2.8 to LT1 help needed.

I have a 1993 S10 with a 2.8L with a 5speed. It still runs and drives, but I also have a 1996 Z28 Camaro LT1 with 5 speed as well, not being used currently due to collision damage. I am wanting to put the LT1 with the tranny in the S10, what all would be required in order for this to be up and running? I am confused if the 2.8l motor mounts would work, or if they would need new motor mounts for the LT1 or if there is motor mounts that just bolt to the 2.8l motor mounts. Also as far as the transmission goes how would I convert it to fit in the correct spot for the s10 shifter hole? I read about the driveshaft and other things, but I havent found one discussion where anyone is doing anything similar to this, if there is one please link me to it. I am wanting to make this post and post updates as I go along, this will be my first ever swap of any kind so help is needed and appreciated Thank you

If it makes you feel any better, there is a handy search feature that works fairly well. There's multiple 2.8L to LT1 threads in here, and that's without going to the advanced search...

It's been gone through so many times it would be pointless for it to be rewritten again. Plus, a lot of the people who have done that swap aren't on the forums anymore.
Almost everyone in here daily drives a V8 swapped s10.
BS statement of the day right here. :ROFLMAO:
