You might get it to go in, but the computer controls to make it run will be very daunting not to mention the special mounts, fuel system modifications, transmission adaptions, etc. Personally I would not even attempt it.

Yes, I believe it will. Im not sure about the knock sensor or the crank sensor. Im sure it would be an easy job too aside from the time consuming job of part swapping and sensor swapping. If both are EFI then for sure it will fit.

The only major thing to pay attention to with 460 engines are the dates of manufacture. Early models up to???1978??? or so, used internally balanced crankshafts and use flywheel or flexplates for those years. Later models use a hevy add on weight behind the vibration dampener and a hefty chunk of metal on flexplates and appropriate flywheels for those years. If you make a mistake between the 2 and you start it up but it shakes excessively(oh yes you will notice it!!) then you mismatched front balance weight or wrong balanced parts at rear of engine. Swap em out.

you cant simply use the balance weight on front of engine and then use the older balanced flywheel.....will vibrate!!!!! use year specific parts!!!!! engine blocks are identical. Crankshafts...different.
