Definitely go with the LT1. Once it's in there, you'll wonder why you even questioned it. I had an 87 Firebird with a 305ci. in it that blew it's head gasket and decided to throw a small block 400 in it instead of fixing the 305ci. I painted it black so it would look just like the origional. The only visible diference really was the harmonic balancer. That engine surprised so many people. Once I took it to a shop to get the brakes worked on and when they test drove it after the work was done, they got a ticket for roasting the tires at a light. He said that he didn't even put his foot on the gas pedal. He wanted to know what year that 305 was... HAH! Trust me... go with the bigger engine.

LS1 are cheap and you can run 750 hp on the stock bottom end, they are all pro.

Dunno which engine is lighter, but the LS1 can put out more power. And, that's the only deciding factor for me!

It shouldn't matter too much where it came from. I got my small block 400 from a van and it was awesome. I did rebuild it and put a nice cam in but, still... power is power.
