Son Of An LS1Since 1997, when Chevrolet surprised the automotive world by introducing its new Generation III LS1/LS6 engine in the Chevrolet Corvette and Pontiac Firebird, the Gen III V-8 has been the engine everyone wants to know more about. Though it's found in all performance Chevrolets from 1997 to 1998, as well as in tens of thousands of fullsize GM trucks and the new GTO, there has been little how-to performance information available on this engine.
CarTech announces a brand-new book that thoroughly covers the Chevy Gen III V-8, with step-by-step instructions and details not found anywhere else. How to Build High-Performance Chevy LS1/LS6 V-8s by Will Handzel is a must-have resource for the enthusiast who wants to get the most performance out of this new engine design but is familiar only with the older Chevy small-blocks. This book covers everything you need to know about these engines, including engine removal and installation, simple engine bolt-ons, electronic controls for the Gen III engine, and detailed engine builds at four different power levels. Handzel, a former editor of Hot Rod and Rod & Custom magazines, is currently the program director of GM Performance Parts.CarTechNorth Branch, MN(800) 551-4754www.cartechbooks.com
