If you have a bench seat, your shifter will be real close to hitting the seat while in reverse. IF you put the engine as far back as you can.

If you are going with a carb you can still use your original guages if you hook them up.

You can put in electronic ignition without problems.

You can use your gauges regardless, just use the V6 sending units.
