Default 460 to Windsor conversion?

What changes would need to be made to the frame of my Midstates to convert it from a 460 to Windsor? A cloud of smoke from the driver's sidepipe has me thinking about the possible causes and I want to be prepared for the worst, a new engine.

Fabricate new motor mounts and maybe a new trans. mount.
Good move going to the Windsor, cast away that anchor and be prepared to drive a Cobra that can corner instead of just doing burnouts.

I still love the BB, and if I can keep it I will. The weight didn't make as much of a difference as I thought it would. My problem is that the same parts cost more for a big block than they do for a Windsor, plus I am not a good enough driver to use the low end torque without spinning out.
