The driveshaft will have to be shortened. The yoke is differerent. And the mount is 6-9/16" further back. I know the 1st gen. Camaros had a different crossmember, making the swap a bolt in with the proper driveshaft. That crossmember or possibly one specifically for a Nova would be the way to go. The bell housing bolt pattern is the same. While you have it apart, I would install the appropriate aftermarket flex plate (cheap insurance) and a converter to match your engine and driving application. I think you could build a 350 to stand up to the abuse. The advantage would be quicker et's. The down side would be more frequent refreshing and a greater chance of breakage. The 400 is a tough unit.
