    I believe standard smallblock mounts will work. I had a crate 360 in my Satellite wagon years ago. Granted, it was a smallblock car so no adapters were needed...you may be able to just look for B/RB to LA adapter mounts for your application.

    Great motor, which one did you get? I had the 380hp version, and in my full-body, full-interior Satellite wagon I was running consistent low 13s on street tires and pump gas, with a 3.23 SG rear. Drove it daily, too...power brakes worked the first time you stepped on the pedal at a light, but that was all you'd get with that .288/.292, .513" cam!

    If your car is a factory small block car, you'l probably have the 273/318 to 340/360 "problem" of needing a spacer on the driver's side mount unless you can find 340 mounts.

    I've also seen where some grinding of the spool mount area may be required to mount those tuck engines in earlier passenger cars.

    Running stock i think it is 320 hp , thanks for the info . The ears for the mounts brackets are more toward the front of the motor . I see 3 threded holes toward the middle on the block . The LA conversion i got is for later model 360 Magnums . Was not a good match up .
