Dirty thought....

So I have two project vehicles and really only need one. My scout with an aging near 40 year old motor. Rebuilt tranny and rebuilt 3/4 ton running gear. A few months back I picked up a Malibu with a fresh 450hp small block and a fresh turbo 350.
Someone this weekend offered up the parts to convert my 2wd turbo 350 to a 4wd one and a 205 tcase.
My dirty thoughts
Put the chev power plant in the scout.
Will the turbo 350 with a very aggressive shift kit 3500 stall TC and ratchet shifter work with 411 geared axles and will it be reliable?
I'll probably run around 36-38 inch tire again.

thoughts please

You need a stall convertor with that motor and the high stall would cause a lot of heat wheelin.I got a bell housing for a standard trans if ya want.

Thats what Mike was tellin me I'd need a lower stall convertor unless I just wanted to mud the truck and that I dont want. I could go standard but then I'd have to use a clutch and heavy truck clutches and me dont work well. I end up spillin beer. Unless its a hydro clutch?

D60 front with 35 spline axles in and out.
Currently has FFD60 rear may keep may swap to a FF14B
Crossover and highsteer.
39" Boggers.
Custom driveshafts with 1450 ujoints.
Keeping with the coils in the front (bronco 4" lift coils and buckets)and leafs in the rear.
Full autometer gauge set.
Maybe even a splash of nice paint not rattle can.
