Without a doubt, GM's LS Series engines are the hottest thing going right now. Thousands of enthusiasts are either modifying their cars factory equipped with these engines, supported by a robust aftermarket, or converting their vintage muscle cars to run with these efficient and powerful engines. Of course, with technology comes complexity. To get the maximum performance and efficiency out of any modern engine, you have to have a solid understanding of the technology involved and how to make the most of it.

In How to Use and Upgrade to GM Gen III LS-Series Powertrain Control Systems, the benefits, advantages and nuances of this robust and efficient control system are thoroughly examined. Do you have a vehicle already equipped with an LS Series engine but want to do a transmission swap? Do you want to convert from a cable throttle to an electronic throttle, and make systems like cruise control integrate? Do you want to eliminate the dreaded Optispark distributor from your LT1/LT4? Perhaps convert your Gen I small-block to distributor-less ignition? Or convert to universal OBD-II diagnostics? Do you want an affordable control system to run fuel injection, ignition timing, cooling fans, air conditioning, and electronic overdrive transmissions while swapping all if this into your classic muscle car?

How to Use and Upgrade to GM Gen III LS-Series Powertrain Control Systems will cover all of these applications and more. Not only are the performance and flexibility aspects covered in great detail, but there are significant cost benefits as well. Implementing a GM Series III PCM based control system will not only afford you great flexibility and tune-ability, but it can be accomplished significantly cheaper than most aftermarket alternatives. If you are planning any of these complex swaps or just looking to thoroughly understand the nuances of modern GM control systems, this book is a vital addition to your technical library.
