I have recently acquired a low mileage early 70s buick 455 with a 400 long tail tranny that I would like to swap into my 72 formula 350 firebird. Can this be done by simply swapping out motor mounts or am I opening up a can of worms???

I think you might be opening a can of worms.
If it is more power you are looking for I would sell the buick 455 and use that money to beef up the pontiac 350. It is a true pontiac engine right? The pontiac 350's have alot of potential and can produce good power with the right combo.

You may want to go to the pontiac site highperformancepontiac.com there are a couple guy's over there that really know there engines.
