Please Help Me!!!!

I have a 66 Pontiac Tempest and am wanting to install a 350 sbc into it. I know a lot of people have done it, but what I am looking for is what specifically do I need to do? I set the block in the frame, and I need to move the engine forward about 3 inches because it is hitting the firewall. I have purchaed Moroso Solid mounts but there is still other things that I need to do. Any infor is deeply appreciated. I am at wits end and racing season is almost here. Thanks.

Moroso solid mounts will fit the proper frame mounts=GM reproducers can sell you the proper frame mounts ( V-8 Chevelle). Everything bolts in as the Tempest frame is the same as the Chevelle. You will need a Chevy trans or a simple adapter to the Tempest trans. I would go for a Chevy 350 Turbo as the Tempest two speed is S L O W. The rest is simple bolt on and shorten/lengthen wires, hoses, exhaust and linkages.
