    A 465 puts you at the same highway rpm as a 400 or 350 (maybe 1-200 less cause of torque convertor slipping)

    You need a 10 spline 205 most likely, or a 32. The one thats available to you wont work.

    You'll need a bell housing, clutch, manual linkage (or hydro parts) pedal, driveshafts

    Its not hard, just time consuming

    Do a search, it will, been covered many times...

    Rpms would be 2950 at 65.

    Thats a lil high but liveable and not far off from factory trucks with a 465 and 4.10:1's

    Mine wasn't even that time consuming... Literally finished the swap in two days once I had all the parts lined up.

    Was it worth it? Heck yeah! Standard is always better than a slushbox in my opinion!

    Though, I do have my eye on an NV4500 ;)
