Nope. This is because the LT1 is reverse cooled. The coolant passages are different. They can be prepped to fit a gen 1 SBC, but it's not really worth it. Just get yourself a set of L98 113 aluminum corvette heads.

Well, yes and no. The Vette heads are awesome heads with a little work done to them. If you don't want to do any work, you could just get yourself a nice set of Trickflow heads for a few hundred bucks more the price of prepping a set of LT1 heads to fit the L98. And the aftermarket heads would have more potential.

if you are going to look at the aftermarket for heads, then look at the AFR's or Edelbrocks. The Trick Flows are good, however if you ever break a part of decide to freshin them up, well, you have to get there stuff nobody else's stuff works. Also, depending on which set of Trick Flows you get, you may have to get a new set of pistons, due to the chamber design.
