Everything that fits the Wbody will fit the Hbody, engine wise that is. The Wbody has things crammed in much tighter. The Hbody is far more open and much easier to work on things. Even changing the plugs is way easier.

Ack, my bad, didn't look close enough. The 2000+ isn't much better. The older Hbodys are much easier.
