Item description for Dyno-Proven GM LS1 Thru LS7 Performance Parts (S-A Design) (S-A Design) by Richard Holdener...
The small-block Chevy may still be the most popular high-performance engine of all time, but GM’s next generation LS-Series engines are quickly taking over. Starting in 1997 with the C5 Corvette, GM performance cars and trucks have featured LS1, LS2, LS6, LS7, and other LS-Series Gen III engines—and the high-performance aftermarket has taken off. To add power to any of the LS-Series V-8s, you could add ported heads, a camshaft, a Z06-spec or an aftermarket intake manifold, exhaust headers, a cold-air intake--the list goes on and on. But how do you know what will give you the power you want? Author Richard Holdener has filled Building GM LS-Series Horsepower on the Dyno with over 150 dyno tests and 350 photos so you can separate the power-building parts from the fluff. Chapters cover factory and aftermarket upgrades to the intake and exhaust systems, the cylinder heads and camshaft, stroker kits and raised compression, and even superchargers, turbos, and nitrous. There’s no advertising here—just dyno-verified results.

More About Richard Holdener
Richard Holdener was born in Washington D.C. but his family moved almost immediately to California. His first automotive experience came with his father at a car show. After viewing all of the elaborate horsepower hard-ware, Holdener was hooked on going fast. His garage has been home to a variety of high-performance machinery. The list includes a couple of Camaros, a Lotus-motored Jensen Healy, a 260 Z, a 230SL Mercedes, a 1972 911T, a blown crewcab Dualie, a pair of Hondas (one supercharged Civic Si), a Toyota Corolla, a Mercedes 450 SEL, and trio of hot motorcycles. First came the Honda 500 Interceptor, then the 600 Ninja, and finally the GSX-R750. Somewhere in all this madness came a 1965 Hipo GT and a trio of 5.0L Mustangs. Holdener's first article came from his Mustang adventures at the Silver State. Since this initial coverage, Holdener has contributed to numerous magazines, including Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, Car Craft, Super Ford, Truckin', Mustang Illustrated, Popular Hotrodding, Sport CompactCar, European Car, Pontiac Enthusiast, and many others.

Not worth the $$ whatsoever. I expected a lot more data/write ups vs. what you get which is dyno graphs galore. Do waste your money as I did mine.
