    i'd love to do it to mine but anyway one or two people i think have done it on here ( don't think they log on much though ) you'd have better luck on the LS1 forums and also why convert it to carby??

    Castelmain rod shop do a kit, the biggest prob is that the starter is on the drivers side. You will either need to get a set of custom extractors made or spend the $1600 and buy the starter motor kit that swaps it over to the pass side... also avail from Castlemain rod shop.
    Leave the injection on it. You will get more power, increase driveability,cheaper, and even better economy.
    There is a tone of places out there that can reprogram the ecu for you.

    I would expect that conversion to cost you upwards of $15k to $20k. I hope you have deep pockets.
