Peter Burgess runs a well-known tuning business in Derbyshire, England. He's been working with MGBs since 1978 and his engine building expertise has produced many race wins for MGBs. He has also written another book in Veloce's SpeedPro series: How To Build, Modify & Power Tune Cylinder Heads.
In the original edition of How to Power Tune MGB 4-Cylinder
Engines, Peter Burgess produced what is arguably the most
comprehensive book ever written on MGB cylinder heads. I didn't
think he could expand on that topic, but I was wrong ... If you
want to get more power out of your MGB, you need to read this book.
- MGB Driver
Tells you just about everything you need to know ... focuses on the heart of the MGB - the B-Series engine - and covers in detail just about every possible modification that can be made to the powerplant to extract maximum horsepower. Many of the modifications are fairly obvious, like polishing and porting the cylinder head or fitting a performance exhaust system and tubular manifold to improve gas flow, but the author also goes on to reveal those little gems of wisdom which only come with years of experience ... This is a great book if you are serious about tuning your MGB for track use, but many of the ideas can be used to get a little extra performance out of a road car, and that's never a bad thing! - Classic Performance & Retro Monthly
