Hey guys,
I have a goofy question for you, I'm putting a 454 in my SS396 car, it has the electronic ignition, as I recall on the small block 69 I have the guy had beat the damn firewall in to get the thing to fit...will I need extra clearance on the big block car as well?? I need to find out fast since I have already shaved the firewall, and about ready to paint, so if I'm going to have to modify it I need to do that now....thanks in advance guys!! you are the best!

If you have the correct BB motor mounts and stands, you WILL NOT have to modify your firewall. If you have any other mounts in there other than the correct ones, you very well may have clearance issues. Do a search on the subject, it's been discussed at length numerous times........KZ
