Yep, unless its a maximum effort motor use Shorty headers, the hassle of long tubes just isn't worth it, make sure your cooling system is bulletproof, I ran a big Howe alum Rad and twin elec fans on a stout 383 and it worked OK. If lowering watch your pinion angle or you may end up chasing driveline vibrations. Spend the money on a diff, the little 7.5 isn't going to live long in front of anything real strong....especially if it hooks. Buy a small cap HEI and you should have plenty of firewall space.
