Absolutely nothing. It's just a SBC 350 w/fuel injection. Some had factory aluminum heads (F-bodies & Vettes), they also had a different cam and heads (iron heads) than the B-body LT1s had. The LS1 is vastly superior to the LT1, but it also cost more. The LS1 is lighter (aluminum block and heads) than an LT1 (iron block and iron or aluminum heads), the LS1 has much better aftermarket support than the LT1 has ever had, and the LS1 makes more power than the LT1 stock, so just imagine it with upgrades.
*LT1s also have one of the worst ignition systems known to man because the optispark distributor sits beneath the water pump. That was just terrible engineering. The picture in my sig the LT1 in my '96 9C1 Caprice; you can see the distributor behind and between the crank pulley and water pump.

Don't think so. I've seen a kit for a front mounted distributor on an LT1 but it was expensive. Honestly, I'd rather just buy a TPI kit for a regular SBC 350/400. I don't really like LT1s, but that's what came in my Impala SS and 9C1 Caprice.
