How to Build High-Performance Chevy LS1 / LS6 V-8s - Modifying and Tuning Gen III Engines
de Will Handzel (Auteur)
In 1997 Chevrolet did the unthinkable: it re-designed the most popular and most modified engine in American history. The Chevrolet small-block V-8 made its debut in 1955, and with its arrival, Chevrolet instantly leaped to the forefront in the minds of hot rodders and performance enthusiasts alike. While the engine grew in displacement and technology over the next 30 years, its basic design remained unchanged...until 1997, when the Generation III LS1/LS6 engine design was introduced. The LS1 engine first appeared in the 1997 Corvette, and soon followed in the Camaro, Firebird, and thousands of full-size Chevy trucks and SUVs.
This book is essential for the enthusiast who wants to get the most performance out of this engine design but is only familiar with the older Chevy small-blocks. Along with full-color photos, this book includes everything you need to know about these engines, including the difficult engine removal and installation, simple engine bolt-ons, electronic controls for the Generation III engine, and detailed engine builds at four different power levels.
The GM LS-Series V-8s are easily the most popular engines in the aftermarket right now. They have proven to be full of power potential and are readily available in either new or used condition in a wide range of displacements. Choosing the best-possible cylinder head to match the rest of the package is key to making any LS-based project engine perform to its highest potential.
This book reviews every readily available factory and aftermarket cylinder head designed for GM LS-Series engines, and delivers the facts about each in an easily comparable format. It includes the basic dimensions of each head, along with their claimed airflow rates. Also included is information on interchangeability, combustion chamber sizes, compression ratios, applications, performance characteristics, helpful tips, and even a chapter on intakes.
The GM LS-Series engines produce copious amounts of horsepower and do it very efficiently, and therefore they have been installed in many GM cars as well as transplanted into hot rods and multitudes of muscle cars. These wildly popular engines have been modified in many ways, and one of the most popular and affordable modifications is stroking an LS engine. By adding more cubic inches, these engines are producing exceptional horsepower and torque.
Author Stephen Kim covers the various models of LS engines, so if you're buying an engine you are able to select the best stroker platform. He also guides you through each crucial step of building a stroker or big-inch LS engine. He starts by discussing the stroker options, the maximum stroke and bore for aluminum as well as iron block engines, and the best cranks, rods, and pistons from various aftermarket suppliers. The budding LS engine builder is then able to select parts or the stroker kit that best fits the particular motor and the budget. Kim delves into the benefits and drawbacks to stroking the range of LS aluminum and iron block motors. But, he also examines the aftermarket blocks from World, Dart, and GM Performance Parts for stroking.
This is a detailed guide on how to install GM's popular LS small-block engines into just about any other vehicle, the most popular conversion in the aftermarket today. Includes an overview of the Chevy LS series engine, technical details on swapping transmissions, drivetrain, fuel system, wiring and ECU, exhaust and installation.
Describes LS engine swaps for muscle cars, street rods, imports, and late-model cars and trucks.

How to Use and Upgrade to GM Gen III LS-Series Powertrain Control Systems
de Mike Noonan (Auteur)
In this book the benefits, advantages and nuances of the robust and efficient GM Gen III LS-Series Powertrain Control System are thoroughly examined. Do you have a vehicle already equipped with an LS Series engine but want to do a transmission swap? Do you want to convert from a cable throttle to an electronic throttle, and make systems like cruise control integrate? Do you want to eliminate the dreaded Optispark distributor from your LT1/LT4? Perhaps convert your Gen I small-block to distributor-less ignition? Or convert to universal OBD-II diagnostics? Do you want an affordable control system to run fuel injection, ignition timing, cooling fans, air conditioning, and electronic overdrive transmissions while swapping all if this into your classic muscle car?
"How to Use and Upgrade to GM Gen III LS-Series Powertrain Control Systems" will cover all of these applications and more. Not only are the performance and flexibility aspects covered in great detail, but there are significant cost benefits as well. Implementing a GM Series III PCM based control system will not only afford you great flexibility and tune-ability, but it can be accomplished significantly cheaper than most aftermarket alternatives. If you are planning any of these complex swaps or just looking to thoroughly understand the nuances of modern GM control systems, this book is a vital addition to your technical library.
Applications: - LS Series engines - Small-Block Chevy - LT1 and LT4 engines - 1996-newer Big-Block Chevy - 4.3 L V-6 Chevy.
