center section measurement???

i am in the process of designing a frame (full size on paper) i purchased a 9" housing assembly (shorted to 47") with axles. i do not have a center section because i wanted to be sure of my tranny gears before deciding on rear end gear ratio. finally decided on a tremec 5 speed 600 ft lbs #tcet 5008. it showed up yesterday.

my question is, can anyone tell me the length of a strange or currie center section from the face of the housing to the center of the yoke ? i am also interested in the distance of drop from the center of the housing to the center of the yoke. according to the pictures there is quite a bit of drop.

these measurements needs to be as close as possible, they are going to be used to determine how low i can mount the engine/ tranny and still have acceptable driveshaft angle.
thank you for your time, i have had no luck on there web sites or there tech questions. thanks again

anyone have a suggestion on rear end gear ratio for that tranny and 25" diameter tires for a 550hp street runner that would be cool too.
1st= 2.87
od= .64

Here's my measurements on a Currie 9+ carrier, Daytona pinion support and a Strange U1603/1350 pinion yoke:

From the mounting surface forward to the joint center = 9 3/8""
From the pinion center up to the top of the carrier = 8"
From the left carrier side (passenger side) to the pinion center = 5 1/4"
From the right carrier side to pinion center = 6 3/4"
