The Goodwrench Quest

In September 1999, the magazine, "Chevy High Performance" began a series of articles that described their process of experimenting with the Chevy Goodwrench 350 crate motor.

These articles, written by Jeff Smith, provide valuable insight into the process of adding horsepower to the relatively inexpensive crate motor.
