Can you believe the end of another week is staring us straight in the face? Friday is almost here. It’s true when they say time flies when you’re having fun. Now that Thursday has hit us and the end of the week is announcing its arrival, it’s time for another Throwback Thursday.
This week, we are taking a trip back to March 2012 to check out, 10 Basic Tips to Building Your First LS Engine. The article begins by announcing, we may be a bit biased, but it seems pretty clear that GM’s LS engines are just about the hottest thing going in the automotive performance world today. In the years since their introduction in the C5 Corvette, LS engines have become renowned for their ability to make big power numbers with relatively few modifications, and more recently, LS’ have become the engine choice for anyone looking to swap a V8 powerplant into almost any make or model (…including Fords and many imports…).
We feel it’s a true statement and decided that helping you guys understand the fundamentals of rebuilding Chevrolet’s LS would be a great idea. To accomplish that, we reached out to Golen Engine Service.
In the original article, you’ll find all the information you need to help ensure you build a reliable and powerful LS engine for your swap or late-model hot rod. In fact, we discuss block selection, internal components, proper machine work, bearing installation, and many of the other major – and minor components that make up a good engine.
There’s a lot more to this incredible story, and that definitely makes it worthy of a second look. For that reason, I selected 10 Basic Tips to Building Your First LS Engine as this week’s Throwback Thursday showcase article.
