In the latest installment of its video-based series focused on converting a General Motor LS automotive engine for marine applications, the crew at Powerboat1.com tackles the next step in showing one of the possible combinations this powerplant could be used in. 

Rick Bourns, the video host of Powerboat1.com and project and research leader for CP Performance. “Prepping this particular engine for say a Berkeley jet driven boat is a snap once we identify the matching components” .

PB1’s own Rick Bourns takes us through Identifying the different Styles of GM LS Crankshafts. The GM LS1, 2, and 3 series engines were offered in two different crankshaft end styles.
