    what do y'all think

    is it worth the effert to swab out the 305 TPI and 5-speed trany out of my 87 IROC and drop in a LS1 and 6-speed out of a 99 camaro. I cant make up my mind what do you guys think? How hard is this swap? as far a fuel lines go what type of mods will I have to do.

    it can be done, it will just cost some. be better to just save some cash and get an ss or z 28. just my thought. i have an 87 monte ss aero coupe that i was thinking the same thing. but it will cost over 3 k at the least. that's why i say just save some money and for 8-10 k you can get what you really want. thanks jeremy

    Difficult & Expensive, probably better off going with '98-'02 F-Car, However, if you are determined it can be done.

    Primary issues:
    K-member interference
    Motor mounts
    Fuel delivery
    Transmission Bell housing is different bolt pattern
    ECM, Wiring harness, & Sensors
    Header Clearance
