    I would go with the Fast 92mm LSX intake and Bigmouth throttle body.

    A 92mm LSX intake and throttle body will run you about $1150. I'd have it ported as well.
    I don't exactly follow what your asking about the computer though.
    You have a 2001 LS1, correct? What all do you have with it? and fuel injection items? If not then that'll up the price about 500 (thats if I were to do it since I would get the LSX fuel rails and a set of big injectors) or so ontop of a wiring harness and computer, if you don't have those.

    Im kinda confused by the Original post. If you are looking for a carb set-up edelbrock makes one http://www.edelbrock.com/automotive_..._gap-ls1.shtml

    carbs have there benefits and drawbacks, but I would think it would be way easier to set up a carb, rather than mess with all the wiring and sensors
