I have a 68 289 Coupe with a C4. I know someone who is selling a 351W complete with a C4. Can I fit that 351 in my coupe and if so what modifications do i need to make? Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. Thanks fellas.

It should be almost a bolt in...the mounts and bellhousing (if its a 68 tranny) should be the same

Keep an eye on the clearance between the hood and air cleaner because the 351 is a bit taller than the 302.

Because the 351 is a little taller, your exhaust may not reach anymore, but otherwise it should be almost a direct swap. I didn't have any hood clearance issues until I put a performer air gap on it.
