In my 73 chevelle laguna, would I need to modify to fit the 454 into the engine bay? Because its the same size car as the s3 model that has the 454. Can a 454 be dropped into my laguna that came with the 350. Its the same size as the s3 that had the 454.

Nice conversion. Did many of them. Yes, it will fit like a glove. You need the correct motor and transmission mounts, drive shaft, radiator and some colling line such as transmission for it to work but with the multiple mounting holes on the frame, it is easy to do.

You may need to change the front springs for the extra weight. Make sure you do up a trans to cover the extra power and a set of 3.73 gears will make that car fly.

Good luck
