If it matches an existing CPL number. pistons, injs, cam, timing, turbo, heads, manifold

And also the 475 HP used two turbos and a different rocker box. You would need all of the twin turbo piping and larger air cleaner.The 475 used a extra thermostat on the side of the block also.The 475 is a variable timing cam follow engine with the air controls for it so sounds to me you need a different engine.

From what I understand I can use the cam in this engine with matching pistons and injectors the 475 cam is often use without some of the listed items you mentioned above in a standard block single tu rbo entry.....The boyz over at pp says timed it 80 I prefer .72
