LS Motor conversions

I hope this is the right place for this....
Anyone have any experience with putting an LS motor in an old pick-up?...
Planning on a 5.3 into a '59 F100......questions on engine location & angle; transmission not hitting the cross-member; exhaust dump missing the steering box/column,etc....
Any guidance, direction, etc is appreciated.
Thanks

There won't be a "kit" if that's what you're after. Best place for LS swap info is LS1Tech (dot com) in the swap section...
