it will fit, but also a different sump, so you need to cut and weld the au alloy sump or cut and weld your k frame for clearence

Pretty much the entire motor is actually different - head, rocker gear, bottom end, sump...
You'll need to swap in your dizzy, bottom bellhousing bolts wont line up unless you use an AU housing... sump or K frame cut n shut, use your BBM and sensors, AU alternator and bracket so you dont need to tap any bolt holes.. ehh you'll work it out lol
