The wide range of Gen III and Gen IV LS engines delivers spectacular efficiency and performance.

Veteran author and LS engine swap master Jefferson Bryant reveals all the criteria to consider when choosing an LS engine for your sway project. He guides you through selecting or fabricating motor mounts, positioning the engine in the engine compartment, and packaging its equipment. As part of the installation, you need to choose a transmission crossmember that fits the engine and vehicle as well as selecting an oil pan that has the correct profile for the crossmember along with adequate ground clearance. Often the brake booster, steering shaft, accessory pulleys, and exhaust system present clearance challenges, so this book offers you the best options and solutions. In addition, adapting the computer-control system to the wiring harness and vehicle is thoroughly detailed.
