The Chevy LS Engine Conversion Handbook, written by Shawn Henderson, is an authoritive how-to reference resource on LS engine swaps for late model cars and trucks, muscle cars, imports, and street rods. This how-to guide is a must have for the DIY'er and it is always on sale at The Motor Bookstore.

The General Motors family of Gen III LS engines, which debuted in the 1997 Corvette as the LS1, replaced the short-lived Gen II LT1/LT4.

The following year, both the Camaro and Firebird received the LS1 and beginning with the 1999 model year, 4.8L, 5.3L and 6.0L iron-block engines appeared in GM trucks and SUVs.

The Chevy LS Engine Conversion Handbook offers information on how to properly swap the LS into just about any vehicle, and begins the discussion on engine RPO and production variations, then details dimensions, specs, and parts interchangeability between the various LS models.

The LS-Series, also known as the LSX-Series, are the most powerful V-8 engines ever built by General Motors. Their power is matched with incredible fuel economy and eco-friendly emissions that can triple gas mileage of a big-block with the same power.

This how-to book offers an illustrated approach to the LS conversion process and provides several options on completing a conversion for various applications.

Swapping an engine can be a very expensive proposition if done without proper planning. This manual will help you avoid common pitfalls and a garage full of expensive, unused engine parts.
