My engine came accessory free, looking at the way it sits, I would say they won't fit.
The Speedway accessory kit will also not fit. Tried that, sent it back.
You'll need a F-body oil pain, F-body exhaust manifolds and to either covert to F-body accessories or make your own mounting brackets.
I'll be making brackets of some kind as an F-body accessory conversion is +$1,000 by the time you get done replacing the waterpump, crank pulley, idler, ect.
