Default LT1/3 to LT5 Swap?

I'm currently looking for a project car, and what I really want is a 93-95 ZR-1, but I want to know, if it's possible to take another Corvette, and swap the engine with the ZR-1 engine of the same year, or are the dimensions of the engine mounts different?

I'm pretty sure the mounts line up... don't quote me on that... however, finding a complete donor LT5 isnt exactly an easy feat... you'd honestly be better off starting with a ZR-1 and going from there.

Engine bolts in. The cradle for the 92+ LT1 cars is the same as the 90-91 LT5 cars.

You will need several other parts to make the conversion. Let me know if you are serious. I’ve got a full drivetrain and all the other parts.
