Step By Step 350 sbc Build??

Hi, im new to the forum. my dad and i just got a 1989 yj jeep. it has the 4.2 i believe and the 999 trans. also has the 231 xcase. What we are looking to do is drop a 350 in the jeep. this 350 is stock and come out of a 69 camaro. it has a turbo 350 trans. all we are looking for is some power and a fun driver. We know how to drop a motor and trans in the jeep thats not the problem we just need mounts. we want to know what hooks to where (vaccum lines etc.) i know we will need a adaptor for our trans-xcase so we have that and a radiator but what else would we need? ------>if anyone has a step by step guide out there please let me know.<------ im sure there are forums out there that have bits and pieces of what i need but i would love for this to become a sticky or something. any help is appreciated.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Thanks Max, i still would like to know some sort of rough step by step...
im getting my parts from novak possibily.
another question i had was is it smart to get the adapter for the trans to xcase or just go ahead and try to find one that will fit on a stock 2wd turbo 350?
if so, that will probably be a lot cheaper than using my existing transfer case and getting a adapter.
thanks.

thanks max. i was wanting an actual step by step to doing this.
but also another question i had was, would it be better to buy a transfer case from a junk yard that will fit on my turbo 350 2wd instead of putting all that money into a adapter kit.
let me know thanks.

look into a 205. there iron and heavy, but indestructable! the 205 came in ford, chevy, and dodge so you should be able to find the right side drop for your needs at any junkyard. you can easily convert it to a twin stick, or pick up a 203t-case and put the two halfs together making a doubler. that'll give you a ton of different ratios for wheeling. you will have to have an adapter for any t-case, i run a 350sbc/350trans combo also, no t-case i've seen bolts to trans directly. i'm running chevy axles so i used the 241 that came in the blazer donor truck. look into the 205 you'll love it!
