    Post Hemi to chevelle engine swap


    I am looking at getting a 69 chevy chevelle and am wanting to put in a 540 hemi with electronic fuel injection and dual turbochargers. And was wanting to know what would be the best transmission and suspension set up for this. I am able to do all the work and modifications in a buddies garage. so please let me know.

    the GM A body frame will not lend it self to the hemi oil pan. the cross member will get in the way and thats just a start steering is going to get in the way as well if a 10.720 deck block is going to make alot of work of this .less you own the engine try a bbc
