    Best to look up some sites and info on the LT1 motor... the old impala forums i used to browse arent up anymore... of course that was in the early '00's when i was looking for one.... what color are you getting and how many miles?

    Ls1 tech is still your best bet... impala forums are honestly not that populated.

    +1 ... these days you can get a lsx swap done relatively inexpensive if you do the work yourself. There are actually engine mounts made for your car so you wont have to fab any.

    I'd love to have one of those, in that color too. First to do would be basic bolt-ons, cai, headers, and a good flowing exhaust, then gears, 1.6 roller rockers, then look at finding some aluminum LT1 heads and send them off to someone like lloyd elliott and have them worked on some and get a custom grind cam, and a good stall would be a very good idea too.
    don't worry, it has an opti, you'll win.

    Nice...

    For the Lt1, I'd say www.camaroz28.com is the premier source to go to... One of the oldest boards on the web(started in 1997) and has like 40k members.

    My dream car still :(. I have a 91 caprice sitting outside just getting rained on and ****. Hopefully one day i'll buy me a nice 95 9c1 or impala SS. Try getting some information at Impalassforums.com. That's the forum I go to for my Caprice needs.

    jack some from a dentist!

    Lt1 is a good motor. The one thing you will hear people bring up is the opti-spark, its different then most conventional ignition systems. Alot of peopel will say its the devil, but plenty of peopel have gone on for years without problems. Research it, it isn't that bad.

    Love the 96 SS. Only year that they made the column shifter. Car with low miles sitll brings in money over here. I know my dad shipped a couple when they first came out, to dubai back in 94. Ahh memories. We had a couple when i lived in Dubai in 95 and that was one of my favorite cars.
