    LS1 head compatibility

    I have a friend that wants to use my LS1 heads on his older TPI setup 1986 Corvette. I have no clue if the bolt pattern is even the same.

    So this begs the question, what motors will fit the LS1 style heads? Only LSx blocks?

    Another question. I have the original LS1 camshaft as well. What motors will accept this cam? Any small block chevy?

    Gen I and Gen II parts are NOT interchangeable with Gen III parts.

    You "Might" be able to swap a few bolts around. But other than that there is not a single interchangeable part in an LSx and non LSx.
