it should bolt right in but u might need a new driveshaft, could be a bit too long

if the drive shaft is too long it can be shortened instead of buying a new one ,if it were too short than it would have to be replaced. it cost me about 50 bucks to have a drive shaft cut down about an inch. it cost about 250-300 for a new one.

there's no reason 2 modify the driveshaft b cuz it will fit with thebig blocc.

yeah im not saying u need a whole new one, just saying that what u have might not work....ive heard that the driveshaft will fit, but be prepared because everything else will be fine....i'd hate to get excited about dropping a new engine, then go to hook up the driveshaft and have it not fit

engine swaps are all about solving problems,yes the bigger block will fit,then you have fiqure out what radiator,exhaust manifolds,and what rear end to make it perform the way you expecting,long and short is are you good at solveing problems,better yet you can buy an inexpencive book and see if this is the way to go for you...............aaacar
