    The stock 350 small block just barely fits between the stock strut towers. No way in hell you're going to fit a big block without extensively modifying the chassis and body of the car.

    That 454 would be badass in a short wheelbase Chevy pickup.

    You could pick up a Monte Carlo SS fairly cheap, and drop it in there easily.

    I have a 86 short wide just don't wanna do it cuz of the weight, a little s-10 would be nice though. I can also get a 88 TA v6 cheaper insurence 1000 bucks, just dont like the front end.

And to me the monte carlo is to heavy, I also got a 67 chevelle that was the plan with the BB just can't wait to hurry an put it in somthing. Plus I don't wanna cut it up or anything cuz I have the original motor and trans.

    I don't know how much you think the Monte weighs, but my 86 SS with T-tops weighs the same as my Camaro vert. 3600, and with a big block, a couple hundred pounds is nothing.

    BMR makes a K-member for this swap. If you run a carb you need to cut the cowl a bit and run a higher hood scoop.

    I would drop it into a 3rd gen. I also have a 86 TA with a WS6 hood and it almost looks as good as 4 gen ws6ers. Pick one up for cheap.
