There is a video on youtube that talks about the retrofit and while he chose to go carburated the FI should not be that much different. LS will open doors that exceed beyond the expectations you have right now, there are cams for sale now that allow the swap to happen without a spring change being necessary and claim 66hp.
I need to get a straight answer from the guy first. Lol He's hesitant to sell it. Once he found out I was serious he backed off a bit. But I'm pretty sure come Christmas time he'll come off it.

Yeah I want to stay 700r4. I figured there was an adapter that might retain stock mounts/locations. Thanks for making me fully aware.

The L98 doesn't have my loyalty I should say. It's quick. But for the rest of the cars capability the L98 is the limiting factor I feel like. The car is so much more capable than I am as a driver. In a CB I can push the limits and can drive one really pretty well. In comparison this car here is pretty wild. But then I'm reminded that by today's standards the C4 is relatively mild. Outdated technology mostly. Still though for a middle working class guy like me it's really fun. I enjoy it.

Either one will make power, like i said the L98 is a roller 350 with factory aluminum heads and a restrictive Intake system; think of the L98 as the H22 of the Chevy world and the LS as the K series. Parts for 350s are abundant and a stupid amount of combinations have been done thru the years with relatively cheap parts, the LS has more potential at higher prices and come with bragging right once dropped into anything much like K swaps. It just boils down to what you want powering your machine, either way i can guarantee you will not be dissapointed. PS as somebody who once went down that road, the TPI would be the first thing to go if you really want to wake the thing up.
