Installing 454 In 91 S10

I currently have a 350 in my truck now using the v6 mounting spots. It's bolted to a th400 tranny. I tired of my 350 and want something bigger so I found a deal for a 454. After reading other reviews and other forums and pics about installing a big block into an s10 I want to ask you guys about the basic installation.

Here's my plan...
New Solid Motor mounts
Hooker Hugger Headers with a local shop that will be welding some pre bent 3" pipe to go under the cab and out the side.

A/C housing will be cut
Driverside header will be chopped and re-welded to clear steering shaft.

I seen from other successful setups that the big block mounts in the same spot as the 350 being if I get to mounts to adjust my in/out setup.

I've pre-ordered the following:

LUN-00021LK Lunati Bracket Master II Cam and Lifter Kits
Cam and Lifters, Hydraulic Flat Tappet, Advertised Duration 304/ 324, Lift .500/ .510, Chevy, Big Block, Kit


Weiand Stealth Intake Manifold - idle - 6500
Edelbrock 750 Carburetor - Might exchage for a Proform or QUickfuel carb
Fel-Pro Cork Gaskets
A friend is giving me his old Valley girdle for my big block.
4.56 Gears | Thinking About some 4.11's though

Anything else you guys think I would need to do to get this bad boy on the road? Don't worry about my rear end. I already have a GM 12 rear sitting with a Strange Third member. I do have 4 links sitting somewhere I my garage or in the attic or maybe the city's got it. I just need the initail help on the motor

Thanks guys

Another corossmember was used so no worries. Plus i'm taking my exhaust out just right behind the cab anyways. All I need help with is motor mounts. Will they bolt where I have mine now or will I have to use this extention thing like the guy did on his.

If anyone has any custom motor mounts for Big Block motor swaps for s10's please let me know.
