I'd carefully study those 2nd gen Camaro pics and see if you can get an idea of where they are as far as height. My hunch is that the LS and the Pontiac engines are very close to the same height. Oil pan choice and intake choice might be critical for you. Also, the 1" setback mounts everybody runs might screw up the shaker too.

I had hood clearance issues in my G body because (1) I'm using a dual plane (Performer RPM) intake (2) I'm using the stock, truck oil pan and (3) I have a giant air cleaner assembly. I needed a 1" cowl hood.

I would just do the swap and if the shaker was so important, get the adjustable set mounts, from there figure out height and get the desired intake and a spacer if needed, seems pretty simple.
