Default **BigBronco's Must Have LS1 Book List**

Alrighty, here are some decent books for you to read if you are interested in the school. Now, these will not make you a master of the internal combustion engine, BUT they can certainly help you out with the basic understanding of creating power. Some of the information in the books are dated, but it is still decent information worth KNOWING about and how builders used to think.

Here are a few books I have personally read that are on the list:

Engine Blueprinting:Rick Voegelin (One of the best books OUT in the industry)

Smokey Yunik's Power Secrets : Smokey Yunik (Also a great book, but some info is dated [Rod/Stroke Ratio BS])

Some books STRICTLY ON certain motors that are good:

How to Build High-Performance Chevy LS1/6 V8's : Will Handzel (Good LS1 book with part numbers, etc. Starting to get dated with the newer LS2/7 items but a nice read for you LSX owners

How to Hotrod Small Block Chevy's (Very straight forward book)

How to Hotrod Big Block Chevy's (Again, all around good info on the BBC)

Ford Performance: by Pat Ganahl (Great book about the entire Ford motor line)

Carbs / Fastners / Etc:

Holley Carburetors: Dave Emanuel (One of the best carb books on the planet and easy to read)

Nuts, Bolts, Fastners, and Plumbing Handbook: Carroll Smith (MUST READ, Long but great information)

Automotive Supercharing and Turbocharging System: John D. Humphries (Ultra technical but once again great info on Forced induction systems)

These books can be found at Barnes and Noble, Hastings, etc. They are not THAT expensive. 15 to 35 dollars per book. You can even get them off the internet. There are many more out there, but I know those will keep you busy for a while. Once again, these will not make you an expert or a pro, but will SURELY give you great information and a better understanding of the internal combustion engine.

Let me know if this helps any of you guys.
