Question engine compatability

Hello. I'm excited to have found such a great resource. My goal is to hotrod a 1978 350 sl . I have found one that is in great shape and I can't wait to get started. The powerplant and drivetrain that I will be building on is a chevy big block 454 that I want to eventually turbocharge and feul inject, however right now I have the block and I have ordered some custom headers. I have a six speed automatic transmission from a 1997 Corvette that is in excellent shape and i am in the process of deciding on a rear end as well as how to best beef up the suspension. My biggest concern right now is if this could actually become a reality. I do not see any problems with having enough room for the assembly, i would just like to know if there is anyone that can tell me if my basic game-plan is sound, or if a small block 327 rat with a 4 speed camero tranny, for example, is more suitable, Thank you for your time.

Here is one with a Chevy stoker motor - I have seen this car in person and it was an excellent conversion. The guy had to get rid of the steering box and go with a Mustang rack and pinion. Also, you need to find tobias and discuss with him. The one on badbenz kept the car stock from the rear of the Chevy tranny back.
good luck
