Nope, wont work. C4's are for small blocks and 6 cyls. Put a C6 in it. You can run a hopped up 428 with that. They're stout. When my Cruiso takes a dump, I'm going C6.
Actually the Cruiso isn't bad. Keeping them sealed up is a trick. Just DONT back up and put it in Drive while the car is still moving backwards. Big No-No. It can crack the case.

hi
the driveshaft and yoke will work with no modification. the only thing that will need attention is the trans mount. i have / had a c6 in my 60 but never got the rear mount quite right for lack of effort. also it is a little of a tight fit. I am currently getting parts to put a 4 spd toploader in my 60.
