Johns has both regular SBC kits (including LT1) and LSX kits. Here's a thread that discusses the regular SBC kit.

It is definitely different than the JTR setup.

If you're interested, I still have pics of the JCR LT1 kit in my gallery. I ended up using the JCR T56 mount but not the engine mounts. The end result was that the motor was placed in between the location of the JTR and the Scarab locations. When used with the T56, the shifter came out too far forward - under the front of the dash. I'll be selling my engine mounts and some of the misc pieces here in the next few weeks. One thing to say for the JCR kit, it's a nice piece of work! Everything fits very nicely and doesn't have to be pieced together. The JCR manual leaves a lot to be desired. Overly brief and vague - not a good first timer. I had to re-read the JTR manual before I could figure out the JCR instructions.

 

But that may be just me.... :)
