Can I pull this off
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
what will I need. I have the motor and transmission

Sure, you will need all the hardware from the 460 of the other vehicle, that's basically it.

I believe the frames are the same so all the bolt holes shouls already be there for the motor mounts too.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
