you will also need a bigger engine bay to make the engine fit.

Will fit in existing engine bay,Has been done. From memory the AU didnt like the extra weight from the boss motor and made it a nose heavy pig to drive. Stick with a stroked 302 much easier conversion in the long run.

Hmm, ok proven wrong, Thanks Heath.

Maybe it was the quad cam that didn't fit too well, and yeah heavy as hell compared to a stroked 302.

Take it out to 347ci. and a good top end combo, it will out perform the G220 motor everyday of the week, and maintain reliability as well.

What kind of power does the 347ci produce?

If you have the right components, it can easily produce enough to split the block.
