    I contemplated the exact same thing in my 97 Z. Decided against it. Major task and lots of dough, many parts including the engine cradle/cross member have to be swapped, entire computer system, you get the idea. Much easier and cheaper in the long run to just purchase a 98 and up LS1 F-body. Larry.
