1997 Vette Ls1/T56

I came across a 1997 Corvette LS1/T56 with 90k on it from a wreck. I’ve been wanting to do a swap in my 1968 Camaro since I bought it, but really don’t know much about the differences in years and cars they came in. Is there anything I should know about this specific year/combo before pulling the trigger?

Not a great choice imho. Unique ECM and perimeter bolt heads. Try to find something later if you can.

Agree with Don, also you can't really utilize the vette version of the T56 because it is built into the torque tube.
