you should upgrade the whole drive train , that bigger motor is going to tear up everything it powers ,you're going to have your share of problems

thanks for your input, I know my c6 on the 351 wont fit, I have the c6 that came with the 429 have to get some work done to it, I have a 9in rear with true track possi, the 351 has 450 horse, put full frame in car, did real good at the track, now iam going to 600horse 429 trying to find out if the mounts on the frame will fit the 429 iam going have to go one step at a time.
