Any engine you want. Engine mounts are pretty easy to get from a local machine shop, but I would recommend using a 460 with 429 SCJ heads and plenty of other performance parts to make those wheels spin a little faster and with a little more torque. If you want a full list of parts, email me at jamesandrewjohnson@yahoo.com. Good luck.

could you send me a parts list for installing the BBf. I have a 460 with the alum cobrajet heads with roller cam. And also have 351/408. Never thought the 460 would fit. Give me some imput.
thanks, Mike
