To start with did you measure anything before you cut the floors out. Did you think about where the engine might sit, or how much you can channel it, or will you hit anything, will you have to "Z" the frame on both ends, how far up in the fenders my wheels will go.

If you did none of this, and the car is still sitting on the frame on the body mounts you had better get the tape out, you didn't say any thing about it just that you cut the floors out.
