Precautions ???

Im planning on putting a 420 horse in a 1978 Monte Carlo, is there any steps I should do, can a car frame like that hold up with that much power.
Do I need to chain the motor down ?. Thanks For Any responses

That is not an unreasonable amount of HP.You won't have to modify the frame.Its when you get into big inch high torque big blocks that you stand a chance of twisting the frame.I recommend some good polyurethane motor mounts.
