sorry havent been on here in a while. The kid that bought my bII put a 289 with a c6 and dana 20 case. I would go with a 5.0 and a cast iron 4 speed with a 20 case. you get the granny first with the gear driven t case. plus the v8 power. Check www.therangerstation.com They have a lot of info on doing the v8 swap. Its an excellent source when building a bII.
