    Well, the Corvette LS1 has 25 more hp than the F-Bodies, but other than that nothing is different.

    You will probably need an F-body oil pan, I can't see the Corvette batwing oil pan fitting with the F-body k-member.

    the only difference is the oil pans... other than that they are exactly the same!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
