My questions are- #1- where do I find some high performance parts for this engine? #2 what vehicle would have motor mounts to use for this swap? I need to find a good high lift cam with a lopey idle and all forged components for the bottom end. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated
Here is a page that has a lot of info that will be useful to you. Several Cadillac engine parts sources are listed at the bottom of the page.

Good luck.
