How To Supercharge & Turbochargegm Ls-Series Engines - Revised
GM LS-series engines are some of the most powerful, versatile, and
popular V-8 engines ever produced. They deliver exceptional torque and
abundant horsepower, are in ample supply, and have a massive range of
aftermarket parts available. One of the most common ways to produce more
horsepower is through forced air induction- -supercharging or
turbocharging. Right-sized superchargers and turbochargers and
relatively easy tuning have grown to make supercharging or turbocharging
an LS-powered vehicle a comparatively simple yet highly effective method
of generating a dramatic increase in power.
In the revised edition of How to Supercharge & Turbocharge GM LS-Series
Engines, supercharger and turbocharger design and operation are covered
in detail, so the reader has a solid understanding of each system and
can select the best system for his or her budget, engine, and
application. The attributes of Roots-type and centrifugaltype
superchargers as well as turbochargers are extensively discussed to
establish a solid base of knowledge. Benefits and drawbacks of each
system as well as the impact of systems on the vehicle are explained.
Also covered in detail are the installation challenges, necessary tools,
and the time required to do the job. Once the system has been installed,
the book covers tuning, maintenance, and how to avoid detonation so the
engine stays healthy. Cathedral, square, and D-shaped port design heads
are explained in terms of performance, as well as strength and
reliability of the rotating assembly, block, and other components.
