    Question parts interchange 2006 Corvette Z06 and LS1

    How is the parts interchange between my 1999 Camaro LS1 and the engine of a 2006 Corvette Z06?
    I have the rare opportunity (in The Netherlands) to buy from a 2006 Z06 with only 25000 miles :
    - block
    - heads
    - clutch
    - tranny
    - headers
    and some other stuff I'm not interrested in.

    Any help and info would be greatly appreciated.

    The Z06 has a 427 big block. I don't think any of it will really swap part for part.

    Someone else will have to chime in on the electrical.

    Probably will need a different TB for sure unless your factory is drive by wire.

    The ls7 is still a small block actually but it is a tad bigger than an ls1. I believe all the front drive accessories will swap over and the headers. The engine may need some fabrication to let it it in the f body subframe but it has been done before. You will need a new tb to work with the cable setup but I'm not sure abt the pcm and harness. You cannot swap any parts ie heads or intake to the ls1 as they are simply too big for the ls1 block, however swapping the whole engine would be badass.

    And that's the problem... it's not a complete engine, but just the mentioned parts...
    I'll keep searching this site and the web for other stuff, like the LS6 parts that ARE interchangable...

    Thanks guys

    Sorry but no more LS6 parts are interchangeable than on an LS1. Actually an LS1 and LS6 are virtually the same motor and every single part between these two ARE interchangeable.

    When you say block, do you mean the shortblock (block and rotating assembly) or literally just the block?

    If it's a whole engine, you need the Lingefelter reluctor converter to run it with an ls1 PCM; the MAF connectors and injector connectors are different, and possibly the feed for the coils (I forget, maybe they work) as well as any changes to the cam and knock sensors. It's not huge work though.

    It's just the block itself.
    you see..., in the US it might be quite easy to find/buy the rest of the parts to get a complete engine. In Holland it's not. I can order the parts in the States, but costs off shipping are huge!
    These kill my budget!

    I quess for now I'll be looking for thinngs like LS6 (Z06) cam, intake, heads etc. to up the power...

    IMO swapping in an LS6 cam is not worth the trouble. You can swap in something in the 224 range and pick up roughly twice the power an LS6 will give you and still maintain great drivability with a tune.

    What bolt ons do you have?

    Not much yet, just starting.
    I have SLP intake and smooth bellows, TB-bypass and SLP 160 thermostat.
    I opened up the air filter tray, which keeps an K&N filter, as well.
    The car is equipped with Strano 12 springs and Koni's 4/4.
    To be complete: my Z28 has original SS Rims (silver in color) with slotted and dimpled EBC brakes and pads, and an original SS rear spoiler.

    Sounds very nice

    I would at least do longtubes and a good Y pipe. Either a cutout (very cheap mod) or a good catback. If your not an 01-02 car an LS6 intake will help out but not totally necessary at this point. THEN put in a nice cam with a tune. The cam will need the supporting mods to shine. You will need to upgrade springs when the cam goes in even if it is just an LS6cam....
