GM makes a carb intake for the LT1 motor. You have to have a few other parts, too. You replace the stub oil pump drive with a regular distributor. You need a plug (also from GM) for where the Optispark distributor used to go in the front cover, and a balancer from a Gen-1 350 (6.75") with a keyway (and a key).

Might be some other stuff that I can't remember right off hand. Mike Mavrigian's book on LT1/LT4 motors has the info, although it's scattered throughout the book.
