'78 C-20 454 to 350 Swap
Hey guys, i want to swap the 454 (going in a drag truck) for a 350 to daily drive, Its got a 400 turbo tranny, will i have any line up problems when dropping in the small block?, I know the motor mounts will line up but the tranny is what I'm wondering, any other issues I should know of?

Just the exhaust.
May need to get new radiator hoses and a radiator shroud for a small block with heavy duty cooling

The small block and big block are only different from the motor mounts forward. You shouldn't have any problems
