I'm planning on replacing my tired AMC 360 with a rebuilt smallblock Chevy 350 from Blue-chips. While discussing this with a coworker,he suggested a bigblock 454. A 454??!! Will that even fit? Well,I guess that's my question. Besides the coupler and engine mounts,will I need anything else? Oh yeah,will it even fit? Thanks.

Talking

River beast,
That's almost exactly what I plan on doing,with the thottlebody fuel injection and all. Is there anyway I could talk to this guy and find out his opinions of his 454 with TBI??
Thanks a bunch for the link!
