Hi Guys:

I am thinking about dropping a 5.3 Vortec that I have in place of the inline 6 in my 72 nova. I would appreciate some guidance about few questions that I have:
- Engine mounts? Is there a difference between L6 and V8 SBC engine mounts? There are LS engine mount adapters but they are all labeled for SBC not L6. Can I use late 70s clamshell SBC engine mounts?
- Is there any difference between I6 and V8 SBC cross members.
- Does a Camaro LS oil pan will clear the cross member?
- Any header recommendation with good clearance?

Thanks,
