First let me say I AM A FORD GUY! I have a friend (and I say that loosly) w/ a 79 camaro who is trying to decide between two motors for his car. choice two is a 502 crate motor. The question is what mods have to be made to fit the 502 in? Will the hvac box interfere? Or will it have to be notched for header clearance or removed. Will a 700r4 trans. bolt up to a bb?

should work just fine and you should be able to bolt a 700 to it but it wont last long.

Yea, that was my thought on the trans. My biggest concern is clearance issues as to whether header clearance to hvac was a problem. Or if there were any other mods that would have to be made?

A much better OD trans that will bolt up to the BBC is the 200-4r. It has a much better gear spread Vs the 700-R4.
Plus its about the same size as a 350 turbo.
