    Well Its a bit of work and quite a bit of money but you can do it might want an expert to help you out tho. cause you can mess up one little sensor and you engine wont fire, as for the LS7 I'm sure you could do a trans plant with enough money and fabrication time. there is a guy on here that did a LS1 body & engine swap on his 95 TA it looks really nice. Here is the link to his member page I'm sure he could help>>>>SteelCityTA

    Actually, I don't think SteelCity's done an engine swap with his yet. He did however convert his whole front end to the 98-02 body style and did a great job. Talking to him can't hurt though cause I think he's still researched it

    By the time you're done with all of it, you could've just bought a LS1 T/A

    If you mean the fixed headlights not pop-ups, I would think 2x bout it. I've heard many bad things bout them, mainly the plastic covers crap and falls off. I don't think it'd be too much to convert it. I was actually thinking bout doing a early 4th gen to late 4th gen conversion myself. If your planning on swapping the parts anyways and get the car itself for cheap I don't think it'd be that much more than getting an LS1 year. Your might swap out parts such as hood, suspension, rims, etc. which my get swapped anyways
