About this title


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.

Whether you're a budget enthusiast looking for the best-possible factory head to top your specific combination, an engine swapper looking to modernize your vintage muscle car, or a racer looking for the best-flowing head out there, High-Performance GM LS- Series Cylinder Head Guide is essential for accomplishing your goals.

From the Back Cover:

The High-Performance GM LS-Series Cylinder Head Guide is a comprehensive breakdown of the features and specifications of all available Gen III/IV small-block Chevrolet cylinder heads. The book begins with a brief history of the Gen III/IV engine, its design features and evolution, compatibility, and interchangeability. It then touches on some cylinder head theory that applies to these high-tech heads. The wide range of available LS-series heads means the best-possible cylinder head for your project does exist, and this book will help guide you to identify and select it. The three major types of LS-series cylinder heads (cathedral port, rectangular port, and race port) are covered in depth, from intake runner size to chamber volume, valve sizes and angles, price, recommended applications, flow numbers, and much more. All of the factory cylinder heads are covered, as well as a very broad range of modified factory heads and purely aftermarket castings from the biggest names in the high-performance industry. All of the heads are reviewed identically so they may be easily compared. The book also delves into supporting components and even reviews readily available engine blocks and intake manifolds with the same meticulous attention to detail and hands-on knowledge. Again, both factory and aftermarket offerings are covered and include the critical engineering information performance enthusiasts need and current pricing wherever possible. This makes it a must for the aspiring as well as the experienced builder or owner. Arm yourself with the knowledge to pick the right parts for your particular combination!
