    BOP bellhousing needed though...or an adaptor. Good torque anyways so it is prolly worth it if it runs well.

    Why not just find a 350 Chevy that will bolt right in and use all of your accessories? They are very easy to come by and can be had cheap, especially needing a rebuild. If you go with the Buick 350 you will also have to fab custom motor mounts. Just my $.02
