    after talking with some friends i think i'm going to pull the LT1 and sell it, a friend will sell me a carbed 355 for $500 and i can throw that in so i at least have something fun to drive all summer and save till winter and do the 5.3 or 6.0 swap.

    Sounds like an expensive step backwards... I would think by the time you swapped in the 355, you could probably have your 5.3... Do a little searching and you could have a 5.3 crate for ~$5-600, with harness, ready to bolt in... I think with the crank spacer, your LT1 T56 would bolt right up.. fuel would be easy.. stock LS1 engine mounts should be easy to find. A little searching, and some elbow grease, and you can make the harness a standalone...

    Of course everyone has their own ideas, but I think the 355 might end up be a bigger pain...

    thanks for the input. i agree, and now that i got the LT1 running (ended up being the fuel pump relay) and i can hopefully drive the car when i want to i'm not trying to swap it as quickly. i just hate this LT and hate that i have no trust in the car making it home if i take it out. i'm going to search for a 5.3, hopefully i can find one in the $500 range and i'll snag that up and start piling swap parts.

    Found a 4.8 for $400, any reason i shouldn't grab it? 103k and comes with manifolds, i would then source a LS1 intake for it.

    Lt1 t56 is not a bolt in for an ls1.

    correct, i'll either have to swap out the input shaft and front cover or find a LS T56. i'll probably just convert mine over because id imagine it's cheaper than selling one and finding another.

    need to get a K-member, LS1 spindles (so i can run CTSV brembos), the LS trans conversion stuff, and intake manifold, and i'm sure a lot more. time to start saving for parts.
