I agree, I like the LS series engines myself, they have a deadly quiet operation, but carry a big stick.

Sorry if that was my bad. I`ve eye balled LT1`s in the junkyard and thought seriously of adapting one in my 92 chevy pickup, the other thing that bothers me about it is setting it up for reverse flow cooling, then figuring out the maze with the Air Conditioner routing. But, it would be nice to have the stock LT1`s horsepower and drivibility.

Yea, but an LQ9 complete drive train is so cheap lately. If you're going to swap you may as well go all the way. I don't understand why some people are asking $500+ for a LT1 when 300 more gets you a complete LS series drivetrain.

That "class project" engine should be archived in either the Car Craft (most likely) or Hot Rod sites. It did have a custom chip, I remember then saying, but do not recall who did the chip, though. It was one of the well-known sources, though. In any event, there have been scads of LT1 builds written about through the years.

There are also forums that deal w/the LT1 almost exclusively:

www.ls1lt1.com
www.lt1engine.com
www.ls1tech.com

Others that have forums dedicated to the LT1:
www.camaroz28.com
www.z28.com
http://www.camaroforums.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=9
www.fbody.com
www.speeddensity.org
http://forums.corvetteforum.com/engi...81161-lt1.html

Go nuts!
