    If I've learnt anything from GM, it's probably the Vette engine covers.

    I was pretty sure the engine was detuned (smaller cam) for the F-bodies so Corvette owners wouldn't cry that they were paying more for their cars.

    Differences are dependant on what year car your talking about.
    In general all LS1's are the same and make the same power but there are differences between years for Corvette and F-body

    `98-00 Corvette and F-body LS1's have different cams but will not show a power difference.
    All `01-04 LS1's are the same Corvette GTO and F-body

    YEp ls1s made around 350hp each year and in each car. Only difference is the vette is lighter, and the T/A has live axle better for drag racing.

    just buy a hose that'll be long enough to go from the engine to the Radiator... and you wont need any fittings or nothing...

    It was from a 40 roll, so from a dig I'm not sure what the outcome would have been.

    Vettes have a slightly better flowing (true dual) exhaust.
