who ever said it wont work is a dumbass u have to look at clearence, bolt patterns, (will he bolt holes line up?) and will your wiring harness match up and if the harness does will the brain box still work or will u have to use the one from the old motor, this applies to all engine swaps i put my 302ci in my 84 but i had to use the dura spark 2 box and the truck has a dura spark 3 box on it. i just by passed it. its mostly easier if u are swaping on a car to just drop the h frame which is the entire front end, struts, shocks, motor and tranny all as one unit this takes at least two ppl. i have done this as well and i wont lie its time consuming.
