Similar to what Hawkeye is doing with his 5.3 project other than the blower taking up more space. (If that helps at all)

For a sec there I thought we were cloned!biggrin Hmmmm 6.2? Afraid that I'm going to beat you? If thats a 4l80 you will have to do a lot of trans tunnel mods. Can be done but a s@#$ load of work. Put my motor in place in Nov and still working on it. If going this route make sure you get the ECM with motor and trans. I think the 4l80 has it's own computer that has to talk to the ECM so don't think you can swap to a 4l60. Can be done but like I've said it's a ton of work and everything has to be changed. Prob about the same as a crate motor if you were going new everything anyway. Think that if not running that trans would have to buy a ECM for non 4l80 motor but not 100%. But IT SURE WOULD LOOK GOOD IN THERE!!

Here's a link to a guy that put that set up in a '66 Chevelle. Not the same I know but food for thought. Lots of good reading.

I would think the first mod would be an aftermarket front sub frame just for clearances.
