Re: LT1 Engine
i'd say "yes" to either one.
for the LT1, find a 94 Caprice cop car with an LT1 for a cheap donor car. the only physical difference between the F body and B body LT1 is the cast iron heads on the B body engines- but that's a good thing, since they are just the fabled vortec heads with reverse cooling and are said by some to make more power than the oem aluminum heads on the F body motors. why did i specify a 94, you ask? because in 95, they went to the OBD2 electronics, which adds another level of complexity with it's after cat O2 sensors and more stringent ecm tuning. and why did i specify a cop car- because they didn't use the stupid VATS system that requires a key with a chip on it to start the car, which also adds another level of complexity. also, every B body LT1 had the "improved" vented optispark distributor. the Camaro and Vette didn't get that until 96, i think.
for an LS1 engine, if you can't find a Z28 parts car, just get a 5.3 or 6.0 out of a newer truck- they have made millions of them so far, and they are turning up in junkyards- and put a Camaro oil pan and intake on it, put it in, and go have some fun.
you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.
wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
