    Nope. The pan won't work. Check with Moroso, Canton, or Steph's. I think they all make one that'll work.

    Well . . one thing to think about is getting a 460 small block from World. Same displacement, but less weight. And, it's a lot easier to wedge it into the car.

    i belive that kit is for a fox body, with 5.0 mounts... have to be careful.

    if its the kit i'm thinking of, motor mounts wont work, and the headers wont fit right.
