Moving the engine rearward, how far..?

Hey guys,

I'm thinking of moving the engine rearwards to better balance the weigth for launching, this a race only 81 ElCamino.

The question is, how much should I move the engine to start making a difference in launching?, I'm thinking of maybe 8 to 10 inches, would this be enough? would it make a difference worth the hassle?

My plan is cutting off the whole firewall and the front part of the floor with it, and welding it back wherever it has to be, this would make fitting pedals and stuff much easier.

thanks for replying.

Augusto.
