Wouldn't dream of it. Are you talking new or used? 4 speed I assume?

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

The T56 would be strong enough and a great choice.

I just don't know about Ford Big block Bell housing compatability. If you have a setup for an auto then you will need to find a bellhousing and flywheel for the bigblock. They probably aren't so easy to find as most will have had autos behind them, then you will need to perhaps adapt it to suit the T56.

Perhaps some performance shops may sell a new setup all suited to the T56.
