Does anybody have any advice for me on converting to a 455. I currently have a 350, but it just doesnt seem to be enough. Any problems that anybody has had to deal with with this kind of swap?

if you are going to put the 455 into a 68-72 car, you will need to change the frame mount pads first. you can keep your transmission that will help alot. next thing up would be the exhaust, stock manifolds fit just fine, but you will need new exhaust. for the belts and hoses just go to a part store and ask them for the correct ones. all of the brackets from the small block will bolt up to the big block. i think thats it but there might be some other things, <P>go to <A HREF="http://www.buickperformance.com" TARGET=_blank>www.buickperformance.com</A> they should have something on it.
