I have been fascinated with Nova's since i was a kid, My dad was an original owner of a 70 ss .. Well im trying to follow in his footsteps even thought the Son of a B left my mom when i was 3! Enough of the boring stuff. I have a 72 Nova which i just bought last week ( even though ive had a nice roller in my garage for the last 2 years) I just dropped it off at the body shop. I bought a BB 396 w/turbo 400 2 years ago that ready to drop in, this nova had a 350/350 in it. I wanna know other than BB springs and New radiator w/ electric fans is there any other issues im gonna run into. will the stock driveshaft work . The rear is a 10 bolt posi with 3:73 gears. Is there any gurus that live in the inland Empire that can help a first timer.

Welcome to the site.

Check out the 3rd gen section for any tips you may need to convert your car to a BB. If it's not available with a search just ask and we'll guide you to the answer.
driveshaft is good
you'll need a 400 yoke
offset frame mounts from 69-70 BB
offset cross member from 69-70 BB
Mounts will be needed for exhaust clearance on the driver's side.
