How to Build and Modify GM LS-Series Engines

Author: Joseph Potak

GM's LS1 engine shook the performance world when it was introduced in the 1997 Corvette. It set a new precedent for massive power, light weight, and impressive fuel economy.

The latest version, the LS9, makes some 638 horsepower from just 6.2 liters, far eclipsing even the mightiest big-blocks from the muscle car era. And it does so while meeting modern emissions requirements and delivering respectable fuel economy.

With these credentials, it is no wonder that the LS-series engines are among the most popular engines for high-performance applications.

How to Build and Modify GM LS-Series Engines shows what modifications are needed to achieve any performance goal you desire. Topics include block selection and modifications, crankshaft and piston assemblies, cylinder heads, camshafts, valve train, intake manifolds, fuel system, and header selection.

Softbound 176 Pages, Hundreds of Color Photos. Measures 8.5" x 11".
