Re: carb LT1 swap parts

After doing the LT1 carb swap I would suggest having your heads re-drilled for the gen 1 sbc bolt pattern, this really helps as far as intake selection which is huge. Also just have a shop weld your opti hole shut or you can measure it and find a freeze/oil galley plug that has a press fit use that try to stick with a 0.002-0.003" press fit and use RTV and you should be good.
