Add at least some 3.42 gears and a posi to your rearend. What all is being done to the motor? That determines how strong the transmission will have to built. If you just dropping in a stock 454 then a good trans rebuild, a converter w/ a lil more than stock stall, and a tranny fluid cooler should be fine.

This is a very huge wheel rim upgrade! Do you need to replace most of the suspension to put this wheel on? I just wanted to know coz it looks like the cars rake elevated drastically.

You should replace all of your suspension components anyway just because their probably worn out and because of their age. What size tires are you running on the rims?
