Product description

From the Inside Flap

The 1970-1981 Camaros and Firebirds are enduring classics; the LT-1 Z28, Firebird Formula 400, and the Smokey and the Bandit edition Trans Ams. But many owners want their rides to have the latest and greatest in GM engine technology and performance, and that's the LS engine. And, these F-Body cars readily accept these compact, lightweight modern V-8 engines. The LS engines are powerhouses and produce more horsepower per cubic inch than almost all other pushrod V-8 engines, so the combination of the GM LS engine in Camaro or Firebird make for an extraordinary performance car. And that's precisely why these engine swaps have become so popular.

To perform a professional caliber GM LS engine swap into a Camaro or Firebird, you need proper planning, the right combination of parts, and information to complete the project. "Swap LS Engines into Camaros & Firebirds" provides excellent instruction and guidance for selecting the best engine for a budget, choosing the adapter plates and engine mounts, dropping the engine in the car, selecting the ideal transmission and drivelines, and completing all facets of the swap. You need to ensure that all the other components on the car are compatible with the engine, so author McClellan instructs readers how to integrate the electronic engine control system on the early F-Body cars as well as select and install exhaust, intake, fuel pumps, upgrade cooling system for the high-performance LS.

While the swapping process is covered in detail, the author also provides a helpful Gen III and Gen IV LS engine guide, so the reader finds the best performing and reliable engine suited for a particular car and application, such as Pro Touring, drag racing, and high-performance street. In addition, the author explains how to shop for and buy a used LS engine from a salvage yard, so you get a good engine with all required accessories. When a reader is ready to swap GM LS engine for stock powerplant, they are going to need this book.
