From the Inside Flap
Introduced in 1997, the GM LS engine has become the dominant V-8 engine in GM vehicles and a top-selling high-performance crate engine. GM has released a wide range of Gen III and IV LS engines that deliver spectacular efficiency and performance. These compact, lightweight, cutting-edge pushrod V-8 engines have become affordable and readily obtainable from a variety of sources. In the process, the LS engine has become the most popular V-8 engine to swap into many American and foreign muscle cars, sports cars, trucks, and passenger cars.
To select the best engine for an LS engine swap, you need to carefully consider the application. Veteran author and LS engine swap master Jefferson Bryant reveals all the criteria to consider when choosing an LS engine for a swap project. You are guided through selecting or fabricating motor mounts for the project. Positioning the LS engine in the engine compartment and packaging its equipment is a crucial part of the swap process, which is comprehensively covered. As part of the installation, you need to choose a transmission crossmember that fits the engine and vehicle as well as selecting an oil pan that has the correct profile for the crossmember with adequate ground clearance. Often the brake booster, steering shaft, accessory pulleys, and the exhaust system present clearance challenges, so this book offers you the best options and solutions. In addition, adapting the computer-control system to the wiring harness and vehicle is a crucial aspect for completing the installation, which is thoroughly detailed.
As an all-new edition of the original top-selling title, "LS Swaps: How to Swap GM LS Engines into Almost Anything" covers the right way to do a spectrum of swaps. So, pick up this guide, select your ride, and get started on your next exciting project.
