    Yes it will fit.....but you have to cap off one fitting at the bottom/left of radiator. LT1 had one different fitting than an LS1. Just use a rubber cap and hose clamp....very simple fix. I recommend you get a '93-'96 radiator and not a '97. The '93-'96 radiator is bigger than the '97. Although a '97 is slightly bigger than any of the LS1 ('98-'02).
