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.
