Already have engine mounts welded to subframe for gen 1 v8, and have the kelmark adapter for the gen 1 to corvair diff.

Going with a modern block (LSX or otherwise) would require new adapter and new motor mount locations correct? I feel like the car is so close to drivable should press forward with gen 1, otherwise, its a longer term project and if were to change mount location and adapter, would be inclined to change diff and tranny as well.

Could I find the right bump stick for the 350/290 crate that put the torque down under 300, and still give me ~300+ horseys at 4-6k? Any recommendations?

Thinking 600-650 cfm carb, ram horn manifolds (the engine is in the middle of the car).
