What transmission are we talking about. The folks here need all the details to answer your question accurately. Sounds like a fun project. Better plan on upgrading your suspension while your at it.

a chevy v-8 will not fit that trans. buy you can replace the whole trans with the v-8 trans. (belhousings and input shafts are different)

swap

i may be wrong, but if i remember right, the 2.8 is a 60* v6, so you will have to change to a v8 trans. depending on how hot your 454 is, the stock 7004r is an ok choice.
