The General Motors G-Body is one of the manufacturer?s most popular  chassis, and includes cars such as Chevrolet Malibu, Monte Carlo, and El Camino; the Buick Regal, Grand National, and GNX; the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme; the Pontiac Grand Prix, and more. This traditional and affordable front engine/rear-wheel-drive design lends itself to common upgrades and modifications for a wide range of high-performance applications, from drag racing to road racing. Many of the vehicles GM produced using this chassis were powered by V-8 engines, and others had popular turbocharged V-6 configurations. Some of the special-edition vehicles were outfitted with exclusive performance upgrades, which can be easily adapted to other G-Body vehicles. Knowing which vehicles were equipped with which options, and how to best incorporate all the best-possible equipment is thoroughly covered in this book. A solid collection of upgrades, including brakes, suspension, and the installation of GMs most popular modern engine-the LS Series V-8, are all covered in great detail. The aftermarket support for this chassis is huge, and the interchangeability and affordability are a big reason for its popularity. It?s the last mass-produced V-8/rear-drive chassis that enthusiasts can afford and readily modify. There is also great information for use when shopping for a G-Body, including what areas to be aware of or check for possible corrosion, what options to look for and what should be avoided. No other book on the performance aspects of a GM G-Body has been published until now. ? First book ever published on these popular cars. ? A well-rounded look at the best aftermarket high performance handling and braking components currently offered for the GM G-body. ? Includes a full chapter on how to install a modern GM LS-series engine and matching transmission into a vintage G-body chassis.
