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; it 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 with adequate ground clearance that has the correct profile for the crossmember. Often the brake booster, steering shaft, accessory pulleys, and the exhaust system present clearance challenges, so this book offers 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, and 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. About The Author: A lifelong car guy, Jefferson Bryant has been working on cars since the tender age of 16 when he bought a 1978 Pontiac Firebird. As a hands-on tech writer, he has performed many GM LS engine swaps in his own shop. His work has appeared in the country's top automotive magazines, including Hot Rod, Car Craft, Rod & Custom, Musclecar Enthusiast, and many others. Bryant has written How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines, the first edition of How to Swap GM LS-Series Engines into Just About Anything, and How to Design and Install In-Car Entertainment Systems. He is a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association.
