I am thinking about buying a 1979 Camaro, and i was wondering how easy it would be to swap in something like a 454. Also would i have to buy a new transmission or could i use the stock one?

Most engine swaps on Chevys are extremely easy. Didn't say what kind of tranny you have but unless you plan to abuse the car the stock transmission will probably be fine.

Just make sure all smog equiptment is included with new engine. Big block is MUCH heavier than a small block. Front end will need heavier springs etc. Std. trans is whimpy, may last a while, but think, you will double the power to trans, Hmm
