Excellent
Thankshe quality of the pages and the color is very good. I like all of the equations in the back and all of the torque specifications on several pages so you don't have to skim through all the sections to get the exact specification you're looking for. It also does show the torque spec though in the chapters as well.

How to Rebuild LS engines
This book is great as a review for any engine rebuild not only LS Gen 3/4 engines. The detail regarding the specific title is very informative. I have rebuilt many mid 50's to 70 engines. Having the knowledge that this book provides will come in handy as I begin my LS7 rebuild for my newest project.

This book gives great "LS-sons."
The book is FANTASTIC from every standpoint. From an LS novice to a seasoned engine builder, it has more information than a manual it's size should be able to hold. As far as the price and delivery turnaround time....second to none. Cheers and keep up the superb work!
