what year is your lt1. mine is a '95 and has the vented optispark. those are supposed to be much better for keeping moisture out. the only way i've heard to convert is to run a carb and distrib goes through the normal spot at the rear of the intake manifold. don't know if you can mod the stock manifold to take a older distrib. there is the drive for the oil pump back there, but it uses a shaft that doesn't come up out of the manifold. what is the reason you want to swap it?

wow, that is all new info to me. and i researched the hell out of this engine too. of course i wasn't looking for that swap either. disregard my info. :rolleyes:
