    Default excellent lt1 and ls1 info links

    Rob/Shoebox has put together a technical data page that really rocks.... pictures of many of the parts that mystify people showing the locations, etc. And some great "how to" info...

    Take a look, and bookmark it for future reference.... sooner or later you are going to need it......

    Some other good sites for info on the 4th Gen F-Body:

    The first one is an excellent resource. I've used that one quite a bit.

    This is some good info for an LT car. I wish I would have had this before I started posting half a million questions on the Fbody Hideout page, lol.
