The GM LS engine has become the dominant V-8 engine in GM vehicles and a top-selling high-performance crate engine. It has also become the most popular V-8 engine to swap into many American and foreign performance cars and trucks. The wide range of Gen III and Gen IV LS engines delivers spectacular efficiency and performance. These compact, lightweight, cutting-edge pushrod V-8 engines have become affordable and readily obtainable from a variety of sources. Veteran author and LS engine swap master Jefferson Bryant reveals all the criteria to consider when choosing an LS engine for your swap 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. This all-new edition of the original top-selling title, How to Swap GM LS Engines into Almost Anything covers the right way to do a spectrum of swaps. So, pick up this guide, select your ride, and get started on your next exciting project.

Millions of Chevy 10- and 12-bolt axles were installed on GM vehicles. In addition, the Chevy 10- and 12-bolts are the high-performance and limited-slip differentials of choice for GM muscle cars. These high-performance differentials were installed on Camaros, Chevelles, Corvettes, and many other GM muscle cars from 1964 to 1972, as well as many trucks.

The Chevy 10-bolts with 8.5-inch ring gears are exceptional high-performance rear differentials and capably handle high-horsepower engines. Many owners need to rebuild high-mileage, worn-out, or damaged axle assemblies in their favorite vehicle. Some may find a used axle assembly, rebuild it, and install it in a vehicle for a high-performance upgrade while others may fit an aftermarket Chevy 12-bolt differential to a vehicle for racing and high-performance use. This book serves all these owners.

In this step-by-step guide, author Jefferson Bryant explains and shows how to disassemble, identify, inspect, select parts for, and reassemble the axle assembly.

Whether your vehicle is for high-performance street, off-road, street/strip, or racing, the Chevy 10- and 12-bolt axle assemblies are a top choice for GM and non-GM muscle cars and trucks. This is the only book dedicated to rebuilding, setting up, and tuning these axle assemblies for long service life and maximum performance.
