i think he will regret it,no gas millage and every time something breaks-it cost big bucks-your suppose to go low and slow anyways :cool:[/b][/quote]
lol expensive, used to do italian cars, thats expensive everything had to come from italy. gas really isnt a factor, its not going to be a daily driver. and low and slow, just means i dont push down on the gas as hard :puffin:

just wondering if there were any mods i needed to do to the motor mounts or have to reconfigure anything else :confused:

Save your money! You'll need it in the future!

If you put that 454 in your ride and plan on keeping it, get ready to have to spend on a heavy duty tranny, rear end, possible driveshaft, and for safety a disc brake conversion would make sense.
The torque from a bigblock normally puts more stress than usual on your old drivetrain that was designed for a smallblock. So just popping in a 454 and mashing around town usually won't last long.
I threw a 383 stroker small block in a ride that had so much torque that I had to replace drivetrain parts.

Goodluck!

just take the motor mounts off the 350 and if they are good put them on the big block, you might need a different oil pan to clear the center link
