    caprice with a ls1 engine help

    I just bought a 94 caprice classic ls with a ls1 engine out of a 1990 corvette. It also has a K&N air intake system. Can somebody tell what I have? I have done a little research on the engine but I really don't know much more then I have read. Can you guys give me some insight on my engine and how runs in big car like a caprice?

    First off I think you may be mistaken on a few things. Either you have the year of the vette wrong or you have a defferent motor than what you think. The LS1 wasnt introduced in the vette until 1997. In 1990 it wasnt even the LT1 but instead the TPI motor. Post a pic of under the hood and we will help you figure out what you actually have going on here.

    ^^what he said. If the previous owner pulled the LT-1 for an L98 TPI, I would consider that sacrilege. That's like moving 100 steps backward instead of moving 100 steps forward.

    Op might have meant 1999. It's easy to mistype. Will wait for OP to state which motor.
