How to Build and Modify GM LS-Series Engines
You will find information related to the engines as a whole in this book, listed as “LS-series” throughout. Specific differences and changes per engine family will be isolated by specific name. The GM performance parts LSX block is listed as “GMPP LSX” when referring directly to that engine block. Also, when referring specifically to small or large power-adders, I would use the mindset of “small” being something the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) engine would handle. For N20 this would be 150 shot or less with the proper safety precautions and fueling. With boost, I would classify “small” as what the supercharger or turbocharger kit does in off-the-shelf form. If it produces 7 psi as supplied, that is what I would consider “small.” Large power-adders are anything above these as-supplied basic numbers and would normally require greater attention to specific areas of the engine buildup for durability or longevity.
These odd-looking towers are part of the active fuel management or displacement on demand (DOD) lifter bleed down holes (on all Gen IV engines). Not used on the LS2, these need to be plugged with the correct valley cover that includes O-ring seals to avoid internal oil leaks.
The 6.2-liter Gen-IV aluminum cylinder block (mostly known as the LS3 or L92) is found in certain SUVs and 2008 and newer Corvettes. It is similar to the LS9 engine block found in the 2009 Corvette ZR1 in terms of displacement dimensions. The 6.2-liter blocks have a 4.065-inch bore size standard.
The LS3/L92 6.2-liter has many similarities to the 6.0-liter LS2. The only difference is a 0.065 inch increase in bore size. The 6.2-liters, like most Gen IV engines, come DOD-equipped also, but the system is left unused. SUV 6.2-liters come with variable valve timing (V VT) progressively migrated to other applications.
The LS3/L92 block can tolerate a 0.020-inch overbore easily. Some have even bored these to 4.100 inch bore sizing. When getting that aggressive, it’s probably best to stay away from power-adders as the cylinder sleeve ends up quite thin.
From the Back Cover
With these credentials, it is no wonder that the LS-series engines are among the most popular engines for high-performance applications. They respond well to modifications and can handle massive power, whether naturally-aspirated, nitrous-injected, or by way of forced induction.
How to Build and Modify GM LS-Series Engines shows what modifications are needed to acheive any performance goal you desire. Topics include block selection and modifications, crankshaft and piston assemblies, cylinder heads, camshafts, valvetrain, intake manifolds, fuel system, and header selection. This is the ultimate resource to build the ultimate LSX engine!
