Publisher Description

In GM LS-Series Engines: The Complete Swap Manual, expert Joseph Potak walks you through all the steps involved in installing an LS engine into any vehicle, from concept to completion.

Variants of GM’s groundbreaking family of LS engines are installed in everything from the company’s most mundane panel vans to its earth-shaking Corvette ZR1. First underhood in the 1997 Corvette, the LS1, and its successors have proven powerful, reliable, and amazingly fuel efficient. Since that time, more than a dozen variants have been produced, ranging from bulletproof, iron-block 4.8-liter workhorses to the supercharged 7.0-liter LS7.

Performance enthusiasts have embraced this remarkable V-8, and it has quickly become a favorite for engine swaps. Why? Because the versatile engine offers fantastic power, a compact design, and light weight, and it responds very well to performance modifications. The key to this performance is a sophisticated electronics package that can intimidate even the most adventurous hot rodder.
