How To Supercharge & Turbocharge GM 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. Finally, Kluczyk explains how to adjust the electronic management system to accommodate a supercharger or turbocharger. This is the only book on the market specifically dedicated to forced air induction for LS-series engines. It provides exceptional guidance on the wide range of systems and kits available for arguably the most popular modern V-8 on the market today.
