GM LS-Series Engines 

How to Supercharge & Turbocharge

Revised Edition

Livre en anglais de Barry Kluczyk

This revised edition of How to Supercharge & Turbocharge GM LS-Series Engines is the only book on the market dedicated specifically to forced induction for LS-Series engines, and it will help you gain a solid understanding of how supercharger and turbocharger systems work so you can select the best system for your 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 are explained as well as the impact of systems on the vehicle.

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 explained in terms of performance, as well as strength and reliability of the rotating assembly, block, and other components.
