Question LJ Torana V8 engineering in NSW

so i just bought a lj 2 door torana and it needs alot of work. i am planning to build a tough street car with a blown 383 stroker sbc motor ive had for a few years now. I have a t400 box lined up and a shortened 9" that will go under the rear along with mini tubs and a cage. I want to 4 link the rear and run disk brakes all round.
My question is...
what chassis kit do i need for nsw rego? if so... what is the best? should i build my own from scratch? if i decide to put a bbc in does it change much besides the obvious? do i need a much different chassis kit or what? still legal? wat brakes anyone reccommend? etc? haha any info will be greatly helpful and appreciated and i hope to one day get her finished and run some pretty wuick times down the strip. thanks

I think you will struggle to get any V8 in an LJ freshly engineered and rego'd these days mate, let alone a blown stroker in NSW.

I'd be trying to find an engineer thats up with the new vehicle certifing scheme asap before doing anything as the rules could seriously affect your chances and i doubt you would have any chance with a big block

i work at a shop that does engineers certificates and a 304 in a early block is all good but a chev and a blower is a no go. Just be careful with wheel sizes with the tubs as its all comes down to the wheel track. id speak to a engineers before you get out the grinder as they all say different stuff..
