Chrysler looked at it and gave up. They were hoping to replace the SBF in the Tiger. I have seen some SBC swaps where the cut out the hood latch area for a rear distributor fit. There are a few LS installs also but the entire front end is stubbed out and with aluminum inner fenders. Kind of Pro Street, like this BBF in a early Alpine on this site. You will need rack and pinion steering. That said, the 360 is the same externally as the 273.
