I swapped a 454 into my 86 chevy truck and the only thing I had issues with was the power steering pump.
How complete is the BBC, did it come with all the stock bracketry for alt. , power steering. if it does not come with a flywheel you will need one of these as it is externally balanced.
Motor mounts are the same but I did install new solid mounts for my application.
and of course your exhaust will change a little due to bigger motor.
It sure is nice to have all those cubes under the hood.
