Mounts & headers are the biggest issues, assuming your running an M engine now. Cooling system can be a concern, as well as fan clearance.

I've had success with L&L in the past.

or you can get a pair of mounts for a 390, they will drop right into place and I have yet to tear them out and I run 500+ hp
