Just be aware that headers could be a problem. The heads are 0.400" further away from the block than on a conventional BBC, so off the shelf headers probably won't work. If you're using power brakes with a vacuum cannister on the firewall, it might be in the way of the driver's side valve cover, requiring moving the motor to the passenger side of the car by a small amount.

Here's a virtual build I did a while back that may interest you....
