good engine building books?

I have been out of motor building for about 20 years. There is ALOT that I forgot. Does anyone have any recommendation for some good engine building books? I'm looking for books that describe the details for building a high performance build (mainly chevy small blocks), Links would be great... maybe some reference books you guys go to, or useful formulas, etc... Something that explains matching heads with cams, intake, etc. Proper springs to use with the cam, just all the little details that have to be taken into account when building a motor...

Get David Vizard's "How To Build Max-Perf Chevy Small Blocks On A Budget" if you are into SBC's. Tons of details in it.

All of Vizard's books are quite good.

The "CarTech" series by SA Designs is pretty good. Much more updated than the old "How to Hot Rod" books...
