Hi guys I am looking to put 290 Boss into 72 XA, I noticed there was a few guys online that had a few comments on there. Anyone who could give me information, just looking for general information would be helpful

Hi mate , sounds like a good project,I remember reading that theres a problem with headers to suit the boss in a X-series -they need to hug the block more or they'll be hitting on the shock towers,hopefully someone can give you some better information on this,cheers Johnny.

Defiantly sounds like a good project, kinda off topic i remember hearing that the turbo 6 needed the shock towers notched or something to fit it all in also
