In 1992, General Motors introduced the LT1 V-8
engine. This upgraded design, based on the traditional (since 1955)
small-block V-8, marked a significant step forward for GM, as the engine
was designed to be a modern, efficient, computer-controlled powerplant
from the start. This was unlike any other V-8 GM had ever built, and the
results were outstanding.
The LT1, along with its more powerful stablemate,
the LT4, raised the bar for performance-oriented small-blocks until the
introduction of the LS1 in 1997. The LT1/LT4 engines are powerful,
relatively lightweight, and affordable. They powered Chevrolet?s
legendary Impala SS (and thousands of similar police cars), Corvettes,
and Camaros and remain viable choices for enthusiasts today.
This book investigates every component of these
engines, discussing their strong and weak points and identifying
characteristics. Upgrades and modifications for both improved power
production and enhanced durability are described and explained in full.
All relevant factory casting numbers are listed. Aftermarket component
upgrades for improved street and track performance are defined clearly
and in great detail.
First book to specifically address performance
modifications for the LT1/LT4 engines.
LT1/LT4 engines powered Corvettes, Camaros, and
Impala SS cars from 1992 to 1997.
LT1/LT4 engines are an excellent and affordable
platform for major performance improvements.
