9781932494815: How to Swap GM LS-Series Engines into Almost Anything (S-A Design)

In 1997, the LS1-powered Corvette hit the streets. At the time, the new LS1 garnered much fanfare, but in reality, its release marked a seismic advance in V-8 engine technology that ushered in a new era of performance. The LS1, featuring ground-breaking architecture, was the first of the third generation of LS engines, which delivered towering performance and efficiency from its compact design. High-performance enthusiasts quickly gravitated to the wide range of Gen III and IV LS engines that followed, and these engines were transplanted into hot rods, muscle cars, sports cars, and many other vehicles.
How to Swap GM LS-Series Engines into Almost Anything shows how to fit these powerhouse engines into popular GM
F-Body cars, such as the Camaro and Firebird, and also how to install these powerplants into non-GM muscle cars, sports cars, trucks, and of course, hot rods. This book includes a historical review, complete specs, and detailed information so you can select and fit the best LS engine for a particular vehicle and application. A section on mounting kits, explaining how to install these engines into a variety of cars using readily available motor mount kits, universal engine mounts, or fabricated mounts. In addition, the book shows you how to perform necessary oil-pan modifications and adapt accessory drivers as well as choose the most suitable fuel pump, exhaust system, wiring harness, and electronic control module. This guide takes it a step further, revealing how to select the best reprogramming equipment and software for a vehicle and its application. Finally, the book covers the range of compatible transmissions for LS engines.
How to Swap GM LS-Series Engines into Almost Anything is your complete guide for swapping the legendary GM LS Gen III and IV engines into any vehicle and creating a truly unique ride.

Review:

For those looking for more info on popular Chevy LS engine swaps, this new book from CarTech is just the ticket. ---Classic Trucks, November 2009

We read the whole book from cover to cover as soon as we got it, and little gems of knowledge jumped out at us from nearly every section. ---Grassroots Motorsports, June 2009

A book that you'll want to read first to give yourself an idea of what this kind of engine swap involves, then you'll want it handy when you start on the LS-engine swap that you'd only been dreaming about. ---Corvette Fever, reviewed by Scott Ross, September 2009
