Just to comment, very few GM V8 engines are all aluminum.  According to 
some sources I have read the Audi V8 is actually lighter than the cast 
iron block 5 cylinder.  I know the LT1 is iron block, but I don't know 
much about the LS1.  Used to be the only Al GM V8 was a small 
displacment Buick engine that also came in Land Rovers for a while.  
This however would be older than your I-5.

Like someone else said with all the "other parts" you would probably 
want to go with aftermarket fuel injection or find a donar car (or both).

If you settle on something and move forward document it so the rest of 
us can experience it.

Good luck.
