lt1 swap in 02 v6 camaro

Has anyone swapped an lt1 into a 98 to 02 body style camaro/firebird? I'm in the process of doing this and its honestly mind boggling, currently have the lt1 drive train mated to the v6 camaro chassis, with engine harness, I didn't consider taking the harness out from under the dash from my old 94 trans am, so what im working with is the 02 camaro dash harness to mate up to the 94 lt1 harness, has anyone done anything similar? I need some advice/pointers, anything that could help with my situation.

Thanks in advance.

dude. You are trying to put an OBD1 engine into an OBD2 Chassis. On top of that, the 02 v6 is a drive-by-wire throttle, so there's no throttle cable on the gas pedal, just a wiring harness.

Hate to say it but at this point, you're looking at a standalone ECU and wiring harness (least of all the gas pedal) if you want this to work. There is not a quick, easy, or cheap solution. All solutions are time consuming, difficult, and expensive. You shot yourself in the foot by not grabbing the wiring out of the 94.

And as far as I'm aware, if you want to convert the chassis to the OBD1 config, it HAS TO BE a 1994 camaro or firebird as the donor. 1993 or 1995 will not work.

I'm all for pioneering engine swaps, but a 94 LT1 into an 02 v6 body is just ludicrous without the complete body and dash wiring conversion from the 94.

I don't know about your state, but in Pennsylvania it's actually illegal to swap an older engine into a newer car.

That is actually a Federal Law, so, in all States.
