Only if there's room for them. Seriously, that's too much power & torque for that car without some HD mods to the chassis/frame. A 350 is a better choice, in my humble opinion. Have some aspirin on hand, and good luck.

It will fit within the frame, but you'll have to do some work on the firewall, it may not clear the distributor or the tranny.
