There is no denying the fact the LS engine is here to stay. Sure, GM doesn’t build them for production cars anymore, but the “late-model small block” is not going away anytime soon. If you have any interest in hot rods, you have surely followed hot-rodding trends and realize the LS swap is the most popular engine swap on the market. The folks at Cartech completely understand that reasoning.
It’s easy to understand why, when you look at the potential it offers when building power. While kits and the aftermarket help with logistics and the placement of hardware (such as motor mounts, oil pans, and headers), the area that still remains a mystery to most, is how to wire and control the electronics of your swapped LS project.
If you’re planning an LS swap or just want to fill your noggin with some great information, then you need this latest book from Cartech. In LS Gen III Engine Wiring Systems, expert Mike Noonan helps demystify the entire complicated process. Inside, you’ll find extensive coverage of things you must know. Aspects like tools of the trade, advice about quality connections, detailed coverage of all the engine control modules offered, drive-by-wire systems, harness connectors, and cruise-control systems are just a portion of the information you’ll get. Also covered in depth are air-conditioning systems, cooling-system fan operation, transmission interfaces and connectivity, and control-module programming (tuning) for standalone operation.
The book features wiring diagrams and computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) artwork as well as an appendix with real-world projects and examples, this guide covers all the bases. Whether you are performing a simple swap that utilizes only the basics, a more complex project with all the bells and whistles or simply want a working knowledge of how these systems work, the LS Gen III Engine Wiring Systems book will be a valuable resource for years to come.
