspect for completing the installation, which is thoroughly detailed. As an all-new edition of the original top-selling title, LS Swaps: How to Swap GM LS Engines into Almost Anything covers the right way to do a spectrum of swaps. So, pick up this guide, select your ride, and get started on your next exciting project.

The Muncie 4-speeds, M20, M21, and M22 are some of the most popular manual transmissions ever made and continue to be incredibly popular. The Muncie was the top high-performance manual transmission GM offered in its muscle cars of the 60s and early 70s. It was installed in the Camaro, Chevelle, Buick GS, Pontiac GTO, Olds Cutlass, and many other classic cars. Many owners want to retain the original transmission in their classic cars to maintain its value. Transmission expert and veteran author Paul Cangialosi has created an indispensible reference to Muncie 4-speeds that guides you through each crucial stage of the rebuild process. Comprehensive ID information is provided, so you can positively identify the cases, shafts, and related parts. It discusses available models, parts options, and gearbox cases. Most important, it shows how to completely disassemble the gearbox, identify wear and damage, select the best parts, and complete the rebuild. It also explains how to choose the ideal gear ratio for a particular application. Various high-performance and racing setups are also shown, including essential modifications, gun drilling the shafts, cutting down the gears to remove weight, and achieving race-specific clearances. Muncie 4-speeds need rebuilding after many miles of service and extreme use. In addition, when a muscle car owner builds a high-performance engine that far exceeds stock horsepower, a stronger high-performance transmission must be built to accommodate this torque and horsepower increase. No other book goes into this much detail on the identification of the Muncie 4-speed, available parts, selection of gear ratios, and the rebuild process.

The GM LS engine has revolutionized the muscle car and the high-performance V-8 market. It has become a favorite engine to swap into classic cars because it offers a superior combination of horsepower, torque, and responsiveness in a compact package. As such, these modern pushrod V-8 engines are installed in vintage GM muscle cars with relative ease, and that includes Chevelles and other popular GM A-Body cars. In fact, General Motors manufactured about 500,000 Chevelles and A-Body cars between 1968 and 1970 alone. Jefferson Bryant, author of LS Swaps: How To Swap GM LS Engines into Almost Anything, has performed many LS swaps throughout his career, and has transplanted the LS into several A-Body cars. In this comprehensive guide, he provides detailed step-by-step instructions for installing an LS powerplant into a Chevelle, Buick GS, Oldsmobile Cutlass, and Pontiac GTO. To successfully install an LS engine, you need to select or fabricate motor mounts and adapter plates to mount the engine to the chassis. Also, you need to integrate the electronic engine controls and wiring harness to the A-Body car. If you run a fuel-injection system, a new tank or high-pressure fuel pump, fuel lines, and related equipment must be installed. Bryant covers all of these crucial steps and much more. He explains essential procedures, time saving techniques, and solutions to common problems. In addition, he performs a new LT swap into an A-Body car. Swapping an LS engine into an A-Body is made much easier with a comprehensive guidebook such as this, whether you plan on doing it yourself or decide to have a shop do it for you. A huge and thriving aftermarket provides a wide range of suspension, brake, steering, chassis, and other parts that produce functional improvements. Before you tackle your LS Swap project, arm yourself with this vital information to guide you through the process. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Arial}

Rasant, urkomisch und bitterböse. Vladimir Girshkin wurde in Leningrad geboren, mit zwölf kam er nach New York. Jetzt ist er 25 und fragt sich, ob sein Job im Emma-Lazarus-Verein zur Förderung der Einwandererintegration tatsächlich das Ziel all seiner Anpassungsstrategien gewesen sein soll. Jedenfalls will er endlich zu Geld kommen. Was liegt da näher, als bei der Russenmafia einzusteigen? Vladimir verlässt New York und stürzt sich in eine aberwitzige Blitzkarriere in Prawa, der Hauptstadt des Wilden Ostens. Schon bald scheint sich die amerikanische Tellerwäscherlegende für ihn zu erfüllen, doch dann geraten die Alte und die Neue Welt bedrohlich ins Wanken ... «Ein anarchischer Lesespaß, ein gnadenlos boshaftes Feuerwerk von Sprüchen und Pointen, Einfällen und Einsichten.» (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) «Gary Shteyngart ist ein virtuoser Geschichtenerzähler.» (The New York Times) «Western aus dem Wilden Osten: Gary Shteyngarts russisch-amerikanischer Roman ist klug und kurzweilig.» (Die ZEIT) «Ein gewitzter Kommentar auf die Ostblocknostalgie.» (Süddeutsche Zeitung) «Eine verführerische Mischung aus wohl überlegten Kalauern und historischen Anspielungen, identitätspolitischen Volten und zynischen Randbemerkungen.» (taz)
