For gearheads who want to build or modify popular LS engines, How to Build and Modify GM LS-Series Engines provides the most detailed and extensive instructions ever offered for those modding LS engines through the Gen IV models.
 
The LS1 engine shook the performance world when introduced in the 1997 Corvette. Today the LS9 version far eclipses even the mightiest big-blocks from the muscle car era, and it does so while meeting modern emissions requirements and delivering respectable fuel economy. Premier LS engine technician Joseph Potak addresses every question that might come up:

  • Block selection and modifications
  • Crankshaft and piston assemblies
  • Cylinder heads, camshafts, and valvetrain
  • Intake manifolds and fuel system
  • Header selection
  • Setting up ring and bearing clearances for specific uses 

Potak also guides readers through forced induction and nitrous oxide applications. In addition, the book is fully illustrated with color photography and detailed captions to further guide readers through the mods described, from initial steps to final assembly. Whatever the reader’s performance goals,How to Build and Modify GM LS-Series Engines will guide readers through the necessary modifications and how to make them. It’s the ultimate resource for building the ultimate LS-series engine!

The Motorbooks Workshop series covers topics that engage and interest car and motorcycle enthusiasts. Written by subject-matter experts and illustrated with step-by-step and how-it’s-done reference images, Motorbooks Workshop is the ultimate resource for how-to know-how.

Joseph Potak is a professional LS-series engine specialist and technician.
