I have done it on my 67 camaro,the crossmember needs to be moved back,the driveshaft needs to be shortened i found the wright one in a junk yard the th 350 yoke works,and i installed a wire kit from painless,its easy 2 wires but you do need the kickdown cable for your shift points that i found out the hard way,its not to hard but its worth it ,i have a 305 tpi 14 second car,and my buddy has a 11 second 406 69 camaro i wave when i go buy him on the highway and gas station.
