The '68-'74 Nova has the same front suspension & steering setup as a '67-'69 Camaro, and certain models of those cars were available with big-blocks from the factory. The higher-capacity truck-type pans may interfere with the steering, but I don't think you need a notched pan like the pre-'68 Novas need. See if this one looks like it's what you need: http://www.sdpc2000.com/catalog/918/...rt-Oil-Pan.htm

The big-block versions from the factory used motor mount systems that located the engines a little farther to the right than small-blocks, and the transmission crossmembers have the mount bolt holes a little to the right, also.

I dont thank the 1973-74 nova is the same as a 1967-69 camaro. the subframe changed with the body in 1973. The 1968-72 nova is a frunt steer the 73-74 nova have the rear steer........In a frount steer the center steering link is in frount of the crossmember. in a rear steer the center sterring link is in the back of the crossmember .
I do like the idear of moving the engine over a little for header clearence.

I have to disagree with you. the 68-74 nova has the same subframe as the 67-69 camaro. All novas of that year range are rear steer.
