What would I need to swap an LS1 to an LS7?

I got an 02 Z28 with a blown LS1 and saw that the Ls6s have the same block. I've seen the price difference between the two engines but would I need a lot of other parts to go along with an LS6?

wait, ls6 or ls7? the ls1 is really just a factory souped up version of the ls1. if you want to drop in an ls6, pop out the ls1, pop in the ls6, get a tune. thats about it

Check the link in my signature for what all you need for an LS6 swap...I did one 9 years ago on my '98 Z28 and am still happy with it!
