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.
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.
