I have an 85 Cutlass Supreme with a 68 Olds Rocket 350 with headers on it. I beleive I had to drop the engine in with the headers already in place on the car and then bolt them on when it was close. I know it was extremely tight, and I needed the help of some friends to hold them in place while I dropped it in. I used the original mounts from the 68 and had plenty of clearence for the hood. As far as the wiring I don't know what Your trying to keep but I replaced the idiot lights with gages and ripped out the computer. I then only needed a coulple wires for the sending units, coil, and starter. I don't know what your tring to bolt this to but I had to fabricate a new cross member to hold my tranny up (TH400) and have a new drive shaft made. Just some things to think about.
