Just had cam lobe on 283 go bad so i have decided to buy a Blueprint 350/375hp vortec engine and be done. Looks like i am going to have to change the Intake,and flywheel due to vortec heads and one piece rear main. I had a short water pump so all my pulleys are for that so will go back with short water pump. Have CPP power steering pump which mounts to front engine mount.

1. Should i replace the CPP mount with Alan Grove 404L front mount which gets rid of the adjustment bracket going to water pump. CPP also interferes with ALT belt.

2. Should i go to side motor mounts. Have t-10 4spd trans with a rear cross member already installed.

3. Best alternator bracket? have the bracket that mounts to exhaust manifold and long arm the alternator is adjusted with. (hate it)

4. Anything i am missing?

Just wondering if someone has done this and can provide suggestions.

Thanks in advance for any help

sasnak....Do you have a link to this engine? I'd like to take a look at it

Does not the engine come with an intake and flywheel?
