BTW, also in the tech files, there is an article that shows you how to custom wire up your fans. i'm not sure if you'd have to do that or not... don't know how hard it would be to make your fans work with the LT1 CPU.
It would be easyer to put back in a carbrated motor... just depends on what you want in the end. Check out Hawksthirdgenparts.com for more info.

The above link is to a thread on 3rdgen board on doing a top end swapie: intake and heads from LT-1 GenII on a GenI. This gets you the best of both worlds. Be warned the heads do require some mods to to work mostly with the coolant flow and intake mods for a conventional distr. :twocents:
