The LS and LT accessories are completely different. The pcms I think are different also. You'll need the wiring harness for the truck and need to modify it to plug into the camaro.

The easiest route to go would be to get all the Fbody parts (i.e.- PCM, Harness, oil pan, FEAD, intake, and exhaust) and then just bolt the 4.8 in like its an LS1. The long block is interchangable but that is about it.
