*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.

I heard frm a fee people that u can put the distributor in the bak of the lt1!
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.
