    If the car had a sbo stock leave the mounts in stock location and use the sbo motor mounts. That is how I did the 455 swap in my 1980 Calais many moons ago.

    Ok here are some pics of the frame mounts in my 84HO sorry it is so dirty just got the engine out and have not had time to start the clean up. And to answer your other question the engine mounts attach in the rear set of mount holes in the side of the block. My car had a 307 in it but the 455 will mount exactly the same. HTH, David
