    On LT1 swap, you have to get a K-member that had a LT1 engine. LS2? I don't know if LS1 engine mounts are the same as the LS2.

    i put an ls1 in a 94, doesnt matter what you're swapping you need the proper K member, computer, intake and exhaust. www.speartech.com can help you with wiring harnesses

    you'll also want to ditch the v6 suspension and breaks, it DEFINATLY can not handle the power of the v8 and you could cause a serious accident
