The thought has crossed my mind.

We need to see how the LT1 fits first. The LS engine have the rear face of the cylinder head much closer to the bellhousing face than a traditional Chevy. In some bodies, installing an LS with the bellhousing in the same place as a Chevy means that the LS heads hit the firewall.

So we'll need to get the Chevy installed in order to see how much further forward, if any, the LS would have to sit.
