I have a 95 firebird with a LS1 350. It runs rough so the other day I brought it in for a check and the result was the water pump leaks and it has ruined the distributor. Both need to be replaced. My question is how hard would it be to change my engines system to distributor-less, how much it would cost for me to do or hire it out and what I would have to buy or who could I hire closest/most dependable to Bangor Maine. Any info anybody has will most likely be light years ahead of what I know!

oops respond to daveee also I was under the wrong impression for a long time that I had a LS1 motor in fact I believe it is a LT1.

Yes, that would be an LT1. Golen Engine Service is in New England, they might be able to point you in the right direction in terms of an installer. Here are two options, the second of which is more ideal for a complete overhaul, and would make your car more friendly to most late model GM shops. The first is more cost effective in terms of parts and labor, and is much quicker.

LTCC $400
Plug wires $65
Used LS1 coils $160
Sun Spec Billet coil brackets $150

EFI Connections complete plug n play kit $2,360
