I'm starting a small to big block conversion to my 69 camaro. I know I'll have to change springs and heater core, but what other things am i going to run into bolting it down in the car. Will the BB bolt to the small block stands and work. I'm also converting the previous TH350 to an M-21 muncie that the car originally came out with. What kind of Trans crossmember problems will I have. It would be a lot easier to know this than to swing that bad boy off in there and go UH-OH two or three times before it's right. Thanks for any help!

You need correct frame mounts and motor mounts. BB crosmember and clutch linkage BB heater box. Headers they are the worst problem. If I remember correctly that is all but I think my brain shuts down when I even consider that swap again.
