    Im trying to put a 454 into my 69 el camino and was wondering if anyone knew what motor mounts I will need .and where to get them. If you have an suggestions or advice please let me know

(Mechanics have told me these fans are for a small block). After buying it I immediately noticed after 10 miles of triple-digit Phoenix...
