You didn't say what kind of exaust your using. There are several companies that sell Block hugger headers that run very close to the engine to solve this kind of problem. Have you looked at them yet?

SSmallblock Chevy exhaust manifolds came in many varieties ; Ive been collecting them for years. Try putting a 350 into a Samurai mini-jeep! Just dug into my pile until found 2 that fit and the castiron manifold breathe pretty good. So just check around.

P.S. YOu could move steering over a little ;Ive never fooled with it much but I see guys posting about universal steering joints too.

well i'm pretty old so... newer chev trucks actually mounted the engine off to the side! or maybe you could cut alittle of the frame and reinforce it. best to shop the header market. as posted there are a bunch of different manifolds that have the exit points in either the rear or the middle, and you could even turn one around to exit the front. or, i have had people tell me they made a double u-joint shaft out of two craftsmen 1/2"drive u joints welded to an extention for a steering shaft or you can buy one for $250 from Flaming River. they have a web site www.flamingriver.com and i believe there are other mfg.s of them out there somewhere
