If I read this right you're saying grayfix is an expert asshole?
Inquiring minds want to know. Hard to read his sentence but if he
knows what he's saying that's all that counts.

Dad, if I read his post correctly, Crabs actually said that Gayfox is
an expert Plonk asshole. In the Gay (Fox) community, I'm almost
certain that I recall Ric saying that the catcher is called the Plonk
asshole! Har, Har! Har! How does Ric know these things? He must be well

You didn't start a flame war, but the information you are looking for
gets more complex that I would expect to see someone write out in the
First off the LS1 Corvette LS1, bell housing, torque tube, and
transaxle are sort of a one piece unit. You will have to break them
apart and use just the engine attached to a Camaro/Firebird bell
housing and transmission. You will then need to hookup the LS1 to its
proper computer. Not a big deal but a substantial job at best for the
Actually I was acknowledging his graduate degree from the Max Plonk
Institute fur Gravitationsphysic in advanced black hole theory. His work
on reverse black holes, where in decaying organic matter extrudes from
rips in the space time continuum is cutting edge. He makes it look so
easy, that it's uncanny.

Where you need to go for the most accurate information on LS1s is here:
This site is the holy grail for LS1 owners, these guys know it all. If
it ain't in here, it probably doesn't exist.
SuperChevy is a good source for the kind of things you're going to need
to make the swap. Here's a link to a product guide.
Bottom line, yes it's possible to put a LS1 into a '85 'Vette.
Mechanically it does not look altogether that difficult, and there's
obviously enough room, after all, a v8 lived in there before.
It will require quite a few electronics mods. It'll need it's own engine
management system. Getting your 'digital dash' to work properly will
certainly be a big bag 'o fun, but more than likely do-able.
You will almost certainly need to make changes to the front suspension.
The LS1 is considerably lighter, therefore the handling characteristics
will be markedly different.

p.s., I apologize for my adverse reaction to a certain Mr. Fox. That guy
just rubs me wrong. Axle Rose said it best when he said "Every Rose Has
A Thorn", in the digital world it's "Every Newsgroup has a Troll"
Appeciate the info. Glad there is someone out there with some knowledge
and willing to share it. I'm new to this group and it's obvious there are a
lot of guys with to much time on there hands. I believe I will unsubscribe
from this one. No need to reply. Thanks again.
Bye the way, a few years ago I built a 33 Ford with a big block Chevy,
Accel digital fuel injection, and an 85 vette instrument cluster. Everything
worked on that project, so I believe I can handle this one. Just was doing a

After getting the info you requested you take your ball and go home mad?!?
Get your ass back in here and socialize a tad man. Ya ponce! :-)
Your LS swap is gonna be a right bitch to do, I've built several street rods
and that LS swap is gonna take a crash course in modern electronics, and
in particular GM electronics. And you better have a lathe, mill, plasma
mig/tig and a whole wiring station and support gear. But people do it.
But from what you would spend you could do a World Products all aluminum
Gen1 crate motor w/injection.
i was just wondering if you had problems with you 1985 vette, like start

die. this happens all the time now since it stalled one day. is it fuel
