671 Blown LT1, looks sweet!!! One question though.

Im wanting to do this with a small single carb blower & seeing how im all ready running a carb setup the only question I have is about the bolt pattern...What did this guy have to do to mate the blower manifold to the LT1 heads..How different is the bolt pattern from the LT1 heads and the old school heads? Go hear to read all about the only 671 blown LT1 I have ever seen..

It's hard to tell in the picture, but I bet he's using old-style heads with the conventional intake manifold bolt pattern. It's not too hard to modify them to work with the LTx cooling system.

Looks like there's a plug in the front coolant crossover passage hole on the driver's side. I believe LT1/4 heads were the only ones that had those.

Right, but it also looks like the intake manifold bolt that's visible is perpendicular to the gasket surface. The LTx is pointed more upward than that.

There's something very screwy about his LT1. This is the engine from the T-bucket:

Take a close look at the intake manifold bolt hole locations, namely the middle two.

Now, look at the middle two bolt holes in this LTX head:

Here's the two styles side-by-side:

It may be an LT1 block, but there's something funny going on with his heads. They are NOT OEM production LTX heads because they do not have the correct intake manifold bolt pattern and angle.

Yeah, I can tell you whats screwy. He had the middle four bolt holes filled and new ones drilled for the old style manifold to bolt on. Thats what you have to do to bolt a blower onto a LT1.

Actually, all 6 bolts on both heads are different locations and angles.

I think your wrong. I say Exact same angle and JUST the center holes are different. Nothing like a hack job arguing with mechanical engineer. can you show me proof?

Dude, I have a spare set of AFR LT4 heads, a single SBC Iron Eagle head, and a Victor-EFI intake that's drilled for both patterns all in my shop. The angle of ALL holes is different between SBC and LTX. All holes, except front-most and rear-most, are in different locations also. Trust me - I just looked at them to be absolutely sure.
