Default 1984 corvette swap

I was looking into doing a engine swap in an 84. I was wondering if there are any motors that are more or less a direct swap. Or is there companies that sell kits for other motors, like an lsx swap. I'm interesting in doing a swap but don't have the tools or most technical know how to do fabrication work.

if you don't have tools or knowledge on how to do it, your best source would be if you can find a kit to accomplish what you want where it includes everything. 2d option would be to hire someone to do it.

I agree I was looking for some kits. That's why I want to know if theres a direct swap. I meant I don't really have tools for cutting and welding the frame, things lf that nature.

You might want to check out Chevrolet.com/Performance. They're boasting you can power an older car with the current LT1 engine, so they may just happen to have kits. Definitely worth a look in your case.

If you plan to shoe-horn a new motor into your '84 Just remember that the '84 was the ONLY C4 produced with a COLD-AIR INDUCTION HOOD Thats ram- air built into the hood you cut a hole at the front edge of the radiator and seal it with some weatherstripping
