How common are LS swaps??

I have been to several car shows this year, including one very large show, and I think I have only seen one first gen camaro/firebird with an LS swap.

Are these swaps common in your area??

Any with factory air??

I've "heard" that LS F-body exhaust manifolds will work with the factory air "suitcase".
