One of the books that really showed me a lot early in my hot rod hobby was " How to Hot Rod the Small Block Chevy". I't's out of print, but still can be found on Amazon or Ebay. The publisher is HP Books.

David Vizard is a good read. He backs up what he says with dyno tests.....

Vizard writes both ways, generic and model specific. I don't know if he's done anything on the BBC because I'm not interested in BB Chevys, so I only read the small block and generic stuff. Read the reviews.......

S-A Designs "How to Build BIG-INCH CHEVY SMALL BLOCKS" is a good one. It is geared toward building 383 or larger SBC's but there is a ton of good info that would apply just as well to the smaller versions.
