        exactly, the book is available in English. It's not cheap but definitely worth, especially when you have a 4-cam and want to work on it yourself

          Peter Pohl's book is really worth to be part of every 4cam
          enthusiast's literature collection.
          Peter Pohl started in the 80's with the reproduction of a complete
          4cam engine for his 356 Carrera.
          He couldn't find an original Carrera engine in those days,
          so he thought "why not DIY?"
          He did the castings of the crankcase as well as the heads,
          which took a lot of hours and what finally came out was a very reliable engine with some useful internal modifications.
          Since then Peter worked on many carrera engines and is a well-known expert for these beauties.
          The photo below show him in the cellar of his house with a brand new 4cam engine, this one has a special setup with longer intake manifolds, 1750cc and a lot of torque.
          I manufactured the complete sheet metal set for that engine.
          It's always a fun to work with Peter Pohl, he knows so much
          and is such an uncomplicated person.
          You should buy the book
          btw., I do also have it available

            Words fail me. The photograph of Peter Pohl with his engine is truly astonishing and demonstrable of his incredible talents. as we all know,just working on these engines requires a Master's Hand. The creation of the parts from scratch is something that I find to be so incredible and truly stunning that I am anxious to have his book in my hands.

              Hey Rickie,
              another masterpiece from the Peter Pohl cellar,
              his STEYR-PUCH, the red car in the background on the next photo:

              He bought the car new in the 60's.
              It has the Fiat 500 body and the original engine is a small boxer with 650cc and 27 HP or so.
              Peter Pohl tuned it as much as possible but realized quick that the engine was to weak for that...
              After several probs he "redesigned it a little bit" with a new and stronger crankcase, stronger crank, 1000cc, 911 cylinder heads and finally roundabout 90HP which let that little beast run 200km/h.
              It is still in his collection and Peter uses the car regularly on normal streets even for longer distances and it is very reliable.
