I'm gonna say no, because the LT5 motor is also a dual over head cam motor, If I'm not mistaken.

Nope, there's no way. You have to understand that the LT5 shares NOTHING in common with the other LT motors. The LT1 is based off the original small block. The LT5 was a brand new from the ground up design.

It would be like trying to bolt Ford heads on a Chevy engine.

Supposedly Arao Engineering makes a Dominion head, 4V, bolt on for LT1's. I say supposedly because a couple of people have tried, but none have actually gotten it running, to my knowledge.
