Editorial Reviews

Review

"You can benefit greatly from having this book at your fingertips. The day I received it at the office, I used it to answer one of our members' questions. Don't let this book slip by. Myron has been working on this book for years and it was worth the years of waiting--Great job, Myron." (Mike Caruso engine professional 2013-02-08)

"This book details the factory-spec engines and all the available, and best, aftermarket upgrades for the LT1 and LT4, while proffering sound advice and recommendations on what to do and how to do it." (tkc magazine 2013-02-25)

From the Back Cover

GM’s LT1/LT4 engines represented the highest level of small-block V-8 develop-ment for the period between the legendary small-block Chevrolet and the introduction of the LS-series V-8. They powered all of the hottest production vehicles of the 1990s, including the Corvette, Camaro/Firebird, and Caprice/Impala SS. These enhanced small-blocks were reliable and strong, and can be built to impressive performance levels on a relatively small budget, with the right upgrades. This book guides you through the factory and aftermarket components of the LT1/LT4 engines, offering sound performance advice and recommendations. Additionally, complete engine buildup recipes are provided, along with their respective horsepower and torque levels. You can follow the advice of experts and achieve targeted results for your own project.

I'm building an LT1 for my Hot Rod, this book offers many options and details for building many different levels of performance LT1s, with dyno results, this is the best LT1 book I've seen so far.

Are you one of those people that has to take your stuff apart and put it back together your way? Or to see how its wearing, or make reasonable modifications to plant you into the seat harder? If you are, and you have plans of rebuilding this series of engines, this is the best information that I have found to supplement the GM manual. See LT1s stripped down to their bare essentials and check out what's below the covers - OH YEAH Don't rebuild without this reading first.

This book has plenty of data for almost everyone, beginner and advanced gearhead alike. The photos and descriptions are clear. Mek room on your shelf for this one if you have a late 90s year Camaro, Firebird or Corvette.

Not a bad reference guide, I guess. If one has the time to dig around you can pretty much find the info on line. I was hoping to see more part numbers etc.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book does give basics about the LT4 and LT1 engines but I thought it would have more important details. In my opinion it seems that TPIS (Myron Cottrell) was pushing his products (example horsepower gains from the airfoil). The optispark: Summed up as the better alternative, convert it to the 24 X conversion that is way too pricey. Why not talkabout a vented optispark which has been reliable in the 95,96 engines. Details of the inside of the block were touched upon, but I just did not learn anything from this book. That is why I gave it 3 stars. Not really worth it unless you know nothing about an LTX engine.
