When I get to the shop tomorrow yes I can, I didn’t touch the heater box or anything had to modify the drivers side firewall a bit for my headers to fit, I used regular stock gm motor mounts from advance and then I bought summit racing sbc old school clamshells ( that were expensive as hell and for word of advice how we modified the cross member we took it off the vehicle cut the piece off that bolts to the trans, turned it upside down and welded it and it bolted right up
