In the tradition of the original small-block Chevrolet introduced in 1955, the Gen III Chevy small-block V-8 has revolutionized the high performance V-8 world. If you pay attention at all to the current street scene, you know that 450+ horsepower head, cam and intake-equipped LS1 and LS6 engines are terrorizing the Mustang and import crowd. And with the recent barrage of after-market support, the LS1, LS6 and Vortec engines have officially established their position at the top of the modern hot-rodding food chain.
Whether you want to add a supercharger or tubrocharger, build an all-motor menace, or just add a few bolt-ons, How To Build High-Performance Chevy LS1/LS6 V-8s, will show you how. And, as any hard-core LS1/LS6 enthusiast can tell you, if you ever want to get serious about Gen III V-8 performance, you're going to have to learn to remove and reinstall your engine. That's why this book includes an entire chapter, with a total of 150 photos, to show you how to do exactly that in a Camaro/Firebird, a C5 Corvette and a full-size truck.
Then, rather than spending chapter after chapter explaining advanced engine theory, author Will Handzel, Group Manager of GM Performance Parts, uses elaborate step-by-step photo sequences (over 550 photos in all!) to demonstrate some of the most successful parts combinations he has come across. With everything from bolt-on parts to a 1,200-hp, 387-ci supercharged monster, this book has it. Take a look - you won't be disappointed.
