don`t think so, the LS1 uses reverse flow cooling, if you got past that, then you got to get rid of the fuel injection and go to carb, then to a older HEI due to the LS1 uses a Opti Spark system, not sure if all this could be done, but in the end you have to ask your self is it worth it? it`s not gonna make no where near the same power without the computers aid and injection. the LS1 also uses a different style mounting that older chevy`s.

I believe HRM made a 69 camaro with an ls1. It was a huge project. Its not really worth it unless you have a bunch of time and money.

It Can and has been done, but leave all the electronics intact that is what makes this unit so great. A couple of companies make a harness to make it run in the older cars. A lot of high end street rods and now running these and have tons on power and decent fuel mileage to boot.

A quick google search netted this result:

<a href="http://www.centechwire.com/catalog/fuelinjection/efiprice.html" target="_blank">ls1 wiring harness</a>

I'm certain there's more places to acquire the electronics for your engine. Personally, I think it's a great idea. Note: I've not purchased from the company linked above, so I can not vouch for them. Also, these harnesses do not include the emissions equipment.
