Looking for info on what would be required to swap 351w for a cummins or powerstroke. I know it won't be easy will need to highly modify vehicle but just wanting info about cost and what to expect.

I've seen a duramax in a 75 cutlass, so I'm guessing it would be a similar situation

Seen a Cummins in a Chevelle and they're the same size. 


However you would need to do the following, section the fire wall and recess engine (too much weight in front of axle centreline if not) 

Brace frame (heavy things, more so than a 385)

Custom sump as they're a tall engine

Custom turbo manifold for clearance 

Adapter to TH400/C6 or run the Alison
