Putting a 460 in a 1970 Mach 1

Hi
Hope someone can help me out a bit; there seems to be a lot of knowledgeable people here.

I'm putting a 460 in a 1970 Mach 1. I'm told it's possible. Well anything is possible. I got the car with no engine in it, found a 429 in parts and rebuild it to a 460. I got some engine mounts that should make this possible. But I’m not really sure what problems I’ll run into.

I knew I would run into problems with the headers, and I did. I'm having a hard time making the ones I have ( I believe the are stock) fit. And I’m not sure how the C6 will line up. So here are some questions that I have so far.

Anyone got a assembly drawing of the drive train, I'm unsure how the C6 aligns with the cross beam (as mine doesn’t have one, yet)

Any hints on headers that will fit on this thing. I think it will run into steering worm (is that what you call it?)

If anyone has ever done this I would love to hear a bit about their experience on this.

Sorry it the English is poor. English isn’t my first language, since I’m from Norway :)
