Smokey Yunick's Power Secrets is a unique milestone from the acknowledged master of no-nonsense engine development. Henry "Smokey" Yunick was a legend in racing circles, and in this book he explains race-engine preparation in the direct and unrelenting style that was his singular trademark. From carburetors to shop tools, Smokey told it like it was. This book is a once-in-a-lifetime experience; a classic that you'll enjoy reading again and again.
Carbon Press- the publishing company Smokey started to publish his autobiography recently received the publishing rights to Smokey's most famous title. During its run with SA Design, it was reprinted at least 19 times. Originally published in 1983, many still consider it the racer's bible for getting more power from a small block Chevy.
Since we had to start from scratch to rebuild the printing files, we decided to make it a little more shop friendly. We are binding it with a comb binding so it will lay flat on the fender or workbench. We are leaving space on the margins and in each chapter to make notes. But through it all, we didn't change a word of Smokey's original text or images - it's still the same book that thousands of racers have relied on to win on the weekends.
