This book is good, but very basic. I was hoping there would be specifics, but it is full of generalities. There is nothing in here that you couldnt find in 1-2 hours of searching the internet. If you have done zero research into your project, this is the book for you. But, if you are familiar, there is very little value added.

It was well written but included too much history of the concept rather than more of just the mechanics and how to fix it and alternate parts available. The LS build is new to me and I needed more specifics and pictures. A lot of time was put into explaining the development and technical work involved to develop this engine.

Good info, a bit dated though

As other reviewers have said, the book has tons of background information on the LS/Gen 3 series of engines. If you're just getting into these engines, this is an excellent resource. I've kept up with the LS craze in the magazines and online, so a lot of the info I already knew. Also, the book is a bit older (LS1/LS6/Gen3 engines went out of production around 2005, IIRC), so keep that in mind if you're working on an LS2, LS3, LS7, or other Gen4+ engine. The background info is still useful but there are some important differences. ...read more
