well, it can be done.. you will need upgrades to handle the additional weight and the heat .. higher rated front coils, larger, preferably alum radiator, and a hood with enough clearance for a big block .. along with headers or manifolds to match..and if its an automatic, you need a transmission and torque convertor capable of handling the power.. the Dana differential will be kinda iffey at that power level.. I m putting 525HP thru mine ..its built up with all HD parts and so far is holding but I never put slicks or real sticky drag radials on it. and the 85 MPH speedo you have will be less than useless ..probably a few more items I m forgetting
