Pros and cons of LT1 in 70 GMC

I have found a 97 camaro with LT1 and auto tranny wrecked for $1600. What are the good points and bad points of putting this combo in my 70 GMC SWB stepside?
What would it take to do the swap if I decide to do it?
I am also thinking of a crate motor and built 2004r combo. Which would be easier and or cheaper?
Thanx, Krue

I'll bite....The newer LT1 motors are great. The only downfall is the $$$$. Computer.....wiring harness....blah blah blah.... but it looks like you got it all if you got the car for $1600. You might only need to add a harness and can get those for a few hundred. It will be custom to your application. Crate motors are dirt cheap nowadays.....I can get 350 horsepower from the local engine builder in an intake to pan package for $2000.00. A rebuilt 200R4 might be $700-$1200.......

In one of the truck or car mags there is an advertisement for a company that builds the wiring harnesses and computer (I think the computers are included) for putting an LT1 into different applications. I'll see if I can dig that up and post it on here.
