Item Description

Designed for all users from novices to experienced builders, the 3rd Generation (or Gen III) Chevy Small Block V8 is revolutionizing the high-performance world. The book features color photos, detailed diagrams and engineering background to help users understand their engines while rebuilding them. This knowledge will help you make smart decisions and work through problems as you build your engine. The comprehensive guide is second to none and is a must-have resource for anyone rebuilding a Chevy LS1/LS6 V-8 Engine.

If you want to "soup-up" your Gen III Chevy V8, then this How to Build High Performance Chevy LS1/LS6 V-8s book is the one to read. In order to extract the most power out of your LS1 or LS6, you will need to know how to remove (and reinstall) the engine. An entire chapter of the book along with 150 color photos shows you how to do that, and do it the right way.

Examples shown in the manual include a Camaro, Firebird, C5 'Vette and a full-size pickup truck.
