“Shawn has taken 20 years of tuning experience and countless hours of dynometer research and combined it ito an e-book that is concise, easy to read and gets right to the point.
He recently worked with Lingenfelter Corvettes, STS Turbos and Comp Cams on the build of a 1,000 Hp Twin-Turbo, LS3 Corvette. He’s custom built and tuned many Holley and Demon carbureted small block Chevy street engines in the 500 Hp range.
His knowledge of the correct air/fuel ratio needed under different load conditions and rpm was immediately apparent in the fine-tuning of an 850 Hp, Twin-Turbo LS6 Corvette and 625 Hp Supercharged Corvette we did in the summer of 2008 and again in the set up and tuning of an 11 second, Holley carbureted, small block Chevelle in the fall of 2009.“

“I never could quite figure out why my idle screws didn’t seem to do anything when I adjusted them. This book spelled out exactly what was happening and the pictures made it easy to undertand and fix”.
-Jeff W, Nevada
“Wow! This is clear and concise, spot on from top to bottom. Man, am I glad to see this level of understanding coupled with the ability to put it into words. Thank you!”

“I have a pretty big cam in my engine and the idle was always running rich. The low speed performance was sluggish to say the least. I found your section on Holley carbs to be extremely helpful and the changes I made have made a big difference. It idles much better now and it doesn’t hesitate anymore at low speeds”.
-Kelly S., Colorado
“My carb always seemed to run really well, but I could never get any decent mileage and the exhaust burned my eyes. After reading this book I was able to set my jets and idle screws to where it no longer burned my eyes. I have better gas mileage now and I can really feel the difference in the power!”
-Dale M., California
“Ok…I’ve written numerous technical manuals over the last 25 years and I like it and I like the pictures to illustrate things rather than drawings. I like the ‘conversational tone’ to how its written…like we are just hanging out in the garage doing this stuff…the info comes off as ‘shared’, not like the wise old sage is granting you a nugget of wisdom. I’m impressed!”
-Scott T., Idaho
“One of my fears was that actually getting into the guts of the carburetor and trying to figure out what did what would be pretty difficult. Well, it runs better now than I had ever hoped. I really like your method and it was much easier than I thought.”
