GM LS Series engines are some of the most powerful, versatile, and popular V-8 engines ever produced. GM LS series engines deliver exceptional torque and abundant horsepower, they are in ample supply, and a massive range of aftermarket parts are available. Some of the LS engines produce about one horsepower per cubic engine in stock form-that's serious performance. One of most common ways to produce even 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 How to Supercharge and 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 their particular budget, engine, and application. The attributes of Roots-type and centrifugal-type 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 covered in terms of performance, as well as strength and reliability of the rotating assembly, block and other components. Finally, Kluczyk explains how to adjust electronic management system to accommodate a supercharger or turbocharger. How to Supercharge and Turbocharge GM LS Series Engines 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.

The General Motors G-Body is one of the manufacturer's most popular chassis, and includes cars such as Chevrolet Malibu, Monte Carlo, and El Camino; the Buick Regal, Grand National, and GNX; the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme; the Pontiac Grand Prix, and more. This traditional and affordable front engine/rear-wheel-drive design lends itself to common upgrades and modifications for a wide range of high-performance applications, from drag racing to road racing. Many of the vehicles GM produced using this chassis were powered by V-8 engines, and others had popular turbocharged V-6 configurations. Some of the special-edition vehicles were outfitted with exclusive performance upgrades, which can be easily adapted to other G-Body vehicles. Knowing which vehicles were equipped with which options, and how to best incorporate all the best-possible equipment is thoroughly covered in this book. A solid collection of upgrades including brakes, suspension, and the installation of GMs most popular modern engine-the LS-Series V-8-are all covered in great detail. The aftermarket support for this chassis is huge, and the interchangeability and affordability are a big reason for its popularity. It's the last mass-produced V-8/rear-drive chassis that enthusiasts can afford and readily modify. There is also great information for use when shopping for a G-Body, including what areas to be aware of or check for possible corrosion, what options to look for and what should be avoided. No other book on the performance aspects of a GM G-Body has been published until now, and this book will serve as the bible to G-Body enthusiasts for years to come.
