Default 500 in van

I have no idea what van you should run, but GM to GM is easier to wire and hook up. You could run a 12 bolt or 9 inch properly preped. A few years back I saw and raced(lost) an Eldorado with the 500 in front, plus another 500 Eldo driveline in the trunk/back seat area. He said once he got the measurements down he just welded the Eldo front subframe to his cut off existing frame. and that plus wires and cables was it. Good Luck

I would say a short wheelbase van would be best
