Variants of General Motor’s groundbreaking family of LS engines are installed in everything from mundane Chevrolet panel vans to the earth-shaking Corvette Z06. Released in 1997, the original LS1, and its numerous successors have proven powerful, reliable, and amazingly flexible.
Performance enthusiasts embraced this remarkable V-8, and it quickly became a favorite for engine swaps into project vehicles ranging from classic muscle cars to hot rods to race cars. Why? Because the versatile LS offers fantastic power, a compact design, light weight, and it responds very well to performance modifications. The key to this performance is a sophisticated electronics package demystified here by the author.
In GM LS-Series Engines: The Complete Swap Manual 2nd Edition, professional LS-series engine specialist Joseph Potak details all the considerations involved in performing this swap into any vehicle. With clear instructions, color photos, diagrams, and specification tables, Potak guides you through:
This is the ultimate guide to installing an LS in your project car.
Automotive enthusiasts who have followed hot-rodding
trends over the last decade know that GM’s LS-series engine
is the most popular swap on the market. Similar to the first generation small-block Chevy engines that were swapped into
Model A Fords back in the day, these swaps are arguably just
as popular. While kits and the aftermarket help with the logistics and the placement of hardware (such as motor mounts,
oil pans, and headers), the area that still remains a mystery to
most is how to wire and electronically control your swapped
In LS Gen III Engine Wiring Systems, expert Mike Noonan
helps demystify the entire complicated process. Extensively
covered are terms and tools of the trade, advice on quality
connections, detailed coverage of all the engine control modules offered, drive-by-wire systems, harness connectors, and
cruise-control systems. Also covered in depth are air-conditioning systems, cooling-system fan operation, transmission
interfaces and connectivity, and control-module programming
(tuning) for standalone operation.
Featuring wiring diagrams and computer-aided design
(CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) artwork as
well as an appendix with real-world projects and examples,
this guide covers all the bases. Whether you are performing
a simple swap that utilizes only the basics, a more complex
project with all the bells and whistles, or simply want a working knowledge of how these systems work, this guide will be a
valuable resource for years to come.
