The Building the Chevy LS Engine: Rebuilding and Performance Modifications how-to book, written by Mike Mavrigian, provides comprehensive rebuild and performance how-to tips and techniques to enhance the peformance of your Chevy LS engine.

This Chevy LS engine rebuild and performance manual covers:

  • Chevy LS1 5.7L 1997-2004
  • Chevy LS6 5.7L 1999-2004
  • Chevy LS2 6.0L 2005-2007
  • Chevy LS3 6.2L 2008
  • Chevy LS7 7.0L 2006-2008+
  • Chevy LS9 6.2L 2009+

Gen III GM engines represent the previous generations of GM "small-block" engines. Since the debut of the LS1 in 1997, the LS family has gained substantial momentum in the performance aftermarket.

Gen III and Gen IV engines include more than 5.7L and 6.0L versions, and while the book's introduction provides overall background information on the entire LS series, the focus is on building a Gen IV LS2 in a performance approach as an example. All assembly techniques apply to all LS variants.

The LS generation of Chevy/GM motors have set new standards for engine performance in the enthusiast and racing worlds. In this how-to book, engine builder and writer Mike Mavrigian features a 625 HP buildup of an LS2 with part numbers, clearances, specs, full assembly, and dyno test results.

The procedures and aftermarket performance parts selections apply to all LS engines, including the LS1, LS6, LS2, LS3, LS7 and LS9.
