    Going to go look at a 95 LS swap in person, possibly this weekend. Just wondering what you all would make sure is legit and intact before making this guy an offer? Don't wanna buy a bunk swap. <_< I know the whole compression test routine, but I'm gonna be replacing the rods/pistons eventually, and possibly resleeving. Just a block # or the engine code stamp? and tranny tips? Thanks.

    check the oil. its a good test of how long its been sitting. the longer, the worse in most cases.
    look for corosion on sensors
    cracked plugs
    cracked distributors
    etc
