How to Build and Modify GM LS-Series Engines

You will find information related to the engines as a whole in this book, listed as “LS-series” throughout. Specific differences and changes per engine family will be isolated by specific name. The GM performance parts LSX block is listed as “GMPP LSX” when referring directly to that engine block. Also, when referring specifically to small or large power-adders, I would use the mindset of “small” being something the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) engine would handle. For N20 this would be 150 shot or less with the proper safety precautions and fueling. With boost, I would classify “small” as what the supercharger or turbocharger kit does in off-the-shelf form. If it produces 7 psi as supplied, that is what I would consider “small.” Large power-adders are anything above these as-supplied basic numbers and would normally require greater attention to specific areas of the engine buildup for durability or longevity.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"How to Build and Modify GM LS-Series Engines: this is a very hands-on book with some of the best photography. Joseph Potak harnessed years of LS engine building knowledge and experience into this helpful book. From basic assembly type stuff to reviewing aftermarket components, describing when and why to use them, Potak covers all the bases. This book is one of the most recent printings, so it is therefore one of the most up to date in terms of new products." - blogs.gmhightechperformance.com

From the Back Cover

GM's LS1 engine shook the performance world when it was introduced in the 1997 Corvette. It set a new precedent for massive power, light weight, and impressive fuel economy. Often referred to as the Generation III engine, it (and its most recent iteration, the Gen IV) is the high-water mark for performance V-8 engines. The latest version, the LS9, makes some 638 hp from just 6.2 liters, far eclipsing even the mightiest big-blocks from the muscle car era. And it does so while meeting modern emissions requirements and delivering respectable fuel economy.

 

With these credentials, it is no wonder that the LS-series engines are among the most popular engines for high-performance applications. They respond well to modifications and  can handle massive power, whether naturally-aspirated, nitrous-injected, or by way of forced induction.

 

How to Build and Modify GM LS-Series Engines shows what modifications are needed to acheive any performance goal you desire. Topics include block selection and modifications, crankshaft and piston assemblies, cylinder heads, camshafts, valvetrain, intake manifolds, fuel system, and header selection. This is the ultimate resource to build the ultimate LSX engine!
