the 454 "should" be a direct bolt-in: motor mounts and bellhousing anyways.

wow i never actually considered that! damn. thanks for the idea! i was thinking about keeping the 383 and th350 and dana 44s to have when i build a jeep (in the long future) but reselling the k5 with my parts would def be worth it
